Ariana Grande's Brother Frankie Shares Powerful Message in Wake of Manchester Attack

Twenty two people were killed and more than 50 injured when a suicide bomber struck just moments after Ariana left the stage at Manchester Arena on May 22. "Music is the worldwide language of peace".

That's where the singer's mom lives, and her house - which is in a gated community - has gone above and beyond on extra security recently, with around-the-clock guards stationed outside of it.

And, completing his Twitter spree by urging fans to donate to the Red Cross, he added: "I love you all so very much and thank you for your strength during this incredibly hard time".

Earlier this weekend, Ariana announced that she will be hosting a benefit concert in Manchester in honor of those lost.

"Hi my loves! I'm back", he wrote. However, one caring and logical dad took to Twitter to share some words of wisdom for the young singer, encouraging her to ignore whatever her strategists are saying and take time to process her feelings.

The message has been retweeted more than 28,000 times and received a lot of support online from people describing themselves as parents with a similar perspective or as fans of the musician.

We will not quit or operate in fear. "Your fans aren't going anywhere".

"The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out".

"Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before", Grande wrote on May 26.

We won't let hate win.

In the aftermath, Ariana postponed her tour and returned home to Florida.

From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was meant to be a safe place for my fans.

Numerous victims of Monday's attack were teenagers and children, including an 8-year-old girl named Saffie Roussos.

The incident also drew the world's attention to a group of homeless men, who have been credited with rushing to the scene to comfort victims and assist rescuers. British investigators continue to search for links to potential accomplices as they widen their investigation and continue to conduct raids, rounding up suspects as far away as Germany, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
