Ariana Grande has released a live recording of her emotional performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow as a single, with proceeds from sales of the track going to charity.

The 23-year-old star performed the famous Wizard of Oz song on Sunday at One Love Manchester, a benefit concert she organised following a suicide bombing at her concert at Manchester Arena on 22 May.

Twenty-two people were killed in the atrocity, which took place as fans were leaving the show. The youngest was eight years old.

The One Love event, held on Sunday, featured performances from artists including Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Coldplay, with a surprise appearance from Manchester’s own Liam Gallagher.

It raised more than £2.7m for the British Red Cross We Love Manchester Fund, taking the total past £10m by Monday. The fund was established for the victims of the concert attack and their families.
