Justin has been absolutely heartbroken that six-year-old Avalanna Routh — his biggest fan — lost her fight to cancer this week. But her memory lived on when Justin paid tribute to her on the first night of his ‘Believe’ tour. Click to watch the touching video.
Justin Bieber‘s September 29 concert in Glendale, Arizona was totally inspiring, and he showed his dedication to Beliebers countless times. But the most touching moment came when he celebrated his favorite fan, Avalanna ‘Mrs. Bieber’ Routh, who tragically lost her battle with cancer on September 26.
Justin, 18, dedicated the song “One Less Lonely Girl” to Avalanna, while the Jumbotron cycled through images of the courageous girl and her family.
Justin continued the dedication on Twitter that day, with a series of messages dedicating his performance to her.
“Big day today. Tonight is for my angel. #mrsbieber,” he wrote before the show.
After the concert, Justin wrote, “Goodnight Avalanna. Tonight was for u. I love u.” He then issued another tweet, attached to a GIF of the Jumbotron tribute, which simply said, “:) great night.”
When Justin first heard that Avalanna had passed, he took to Twitter to share his grief with fans.
“Just got the worst news ever. one of the greatest spirits i have ever known is gone. please pray for her family and for her,” he wrote, adding “please show respect to her and her family. say a prayer for her and for them. i miss her.”
Justin is such a loving guy — we’re so happy he was able to pay tribute to Avalanna in such a big way!
