    Ariana Grande Returns to Stage to Honor Manchester Victims

    Mariah Carey sent a video message and the stars of the long-running British TV show "Coronation Street" were among the mourners at a funeral for Manchester concert bombing victim Martyn Hett.

    The music-loving 29-year-old was a self-professed "superfan" of the Manchester-set soap opera.

    Hett was one of 22 people killed May 22 when a suicide bomber struck concertgoers leaving an Ariana Grande show in the city in northwest England.

    Hett's "Coronation Street"-themed coffin was taken to Stockport Town Hall in Greater Manchester by horse-drawn carriage Friday for his funeral. A producer and several actors from "Coronation Street" were among hundreds of mourners at the service, whose dress code was "black and fabulous."

    "In a very nice way, Martyn loved being in the limelight and the center of attention," he said. "He would be loving every minute of this fantastic celebration of his life."
