James Corden's Message to Manchester
“My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Manchester tonight.”
James Corden gave a heartfelt tribute to the victims and families affected by the incident in Manchester last night.
“Good evening. While taping our show earlier tonight, we heard the horrific news coming out of Manchester in England. There had been an incident at Ariana Grande’s concert. We still have no real information about what’s happening. All we know is the tragic news that there are multiple fatalities, and many injuries,” said a very emotional Corden.
“Many of you won’t have ever been to Manchester, but you will definitely have heard of it. It’s famous all over the world for so many wonderful things. Great football teams in Man City, Man United. It’s famous for incredible music—Oasis and Joy Division. It was the birthplace of the leader of the suffragettes; it’s the home of the inventor of the first computer. It’s a place full of comedy and curries and character."
