Pop star Justin Bieber had tears in his eyes as he delivered a powerful message about God at One Love Manchester, a star-studded event held to remember and raise funds for the victims of the May 22 terror attack that unfolded at singer Ariana Grande’s concert.
Bieber encouraged the audience to chant “love” and delivered an encouraging message about hope and holding on to one’s faith in the midst of difficulties and pain.
“I’m not going to let go of hope. I’m not going to let go of love. I’m not going to let go of God. Put your hand up if you’re not going to let go,” he said. “God is good in the midst of the darkness. God is good in the midst of the evil. God is in the midst, no matter what’s happening in the world, God is in the midst and he loves you and he’s here for you.”
The Daily Mail reported that Bieber had tears in his eyes as he delivered the speech before an audience of 50,000, which included many of the people who were at Ariana Grande’s original May 22 concert.
Bieber also thanked the crowd for having him there and encouraged people to put their hands up in the air to honor the families impacted by the horrific Manchester terror attack.
