Ariana Grande organised the One Love Manchester concert only two weeks after a terrorist attack at her own gig in the city. It raised almost £3m for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
Councillors unanimously accepted the 23-year old’s proposal in a new system that recognises the contributions of those not from the city.
It was discussed at a council meeting attended by some of the victim’s families.
Council leader Sir Richard Leese said Grande, "exemplified the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May - with love and courage rather than hatred and fear".
