23 year old is to be recognised for her efforts in organising the charity concert at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, which featured Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.

Manchester City Council is looking to recognise those who have made contributions to  city.

The meeting agenda states: ‘This council recognises that the loss of so many innocent lives cruelly murdered on  night of May 22 at Manchester is something that will always stay in our hearts and minds.

‘We recognise too  magnificent response to this tragedy from people already at the scene, from first responders, from  vast range of public service workers, and from many ordinary members of the public.

‘We further recognise  exceptional way in which Manchester people from all parts and from all communities that make up this great city, came together in sympathy, in defiance and in unity.

‘The events of May 22 and  days after have made us aware that though the city has many award ceremonies that other than Freedom of  City, we have nothing to recognise outstanding and exceptional contributions.’

It adds: ‘The council further resolves that Ariana Grande should be the first to be made an honorary citizen of city of Manchester.”

The meeting is due to begin at 10am at Manchester Town Hall.
