    Justin Bieber Flyntetonline.com

    Justin Bieber is making Nashville residents smile.

    The cutest pop star on the planet swung through Music City on Wednesday for a sold-out concert at the Bridgestone Arena for his My World tour and ended up donating a percentage of his ticket sales to flood relief.

    Leave it to Bieber to make things better.

    "We gave $1.06 per ticket sold 2nite to Flood Relief needed here in Tennessee. thanks 2 all of u 2nite we raised $32,690 for those in need!!!" tweeted the "Baby" singer.

    Bieber also gave a "shoutout" to local radio station i106 Hits, which teamed up with his camp to help make the gift happen.

    All proceeds went to the nonprofit group Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to help support recovery efforts and restoration of areas affected by the devastating floods that hit Nashville in May, killing 22 people and causing more than $2 billion in damage to the city, including the historic Grand Ole Opry House.

    "I'm really glad to be here and to help out something that's really important to me," the Tennessean quoted the Canadian pop sensation as saying. "Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and you know Nashville, there's so much music history here."

    Concert promoter AEG Live has agreed to match the donation.
