Following the horrific attack on concertgoers at Machester Arena in May, Ariana Grande is holding a concert to benefit the victims and their families—and she’s not alone. Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan, and Usher are just some of the acts who are confirmed to perform at Old Trafford stadium for the concert, which is called One Love Manchester and has already sold out. The BBC will televise the concert as it happens live on Sunday at 7 p.m. GMT, with several other British stations rearranging their lineups to cover it as well. The Hollywood Reporter reports that networks in 38 countries have also agreed to broadcast the event.

In the U.S., the concert will air live at 2 p.m. EST on ABC’s Freeform cable channel (formerly ABC Family) and will also stream live via Twitter, as well as on Grande’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. A one-hour special with highlights from the concert will then air on multiple ABC stations later Sunday night, after the NBA finals. “This Sunday, when Ariana Grande and her friends return to the stage, the world will stand united with families in Manchester and across the United Kingdom,” said Disney ABC Television Group president Ben Sherwood. “ABC and Freeform look forward to sharing the music community’s message of love, hope and resilience.”
