Katy Perry Delivers Powerful Performance in Manchester: Watch!

by at .

Katy Perry kept it simple at the One Love Manchester tribute concert on Sunday night.

As previously reported, Ariana Grande and her team organized a fundraising event over the weekend to raise money for the families of victims killed by a terrorist at her concert on May 22.

There were 22 fatalities in all at that initial show in Manchester, along with dozens and dozens of fans who were sent to the hospital with injuries.

In response, Grande issued a couple of powerful statements, while also teaming with such stars as Perry, Chris Martin, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus for yesterday's unique show.

Given her chance to pay tribute to all affected by this horrific act, Perry led the audience in a powerful, stripped-down version of "Part of Me," giving her rendition very simple and extremely emotional.

As you can see above and below, the 32-year old artist took to the stage in an all-white outfit and addressed the crowd of 60,000-plus individuals, along with a global audience of millions watching online and on TV at home.

"It’s not easy to always choose love, is it, especially in moments like these, right?” she said, adding:

“It can be the most difficult thing to do. But love conquers fear and love conquers hate. And this love that you choose will give you strength and it’s our greatest power …

"I encourage you to choose love even when it’s difficult. Let no one take that away from you."

Perry then launched into her 2012 hit, turning the pop single into a moving message of empowerment that had her fans singing along at the Emirates Old Trafford Stadium.

It was one of many highlights from the show.

Elsewhere during the evening, Justin Bieber talked about God and hope in delivering a short speech after his two acoustic performances.

And then Grande closed the concert with a version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" that left everyone in tears.

Watch Perry do her part below and let's all applaud the singers who took time out of their lives to participate in this important, charitable endeavor.

Jobs very well done all around.
