After the horrific events on 22 May, Ariana Grande could easily have gone home, hid herself away and dealt with the enormous trauma and pressure that she no doubt felt, and no one could have blamed her.

Twenty-two people, including seven children, died when suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a device as concert-goers began leaving a show by the United States singer at Manchester Arena on May 22.

Ariana Grande conducted herself with the kind of grace and poise, the kind of compassion and composure, that even saints bow to.

Family members of some of the victims sat in the public gallery to witness the motion passed, as council leader Sir Richard Leese called Grande a "a young American woman for whom it would have been understandable if she never wanted to see this place again".

"We further recognise the exceptional way in which Manchester people from all parts and from all communities that make up this great city, came together in sympathy, in defiance and in unity".

"But no - instead she, as an artist, a performer, was determined that she would not perform again until she had returned to Manchester to perform", he said.

It adds: "The council further resolves that Ariana Grande should be the first to be made an honorary citizen of the city of Manchester".
