Justin Bieber Contributes to Tenn. Flood Relief
By PopEater / Wire Services Posted Aug 13th 2010 07:07AM
Teen pop star Justin Bieber might be young, but he knows a thing or two about giving back. He brought his 'My World' tour to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena Wednesday and donated a portion of every ticket sale to Middle Tennessee flood relief. Concert promoter AEG Live matched the donation. Together with proceeds from last month's show featuring Miranda Cosgrove and Kris Allen at a smaller venue, Bieber presented a check for nearly $33,000 to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
Bieber says, "Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and you know Nashville, there's so much music history here."
Record flooding in May killed 22 people statewide and caused more than $2 billion in damage in Nashville alone.
