‘God is good’ – Justin Bieber

Pop sensation Justin Bieber wore his faith on his sleeve at the One Love Manchester benefit concert on Sunday, when he told the crowd to remember that God is good in the midst of the darkness and evil.

Numerous musicians, including Ariana Grande, performed for free at the concert in Old Trafford, which raised funds for the Red Cross’ Manchester Emergency Fund to help victims and families impacted by the suicide bomber who targeted an Ariana Grande concert in the city last month.


Justin Bieber, whose Christian faith has been on display in recent months, offered a message of resilience at the event, which had already been scheduled before the latest London Bridge attack.

“I’m not going to let go of hope. I’m not going to let go of love. I’m not going to let go of God,” the singer told the crowd. “Put your hands up if you’re not going to let go.”


The 23-year-old went on to say: “God is good in the midst of the darkness. God is good in the midst of the evil. God is in the midst no matter what’s happening in the world, God is in the midst, and he loves you and he’s here for you.”

His voice cracking, he said he wanted to “honour the people who were taken”, asking the crowd to put up their hands and chant “we honour you and we love you”.
