Multiplatinum recording artist Justin Bieber will be performing a benefit concert in Toronto on December 7. Proceeds from the acoustic set at the Danforth Music Hall will go to the outreach centre that helped him and his single mother when they were in need in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario. “Thank you for being there when we needed you,” he tweeted to the Stratford House of Blessing, “Now it’s my turn.” Tickets for the show went on sale through Ticketmaster today.
Last year, Bieber and his grandmother auctioned off several items through eBay, raising $64,000 for the same outreach group. Its executive director Theresa McMurray said that Justin’s label Universal Music Canada called to convey the good news about the upcoming concert. “All I could say when they called me was ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you,”‘ she said.
Justin Bieber released record setting studio album Purpose last month which includes chart-topping hit “What Do You Mean” and top 3 smashes “Sorry” and “Love Yourself”. He won an American Music Award for “Where Are You Now”, a collaboration with electronic music makers Skrillex and Diplo. In February 2016, he will appear in Hollywood feature film Zoolander 2 and in March embark on a 58-city tour of Anglo America.
