From winning a local singing competition and being ‘Kidrauhl’ on YouTube to being listed by Forbes as one of the ten most powerful celebrities in the world, Justin Bieber has come a long way. He has been liked by many and disliked by even more; although that hasn’t changed, he has – in every way. All those struck by the Bieber Fever have seen him transform over the years, from his first single “One Time” to his latest album “Purpose” (Let’s not forget the Calvin Klein endorsement).
No doubt Biebs gets into trouble more than a few times, but what we often forget are his philanthropic endeavors and the manner he treats his fans. Of all the times he has surprised ‘Beliebers’, let’s take a look at some of the most memorable incidents:
1. Justin Bieber meets Mrs. Bieber
In 2012, a little girl, Avalanna Routh, battling cancer in a hospital, married Justin in a staged wedding. She stood next to his portrait under a banner that read ‘Just Married’. Her ‘husband’ flew her to New York on Valentine’s Day so he could spend time with her. Cute, isn’t it?
2. A Concert for an Injured Fan
In 2013, Kate O’Neill received a tweet from her idol, just when she met with an accident. Bieber suprised his “One Less Lonely Girl” with an acoustic show. Now this is what a Belieber would consider an experience of a lifetime!
3. On “Knock Knock : Live”
As part of the Ryan Seacrest show ‘Knock Knock‘, Justin Bieber made a surprise visit to a church to visit Nikia and his son Noah, who has Down’s syndrome. Bieber said he’d like to see Noah rap like his father. The performance moved him to tears.
4. On “The Doctors”
A young girl, Kilee Brookbank, suffered third degree burns post the explosion of her Ohio house. She was invited on the show to talk about her recovery. Justin surprised her with flowers and said he admired her ‘I-can-do-this’ attitude.
5. A Holiday Surprise
On December 7, 2015, Bieber surprised his fans with a concert at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto to help an outreach center in Stratford. A jolly season, truly!
