On Friday, teenage pop sensation Justin Bieber played a special Christmas concert and donated $100,000 for the east Las Vegas elementary school nationally-renowned for providing its needy students and families with food, clothing, health services and the occasional rent check.
The Canadian star signed a $100,000 personal check after performing hit singles from his new Christmas album for 650 screaming students at Whitney Elementary School. To top off the private concert, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” also donated an additional $100,000 in toys — one for every child – for the holidays.
Bieber decided to step in based on the moving account of the school’s principal Sherrie Gahn when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeeneres Show.
