Bieber performed “Intentions,” “Holy” and more singles from his Billboard 200 No. 1 albums Changes and Justice in front of the young students of MacArthur Park Visual and Performing Arts Elementary.
Rowland, who’s a board member and ambassador of Baby2Baby, a charity that provides children living in poverty with all the basic necessities, shared pictures from the event where she handed out school supplies and toys to children alongside Baby2Baby’s CEOs Kelly Sawyer and Norah Weinstein.
“I was so proud to join @Baby2Baby and @Amazon to welcome students back to school after a year of learning remotely,” the “Motivation” singer wrote on her Instagram, garnering praise from Tina Lawson, Kerry Washington and more. “Thank you Amazon for helping us provide backpacks filled with hygiene items, face masks, hand sanitizer and school supplies as well as food, diapers, clothing and more to ensure that children and their families have the essentials they need to stay safe while at school and at home. Follow @Baby2Baby to keep up with their amazing COVID-19 relief work!”
California Governor Gavin Newsom said during a Tuesday press conference that he expects all K-12 California schools to open in the fall and resume in-person instruction Monday-Friday after a year of remote virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Baby2Baby and Amazon’s star-studded welcome-back event comes three weeks after a survey showed parents of fewer than 1 in 3 students said they are ready to send their children back to Los Angeles school district campuses.
