This week, Ariana Grande released the live version of her tune “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to benefit charity — but her generosity isn’t stopping there.
RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the 24-year-old singer is writing an original song to honor the 22 victims who were killed by a suicide terrorist bomber at her May 22 concert in Manchester, U.K.
“In addition to resuming her world tour, Ariana is currently working on a new song about the attack and the aftermath,” a source close to Grande said. “She is writing it herself with the help of several big producers and is planning on releasing the song later this month.”
According to the source, Grande — who recently raised over $12 million at her benefit concert, One Love Manchester — “will release the tribute song on iTunes, and will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to the victims and their families.”
The horrific event has led the young star to grow up quickly.
“She has been forever changed by these events,” the friend said. “Her love for her fans is genuine.”
