Ariana Grande Pays Tribute to Youngest Victim of Manchester Attack During Buenos Aires Concert
By Jackie Willis
Ariana Grande gave yet another heartfelt tribute to a victim of the Manchester bombing that occurred after her concert in May.
During her show in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the 24-year-old pop star performed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," which she first sang at the One Love benefit show just weeks after the attack. Upon singing the final note of classic ballad during her concert in Buenos Aires this week, Grande looked up to the sky and blew a kiss, saying, "Happy birthday, Saffie."
Roussos was attending Grande's show in Manchester with her mother, Lisa Roussos, and her older sister, Ashlee Bromwich, when the concert venue was bombed, killing 22 people, including seven children. During an interview with the BBC, Roussos' family talked about how excited the little girl was to attend Grande's concert.
"She was Ariana Grande-obsessed, so to see how happy she was," Bromwich said. "It was just ... obviously I had to go with her."
"She was just counting the days, the seconds and it was just Ariana Grande until nine, 10 o'clock at night," Roussos' father, Andrew Roussos, recalled. "And she would sing and dance to every single song."
Her dad emotionally added, "We've lost everything. We have, we've lost everything, because life will just never be the same."
