Ariana Grande is now an honorary citizen of Manchester

Ariana Grande's brave and heroic acts towards Manchester have been recognised - the Manchester city council have now granted the singer with honorary citizenship as a gesture of thanks.

Ariana Grande responded on Instagram with a message stating her deepest gratitude towards Manchester's response, declaring how moved and honoured she feels. 

"I don't know what to say... Words don't suffice."

Manchester's granting of an honorary citizenship arises from the singer's heroism when she returned to perform for Manchester during the One Love Manchester concert, just after the tragic attacks during her tour in Manchester that killed 22 people.

Manchester City Council Leader Sir Richard Leese declared her actions as bringing comfort to thousands, not to mention the millions raised for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

Returning to perform and face the citizens of Manchester after such a traumatic experience would be heartbreaking, and to do is extremely courageous. Understandably, Richard Leese proposed Ariana Grande as the first honorary citizen of Manchester to honour as a tribute to her bravery and compassion. 

We will forever respect Ariana Grande for her actions towards Manchester!
