HOLLIE BOOTH’S STORY

The Saturday 21 April edition of ITV show Britain’s Got Talent will feature a powerful performance by a dance troupe including a girl injured in the Manchester Arena attack.

RISE, who share an inspirational message of positivity and hope, perform an emotional routine to the Ariana Grande’s anthem One Last Time which was re-released last year to raise money for those affected by the atrocity in May last year.

The dancers perform their routine in solidarity with 13-year-old Hollie Booth, who returned to the city for the first time since the attack.

Hollie, from Sheffield, was watching American pop star Ariana on May 22 when the tragedy occurred and has benefited from the generosity of the public after £21m was raised for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

Hollie and her friends picked the song sung as an encore by Ariana on the night of the attack, and during their performance they wore T-shirts with the Manchester bee emblazoned on the front.

“We’re doing this for us and we’re doing it for Hollie and we’re doing it for everybody. We’re doing it for Manchester and to make Manchester proud,” declared one of Hollie’s pals before they took to the stage.

Judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon couldn’t hold back the tears as the music started.
