Beliebers unite to make a single for the generous pop star
Yes, Justin Bieber is loved for his dreamy vocals and adorable baby face that make girls, and even grown women, go weak at the knees, but he is also admired for giving back. In honor of his charitable work, the pop star’s fans have recruited the non-profit organization Together We Rise and the company Brush Buddies to prepare a charity single for his birthday this March.
The President/CEO of Together We Rise, the non-profit that aids foster children nationwide, explained to MTV how a single fan got the ball rolling on this project. “It started with a young lady named Vivian, she runs the Justin Crew fan club and she approached it on Twitter. She approached it and she had a lot of fan support," he said.
Together We Rise received a great deal of recognition after the singer promoted the organization to his enormous fan base via Twitter. “Justin Bieber inspired a lot of young people to give back. It's a 'thank you' for helping us and we want to give back in your honor," the CEO said.
The single will feature videos from fans expressing their gratitude towards Bieber. He has inspired so many young girls and boys to be socially conscious, go after their dreams, and “Never Say Never”.
Even if you are not a Belieber, you can’t deny that this 18-year-old has a heart of gold and strong morals. Bieber founded the Believe charity drive that received part of the proceeds from his Under the Mistletoe album released this past November. He encouraged his fans to get into the holiday spirit by donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Pencils of Promise, Musicians on Call, Project Medishare for Haiti, City of Hope, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Grammy Foundation.
The Canadian created a media frenzy last week when he helped a young fan awaiting a lung transplant spread the importance of becoming an organ and blood donor. He tweeted, “i got the word....you have amazing strength. i got u. #BeAnOrganDonor."
According to MTV, Bieber increased donations to Ontario’s Trillium Gift of Life Network by 1,200 people by simply typing less than 140 characters on the social media site.
Proceeds from this fan-created song will be given to the heartthrob’s Believe charity drive. When celebrating the teen sensation’s birthday this March, also take the time to celebrate his remarkable charitable efforts by listening to this upcoming single!
