Ariana Grande's mother Joan reportedly mingle with fans
Joan Grande – who was present at her daughter’s Manchester gig when a suicide bomber killed 22 people – spent time talking to concert-goers and urged them to not be frightened.
According to eyewitnesses, the US singer’s mother told them ”to be strong and not be afraid”.
A picture of Joan has circulated on Twitter, showing her meeting a teenage fan who was at the benefit concert enjoying the music.

A Twitter account posted the picture and wrote alongside it: “Ariana Grande’s mum is strolling through the crowd telling fans: ‘Do not be afraid #onelovemanchester.”
But, it wouldn’t be the first time Joan has helped fans as it was claimed she rushed to help many people to safety when she heard the explosion at her daughter’s concert in Manchester on May 22.
It is thought she was sitting in the front row at the time and according to TMZ, she reportedly saved as many as 10 children on the night as she took them backstage.
Almost two weeks on from the attack, Ariana raised £2 million for those affected by what happened.
