Ariana Grande is planning on returning to Manchester following the blast that killed 22 and injured dozens. The singer took to Twitter to pen a lengthy letter to share her love for her fans that were affected by the terrorist attack at her concert.

"My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones,” she says. “There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better. However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”

Grande promised to return to the "brave city" of Manchester to hold a benefit concert to raise money for relief. "We won't let hate win," she says. "We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy."

As People shares, 22 people were killed and 119 were injured following the suicide bomber attack. Salman Abedi was identified as a suspect and terrorist group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.
