Ariana Grande's first live performance since death of Mac Miller

Ariana Grande Ariana Grande's first live performance since death of Mac Miller

Ariana Grande often feels guilty about suffering from anxiety as she knows she's the "luckiest girl in the world".

Backed by an all-female orchestra, Ariana Grande performed her smash-hit, "God is a Woman", during an exclusive and intimate performance.

The airing of the performance comes after the star confirmed the first leg of her "Sweetener" tour to promote her latest album, which will start with a four-month run of the United States and Canada in Spring next year.

"Can't believe I nearly let my anxiety ruin this for me", she posted on her Instagram Story, later adding that she was honored to be included.

"It's just in your head and it's just so insane how powerful it is.The most important thing is to remember that...everybody has this".

"You have ups and downs and sometimes you'll go weeks at a time where you will be crushing it and there will be no anxiety... and then something will happen that can trigger it and then you have a couple of down days".

During a previous interview with Beats 1 Ari spoke about how "mental health is so important", going on to say: "People don't pay enough mind to it because we have things to do".

"That's not a realistic goal for anybody to have".

The special, which airs in the United Kingdom on Thursday (01Nov18), was filmed in September.

Former Victorious actress is also planning on making three other appearances in New York during the course of her tour, one in Western NY followed up by hitting two major performance venues in NYC. That wasn't long after the overdose death of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller - which occurred the same day of the BBC special.
