LAS VEGAS STRIP MASS SHOOTING: Latest Updates; How You Can Help

Beiber To Perform At Whitney Elementary Today

(CBS Las Vegas) Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber is performing a private concert for an east Las Vegas elementary school that’s gained publicity for services it provides for low-income families.

Bieber’s concert is set for Friday morning at Whitney Elementary School and comes after the singer pledged to donate $100,000 to the school.

The 17-year-old pop star announced the gift in October during a taping of “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” The episode aired Nov 1.

School officials told the Las Vegas Sun some of the students burst into tears of joy when they heard Bieber would stage a show for them.

Whitney Elementary was first featured on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” in September. The episode highlighted how the school provides a food pantry, clothes closet, free haircuts and literacy training for students’ families.
