If you were in the Sanford, Florida, area Thursday (August 5) and heard the screams of hysterical teenagers, don't fret. It was probably just the passionate yelps of students at Seminole High School, who were granted a surprise show from none other than singer and inducer of mass tween mania, Justin Bieber.
The Biebs dropped by Seminole High to present the school with a $5,000 donation from the Grammy Foundation and Best Buy to support music education. The singer strummed the guitar, pounded the drums and chatted with students, who were attending a summer band camp, according to reports.
"The students had no idea I was coming, and it was fun to completely surprise them," Bieber said in a statement. "I was excited about this opportunity to team up with Best Buy and the Grammy Foundation to raise awareness around the important cause of funding music education programs in schools. I talked to students about pursuing their passion in music and encouraging them to keep doing what they're doing."
Bieber also shared the experience with his more than 4 million Twitter followers, revealing that he battled illness to make the surprise appearance.
"I actually got sick in the middle of the show and they wanted to cancel but the show must go on and the fans gave me my second [wind]," Bieber tweeted. The singer added that the energy from his Beliebers, especially the female ones, helped get him through the performance. "Been sick all day...but we are toughing through it. SOUTH FLORIDA...the girls....Im feeling better :)"
The singer even gave a shout-out one lucky fan in particular: "So thank u to everyone for being so incredible tonight...and @meganburrier i hope we gave u a good surprise :)."
