Justin Bieber $100,000 Las Vegas School, Justin Bieber thrilled hundreds of underprivileged children yesterday when he performed at a private concert during a charitable visit to a Las Vegas school.
Students at low-income Whitney Elementary were ecstatic when the teen pop sensation took to the stage to sing songs from his Christmas album.
The 17-year-old’s special appearance was filmed for The Ellen DeGeneres show.
Two months ago he had pledged to donate $100,000 to the school’s 650 student body and yesterday he handed over the check.
He also treated the students, many who are homeless, to an additional $100,000 in Christmas gifts.
Superstore Target also matched Bieber’s generous pledge, donating an additional $100,000 to the struggling school.
The money will be used to support the children and their families in order to help keep the youths in school.
At the event Bieber spoke of his own family’s financial struggles growing up.
He told them about a particular incident, where his family were forced to visit a food bank.
During the concert Bieber sang acoustic versions of his Christmas tunes, and the children immediately leaped of their feet to dance along with the teenage star to his international hit, Baby.
Students at the school were overjoyed that the young star had made good on his promise.
Fourth grade student Kyendi Harris told the Huffington Post: ‘He really came for us. I’m so glad that he really came for us,’
And Kiersten Umberger, 17 said she nearly broke down in tears when she saw Bieber.
‘It was the best moment of my life,’ she said.
Another student said she would never wash her hand again after Bieber high-fived her.
