Portions of Ariana Grande’s benefit concert Sunday for the victims of the May 22 bombing will be available for U.S. viewers on the ABC network, Variety reported Friday.

The network will broadcast highlights from the concert after Game 2 of the NBA Finals between Cleveland and Golden State wraps up, Variety reported. Viewers who want to take in the entirety of the broadcast can do so on ABC’s cable-network spinoff Freeform.

Rival entertainment conglomerate NBCUniversal has picked up the rights to broadcast in Latin America on its E! Entertainment network, Variety reported. Broadcasters in China, Brazil, France, Norway and Sweden have also worked out deals to carry the concert in their respective countries, according to Variety.

Proceeds from the sold-out One Love Manchester concert — which will also features appearances by various other pop music icons such as Justin Bieber and Katy Perry — will benefit the British Red Cross’s We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
