Justin Bieber Donates to Tennessee Flood Relief

Teen heart-throb and pop star Justin Bieber stole many hearts again on Wednesday, when he brought his My World tour to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena and donated a portion of every ticket sale to Middle Tennessee flood relief.


The concert promoter AEG Live matched the donation.


Along with the proceeds from last month's show featuring Miranda Cosgrove and Kris Allen at a smaller venue, Bieber presented a check for almost $33,000 to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.


"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," Bieber said.


The flooding in Tennessee in May killed 22 people statewide and caused more than $2 billion in damage in Nashville alone. Since then, famous artists, musicians, and actors have stepped up to provide relief and donations to the state that is home to many of them.
