    After a headline-making tour, Justin Bieber is ending his controversial concert season by doing some good.

    The 19-year-old pop star traveled to Manila on Tuesday, Dec. 10, for the final date of his Believe tour before the Canadian singer and his entourage hopped aboard a private jet to visit Tacloban City, the capital of the Philippine province of Leyte, where he met and performed an intimate concert for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

    "About to go perform the last #believetour show. The real last one and the most important one of the tour. #GiveBackPhilippines," the "Baby" crooner posted on Monday night.

    J.B. also called upon his loyal Beliebers via social media to help show their support for survivors of the tragedy, which claimed thousands of lives and caused millions of dollars of damage last month.

    He posted an Instagram pic three weeks ago which featured the performer striking a prayer pose next to one of his signature graffiti drawings which read, "Pray for the Philippines -JB". He captioned the pic, "We Can All Help," before sharing a video on Facebook page on Dec. 4, encouraging his fans to give back.

    "Everyone knows I have the best fans in the world, so the moment I heard about the tragedy a few weeks back. I knew I can count on you guys to make a difference," Bieber says in the video, directing fans to his Prizeo website to donate. Those who donate to the cause will be entered for a chance to meet and hang out with Justin in the recording studio, and Bieber also announced today that he will be adding the spray paint cans he used to make the Philippines art to the campaign if his fans create a Twitter trend.

    "If u guys make it trend I'm going to add the spray paint cans I used to make the #pray4philippines art to the #GiveBackPhilippines campaign," he wrote.
