Boca Raton native and pop superstar Ariana Grande has been honored by the city of Manchester, England, for her response to a terror attack in May.

A suicide bomber attacked an arena shortly after Grande's concert, killing 22 people including young children.

Grande returned to the city in June to perform an all-star benefit concert, as well as meet with those injured in the attack.

On Wednesday, Manchester's city council voted to make Grande its first "honorary citizen."
