MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Teen heartthrob Justin Bieiber has arrived in the Philippines, where he has launched a campaign to help victims of last month's killer typhoon.
Immigration officer Jerome Ollet said Bieber arrived on a special flight early Tuesday. Pictures on social media showed fans snapping pictures at Manila's airport.
In a video posted on the fund-raising platform Prizeo, Bieber asked fans to help him help victims of Typhoon Haiyan. The typhoon left nearly 6,000 dead and devastated the eastern Philippines.
He said donors get a chance to win a prize to hang out with him in a studio while he works on his upcoming album.
Bieber said "the moment I heard about the tragedy a few weeks back, I thought I can count on you guys to make a difference."
