Pop sensation Justin Bieber gave kids at an elementary school in Las Vegas a reason to cheer when he announced that he would hold a concert there in the holiday season.
Biber made the decision based on the moving account of the school’s principal Sherrie Gahn when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeeneres Show. Gahn stated that more than 70% of the children at Whitney Elementary School do not have permanent homes, and that she has made it her life’s work to give her students a better life.
The story inspired DeGeneres herself to give the school a generous donation of $100,000.
Bieber is scheduled to perform at Whitney in December. The playlist for the concert will include festive songs from his Christmas album Under the Mistletoe.
