There Is Some Great News Coming For Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande looks set to receive some good news after the worst month of her life.

The four-time Grammy nominee is set to become the first honorary citizen of Manchester for her contributions to the city following the deadly Manchester Arena attack, which killed many and left much more injured.

In light of the One Love Manchester benefit concert in early June, which has raised millions for the victims of the attack, Manchester Town Hall officials have announced plans to recognise the “great many selfless acts and demonstrations of community spirit" in the aftermath of the attack with an event and granting honorary citizenship to the star, according to The Guardian. 

 Sir Richard Leese, the leader of the Manchester city council, said, "This seems a fitting moment to update the way we recognise those who make noteworthy contributions to the life and success of our city."

"We've all had cause to be incredibly proud of Manchester and the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May, with love and courage rather than hatred and fear," he continued.

"Ariana Grande exemplified this response. I think many people would already consider her an honorary Mancunian and we would be delighted, if the council approves the proposal, to make it official."

The proposal will go before the council on July 12.
