NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Fans started showing up outside Bridgestone Arena three hours before the start of Justin Bieber's show. Bieber played to a sold out crowd and gave back to flood victims in Middle Tennessee.
Before the show, Bieber announced he was donating $1.06 from each ticket sold in Nashville to the Community Foundation to go toward flood relief.
“Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and Nashville,” Bieber said. “There's so much music history here.”
Concert promoter AEG Live matched the amount Bieber raised and together they handed over a check for more than $32,000.
“I think it's really sweet of him,” Bieber fan Hinako Jefferson said, “and, it was a big disaster and I think it's very, very nice of him to donate to the town.”
It's not just the teen sensation's good deeds that drew crowds.
“He's cute he's got the voice,” fan Tori Bogard said. “He's like everything.”
Mom Melissa Cason has a theory.
“It's the hair, you know, it's the hair,” she said.
