One year ago today (May 22) 22 people were killed at the singer's Manchester Arena show.

Ariana Grande paid tribute to the victims of last year's bombing at her Manchester Arena show with an emotional tweet early Tuesday morning (May 22). "Thinking of you all today and every day. I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day," she wrote just after midnight. 

One year ago today suicide bomber Salman Abedi pulled off the brazen bombing outside of Grande's show in the Arena as thousands of fans were streaming out of the May 22, 2017 concert, killing 22 and injuring more than 500. Grande returned to Manchester two weeks later to perform at an all-star fundraising concert.

According to CNN, the city will mark the day with a series of memorials, including a service at the Manchester cathedral and a musical tribute in the evening featuring the local school choir that performed with Grande at the One Love Concert and the Manchester Survivors Choir, made up of people who attended the concert that night. BBC News reported that the final half hour of the concert -- which will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Manchester -- will include versions of Grande's "One Last Time," Elbow's "One Day Like This," Oasis' "Don't Look Back in Anger" and Take That's "Never Forget."

UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Prince William are expected at the cathedral service, in addition to families of the victims and injured and emergency responders; a minute of silence will be held at 2:30 p.m. local time and bells will ring at at the city center at 10:31 p.m., marking the exact time of the explosion.
