Justin Bieber Wows Fans With Acoustic Set In Toronto
Justin Bieber: Consider yourself redeemed.
The 21-year-old crooner pulled out all the stops for his sold-out charity show at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall on Monday, with all the benefits going towards a Stratford, Ont. food bank his mother once used.
Dressed down in ripped jeans, a hoodie and a toque (he is Canadian, after all), Justin thrilled audiences (at home and online, as the show was being live-streamed via his website) with an intimate acoustic set that included hits, as well as some very welcome surprises.
"I think this is the best crowd I've ever been a part of," he told more than 1,500 screaming fans. "I'm having a great time up here tonight."
Besides singing pared-down versions of "Baby," "Girlfriend," "Sorry," and "What Do You Mean," Justin sat down at the piano to perform a beautiful rendition of the Beatles' "Let It Be" and even covered Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car."
"I feel like we should speed it up a bit," he said, before breaking into an acoustic version of Drake's "Hotline Bling," which featured new (and dare we say, Selena inspired?) lyrics.
The singer was humble, endearing and impressive. He warmly hugged an overwhelmed "lonely girl" fan and proceeded to serenade her. He had an adorable chat on stage with his six-year-old brother, Jaxon.
He sang acapella for several minutes at a time, proving that the pop star does, indeed, have a set of pipes on him.
Bieber could do no wrong last night and he's got nothing left to be sorry about.
