Despite all the awful and downright despicable things that have been said over the past few years about Justin Bieber that have come from his bashers, music critics, and even from some of his fellow mainstream artists, Bieber has shown he can stand above all this petty mud slinging and that he will continue to follow his own inclinations and be his own man.

What is more surprising is that he managed to slip into the country unannounced and with no fanfare at all for the sole purpose of spending time with the victims of typhoon ‘Yolanda.’ And what is most amazing is that the young Canadian Pop sensation who enjoys a celebrity’s life to the hilt has the capacity for deep compassion and can step out of his comfort zone.

Justin Bieber has walked his talk !

You could see from the short clips shown in news programs how much he gave of himself–without charge–to the people of Tacloban which gave them much joy and happiness.

It would seem Bieber is well aware that basketball is the favorite sport in the Philippines by playing it with the young boys.

He spent quality time with the Leytenos, albeit briefly, with meaningful gestures of kindness to make them feel that “there is always hope !”

And what was to be beyond their wildest dreams, Justin Bieber even gave a mini concert to the great delight of the young ones lucky enough to be present there.

Indeed, “music heals !”

Justin Bieber, you have proven, without a shadow of a doubt, that you are one class act and a true humanitarian!
