Ariana Grande - One Last Time - 99p - Proceeds to charity

93
Found 4th Jun
Not really a deal but a great way to donate to charity and also enjoy the (debatably) lovely song. At least 76p (the proceeds made) of each sale will be donated to the We Love Manchester Fund in coordination with the British Red Cross.

This charity version of the single was released in celebration of the Ariana Grande & Friends One Love Manchester Concert.

I'd never heard of arienda grande until the tragic incident. I looked at … I'd never heard of arienda grande until the tragic incident. I looked at her on BBC yesterday doing that charity concert, and I have to say, what a load of old tosh!! Sorry. I know it's for a good cause, but I've never heard such a load of crap as her singing. And what the hell was those key rings about in her hair ???I won't be buying any of her music I'm afraid. It's terrible.



​well why even bother commenting if you don't wanna buy her music and just want to **** her off? she's done more to help the victims than our own government. she's personally donated a million pound, she's paying for all the victims funerals, she visited the victims in hospital and she helped arrange last night's concert just 2 weeks after the attack and she's only 23. im no fan but personally I think you should cut her a bit of slack, but if you think complaining about her having keyrings in her hair and wobbly vocals is justifiable then that shows what sort of person you are

Grief thieves.

anyone that votes this cold needs a reality check!

I'm no fan of Ariana but I can't deny she's a great singer and, well, little kids like what they like and uncool adults always hate it. Way back in the mists of time my obsession was Adam Ant It broke my heart thinking of all those youngsters scared and traumatised on a night when they should have been carefree, loving life, excited to see a hero in the flesh, as kids should.

Peace and love to you all

We don't know exactly what happens to that 23p. Maybe it will go to her own grief counseling? Perhaps buying gifts for the hospitalized? Granted I'm seeing this in an optimistic light, but, what we do know is 77% of proceeds are going to the sufferers (in coordination with BRC).

Personally I'd prefer people to donate directly to British Red Cross, but this could be seen as a net positive for the cause, as Ariana could bring millions of fans to the cause of helping the sufferers.

If it's a scam it's dumb as well as bad.
How do I know it's not a scam? The Web is full of them.
Such incidents and the emotional response are a scammers dream;
Even worse, one could easily end up paying the perpetrators.

this app helps us all save so much money. for once lets give something back. 99p wont hurt anyone here but it will do more than help the charity, it will show the unity of everyone wanting to help with numbers.

Stream it and put a quid to charity ...

Using the words proceeds is so misleading. It's either the gross (everything) or net (after expenses). If I did a bake sale and said all proceeds to charity that would mean everything (gross).

Buying something that you don't want or need "for charity" is just pointless virtue signalling, so yes, it's a bad thing.

Having looked at the Red Cross page for the "We Love Manchester" event, it is notable that it doesn't specify how any of the money raised will be spent and the add-on statement relating to London Bridge ("for victims of terror attacks anywhere in the UK") is nebulous enough that the money could end up going to support terrorism - afterall, Syrian migrants are "victims of terror attacks", they're living "in the UK" and ISIS have openly admitted that they have inserted fighters into the ranks of the migrants.

No thanks, I'll give direct if I so choose to. Cold.

It costs a lot of money to offer MP3s for download. That's why piracy sites are billions of pounds in debt.

tragic events, you said it, but then your compassion went right out of the window, if you have an ounce of compassion you will delete your post and apologise, though some people are just to stupid for words.

at only 23 years old to have won 47 music awards from around the world, … at only 23 years old to have won 47 music awards from around the world, she cannot be that bad can she?



46 of them because she looks half decent...music awards are rarely to do with the quality of the music, and more about how many kids/teenagers idolise the artists.

I don't doubt Ariana can sing, but her music isn't to my taste. Already donated to the fund anyhow, so no 23p going off to 'The Man'.

If you have no interest in the song, why not just give 99p directly to the charity?

Hopefully a nice chunk of the cash was paid over to the police for all their services. I'd also like to see a few sizeable donations to the hospitals who helped, and are continuing to help, the injured. Nice gesture to pay for funerals etc, but tragically no amount of money will bring them back. We need to stop the bombing and killing of children in other lands. Until we do I've no doubt that our citizens, young & old, will continue to be 'fair game' to the extremists.

I've never heard of "Arienda Grande" either.

Mike Adamson will be nursing a semi right now with the amount of money pouring in. Only paid himself £173000 last year, should be in line for a nice fat bonus and we're only in June.

Musical taste differs between people. What you like others may not. I had never heard of her before, hate this type of music and have no interest in it but I can at least see what good she has done. Perhaps chose a better way/time to voice your opinion on your musical tastes. You have come across as a heartless moron.

Setting musical opinions aside, this artist has raised millions in the space of a couple of weeks for victims of a terrorist attack that wasn't in her home country. What have you done? I have nothing but respect for her even if I don't agree with her music/style.

There was some Daily Mail charity page that appeared not long after the events at the Ariana Grande concert. I mean, I appreciate honesty, but it did raise an eyebrow to see "MOST of the proceeds will go to charity".

Most of the people commenting underneath noticed and mentioned too, though.

We you watching the same Concert as me? I am in my 40s and cannot deny the girl has a voice! And singing under such pressure. I was impressed. The type of music may not be your thing but she is marketed towards teenage girls. Try to be a little bit more open minded pls.

Or are you simply trolling?

I won't be purchasing as will donate directly to the redcross fund but still a hot deal.

I guess just not a lot of teenagers on here to vote it into stratospheric heat. Because trust me, this will be number 1 for a while.

So how much do you think the CEO of one the UK's largest charities should be paid? Or are you suggesting they could find a volunteer to lead a complex international organisation which spends tens of millions of pounds every year helping people in emergency situations?

A pertinent comment and a devastating a loss to the cause. Don't apologise, Grande only has herself to blame.
I hope this doesn't mean you will stop writing to Viz.

So it's ok for the government to profit massively on each one sold then.

Just think of them rolling around in all that money. Way more than we've got. Or the injured, I expect.
I think it's clear who the real victims are in all this.

To fund the NHS and Policing etc etc....

Yes.

That is how the tax system works.

I just think it's slightly annoying that there always seems to be someone else benefiting from the cause other than those in need. And worse of all the government!
Encourage you to give whilst quietly pocketing a small fortune!

It's purchasing a good, and part of the cost of the good is taxation.
If you want to give directly to charity, you can also do a gift-aid claim which increases the amount.

You aren't giving specifically to charity if you buy this song, you are buying a song and assuming that the proceeds will go to charity as is claimed. If you want to give specifically to charity, then give specifically to charity.

Don't think running a charity is more difficult than running the country, yet is paid a hell of a lot more than the PM who spends tens of billions of pounds every year, and far more than the red cross in foreign aid alone.
