“I don't know what to say. Words don't suffice,” Grande wrote after the city council unanimously voted her in. “I'm moved and honored. My heart is very much still there. I love you. Thank you.”
She ended the post with a bee emoji, the symbol of the city, which she also had recently tattooed on herself.

The May 22 attack took the lives of 22 people and injured many more. Grande returned to the city for the One Love Manchester benefit concert, which raised more than $13 million for people affected in the suicide bombing.
Grande is the middle of her Dangerous Woman tour and performed in Mexico on Wednesday night.
