Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester show is now a Spotify playlist, featuring all the performances from Sunday. Grande is also reportedly planning to push out her version of ‘Over The Rainbow’, which closed the show, as a charity single.

Already, £2 million was added to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund – which has now raised over £10 million in total – during Grande’s benefit concert. The fund was set up by Manchester City Council and the British Red Cross in the wake of the bomb attack which killed 22 people leaving a Grande concert at the Manchester Arena last month.

The popstar is already set to appear highly on this week’s UK singles chart, too possibly at number one, with her song ‘One Last Time’, which fans have been buying since the attack. That single has been repackaged as a charity release, with 76p of every 99p download on iTunes going to the We Love Manchester fund.

Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher is reportedly donating any new song royalties generated by Oasis track ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ to the We Love Manchester Fund. The song has become something of an anthem to the city’s resilient response to the attacks, and Coldplay’s Chris Martin performed it alongside Grande at Sunday’s show.

Those royalty reports follow criticism from Gallagher’s brother Liam that Noel did not appear at Sunday’s concert. However, according to The Sun, Noel was not asked to perform at the show. Chris Martin meanwhile tweeted: “Thank you Noel Gallagher for giving your blessing and encouragement to play ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ and ‘Live Forever’ on Sunday. Everyone knew in advance you couldn’t be there physically, so thank you for being there in spirit and for lending us those incredible songs”.

Anyway, I’m not sure this is really the place for continued Gallagher brother bickering. Here’s the One Love Manchester show on Spotify:
