Justin Bieber is trying to bring some joy to the people hurting from the Paris attacks on Nov. 13. Justin decided to move forward with his special live stream event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in order to bring ‘light and hope’ to those suffering.
Justin Bieber, 21, wants to bring some “light and hope” to those suffering in the wake of the Paris attacks on Nov. 13. Despite the terrifying events in Paris’ Bataclan theater, where a reported 127 people were killed, Justin decided to move forward with his live stream event. He’s hoping to cheer up the people who are hurting. Here’s what he said.
Justin was stunned when he got out of his first show on Friday to learn that Paris had been attacked. There were over 150 people killed, according to CNN, and at least five sites of attacks. One of those attacks was at an Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan. Clearly, Justin was affected by the event. He took to Twitter to share his love and prayers with Paris, saying, “Had a great first show but just heard about what happened in Paris. Thoughts and prayers with everyone
But then, Justin had a decision to make. All of the major cities are on high alert, fearing that similar attacks will pop up around the world. Justin has several special album release events scheduled for Nov. 13, where he’s debuting his new album Purpose. He’s also spending time talking to his fans at the huge Staples Center in Los Angeles. We imagine it’s pretty scary to play at a huge concert hall when one was just attacked, but that’s what Justin decided to do.
Knowing millions of fans were planning to tune in to the live stream of his special event, he made it his priority to give those people hurting something to take their mind off of the tragedy. Rather than cancel his show, he chose to bring “light and hope” to his fans around the world on a very dark day, and move forward with the event. What a sweet, brave move. Good for you, Justin.
