    Ariana Grande Returns to Stage to Honor Manchester Victims

    Ariana Grande and a star-studded lineup of performers took the stage in Manchester, England, nearly two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people outside a Grande concert at Manchester Arena. The concert raised money for those affected by the attack.

    Ariana Grande's comeback continues.

    The singer took to the stage on Friday at the 2018 Coachella music festival in Indio, California, and gave a short, surprise performance during Kygo's set.

    She performed her new single, "No Tears Left to Cry," which was released that day, as well as Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing." Grande sported lavender-tinted crimped hair and wore it in her signature high ponytail. She paired the hairstyle with a matching lavender cropped tank top and flared skirt and nude thigh-high boots.

    Grande had stirred speculation she would be appearing at Coachella by posting on Instagram a video of her and boyfriend Mac Miller in a helicopter.

    Earlier this week, Grande surprised fans with a rare social media post to announce the name of her upcoming single. She also released its cover art, which showed her sporting a new look: A platinum blonde hairstyle, rather than her trademark high light brunette ponytail.

    "No Tears Left to Cry" is Grande's first single from her upcoming fourth studio album and her first since 22 people were killed in a suicide bombing at her concert in Manchester, England, in May 2017.

    In the weeks following the attack, Grande put together a star-studded One Love Manchester benefit concert to help survivors and the families of the victims. She continued touring later in the summer and fall of 2017.

    This past March, Grande made her first public appearance in six months at Madonna's Oscars after-party alongside her boyfriend. Also that month, she performed at the March for Our Lives protest in Washington D.C.
