Monday night, a suicide bomber targeted Ariana’s sell-out concert at the Manchester Arena leaving at least 22 dead and 119 more injured. The explosion rang out through the venue’s lobby and as panic began to escalate, Ariana Grande’s mom, Joan, acted quickly like any mother would and rushed a group of approximately 10 fans backstage out of harm’s way.
