Various reports say Bieber arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) at 7:10 Tuesday morning, December 10, on board a private jet.

According to ABS-CBN News, the singer held an exclusive concert in Tacloban City Central School where he sang “O Holy Night.”

Earlier, the teen heartthrob took time to promote “GiveBackPhilippines,” a campaign he initiated to raise $1 million for the benefit of Yolanda survivors.

On his official Twitter account, Justin said lucky donors will get a chance to win an exclusive studio hangout with him while having recording projects in Los Angeles next year.

“I’m doing something I’ve never done before: for just a tiny donation to the relief effort, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to hang out with me in the studio early next year and watch me record some new music. I’ll fly you and a friend over to join me in LA from wherever you are in the world. It’s gonna be awesome. Not only that, but at different donation levels you’ll receive guaranteed rewards, as well as more chances to win the grand prize,” the Biebs said. “This is something I’ve never done before, and I’m so excited to hang out with one of my Beliebers.”

Prior to visiting the country, the Canadian music artist confirmed he already raised over half-a-million dollars.
