Wearing a sweatshirt that read "One Love Manchester", the singer, 23, opened her performance with her hit song "Be Alright", followed by "Break Free".
She told the audience, "Manchester, we're gonna be all right".
The singer became overcome with his emotion as he asked the crowd to honour "those who were taken".
"I don't feel or smell or hear or see any fear in this building", Williams said.
All proceeds from the concert, taking place at the Emirates Old Trafford stadium in the city, are going to the Red Cross's Manchester Emergency Fund to help victims and families impacted by the attack.
Grande and some of her famous friends held a benefit concert in Manchester, England Sunday to benefit the victims of a terrorist attack that took place following her performance there almost two weeks ago.
Just hours after a terror attack in London Saturday night, Grande's show promoter took to Twitter to assure fans the concert would go on as planned.
On Friday, Grande visited some of her injured fans at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
Ariana later brought the concert to an emotional climax with a powerful performance of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
The pop star was joined on stage by Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and more. The attack killed 22 and wounded dozens. The song includes the lyrics: 'But you are not alone in this, and you are not alone in this, as brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand'.
"From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was meant to be a safe space for my fans". At one point, the stadium dedicated a minute of silence to the victims, and later, Grande shared the story of when she met the mother of her 15-year-old fan Olivia Campbell, who passed away at her show on May 22.
Ms Richardson said Grande was "very courageous to come back so soon".
Just weeks ago, 22 were killed and over 50 were injured at an Ariana concert in the city.
They said Saturday's vehicle and knife rampage in London did little to ease their worries.
"I am pleased to say we have the full support of Greater Manchester police and the government and are assured the safety of all those attending is the highest priority", Braun wrote.
