(KGTV) - Four days removed from the deadly attack on concert goers in Manchester, England, singer Ariana Grande has released a statement on the bombing via Twitter.

"My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester attack and their loved ones," Grande wrote. "There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better. 

"However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way."


Twenty-two people were killed and at least 59 others were injured as result of Monday's suicide bombing. UK police have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the attack and have continued raiding residences across the country.

Grande also announced intentions to return to Manchester and hold a concert benefiting the victims and families of the attack.

The singer's representatives announced this week Grande's "Dangerous Woman Tour" would be suspended through June 5.

"We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy," Grande wrote.
