Justin Bieber Covers ‘Hotline Bling,’ ‘Let It Be’ + More at Toronto Show
You can't boil water or successfully scramble an egg in two minutes, but if you're Justin Bieber, you can sell out an entire show.
Tickets to An Evening With Justin Bieber disappeared last week just 120 seconds after the Purpose singer tweeted a link to the sale, according to Billboard. And it sounds like spots at the intimate Toronto show, which only 1,500 lucky fans could attend last night (December 7), were coveted for good reason: Between performances some of Bieber's own hits, he delivered covers of The Beatles' "Let It Be," Drake's "Hotline Bling" and Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," just to name a few.
"It’s really good to be home, first of all,” the Canadian native greeted the crowd, Billboard reported. “We’re just going to make this loose tonight. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do."
Perched behind a red piano in the video above, Bieber gently croons through "Let It Be" (after a few chords of what sounds like the Super Mario theme song...?). Once the tears have been shed, he brings the tune home with an keys-spanning jangle befitting of a hoedown.
In keeping with the holiday season, fractions of the show's sales went to the nonprofit Stratford House of Blessing, which offers food and clothing to low-income people in need. Bieber's mother once turned to the service, the site says, and the singer also worked to support the group with a Christmas show in 2011.
