Ariana Grande is in line to get honorary citizenship of Manchester.
The council want to hand the singer the honour after she arranged the One Love Manchester benefit concert which raised more than £4million for the victims of the terror attack, after an explosion at Manchester Arena following the singer's performance there last month left 22 dead and many more injured, the Daily Mail reports.
They are proposing a new system, which would recognise those people who aren't residents of the city but still make an outstanding contribution to it.
Council leader Sir Richard Leese told BBC News: '[Many people already see Ariana as] an honorary Mancunian.
This seems a fitting moment to update the way we recognise those who make noteworthy contributions to the life and success of our city.
“We've all had cause to be incredibly proud of Manchester and the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May - with love and courage rather than hatred and fear ... [Ariana had] exemplified this response.”
Manchester City Council also revealed they plan to hold an event to recognise the “great many selfless acts and demonstrations of community spirit in the aftermath of the atrocity”.
Ariana had re-released her track titled One Last Time in aid of Manchester victims.
