    Three classic Mancunian songs and an Ariana Grande number will form the singalong finale of The Manchester Together – With One Voice event on 22 May.

    The Albert Square event, part of a programme marking one year since the Manchester Arena terror attack, will see an array of local choirs come together in song to share the spirit of solidarity and remember all those affected by the Manchester Arena attack – culminating in a huge communal singalong. The combined choirs will feature around 3,500 voices, with every choir which applied to take part involved in the performance at some point.

    The songs for the finale have been confirmed as Ariana Grande’s One Last Time, One Day Like This by Elbow, Don’t Look Back in Anger by Oasis and Never Forget by Take That.

    Among the participating choirs are Manchester Survivors Choir, a group made up people who were at the Arena on the night of the attack, mostly parents and children, and met through a social media network set up for those affected.
