News

LAS VEGAS -- Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber is pledging to donate $100,000 to an east Las Vegas elementary school that's gained publicity for services it provides for low-income families.

The 17-year-old singer announced the gift for Whitney Elementary School on Monday during a taping of "The Ellen Degeneres Show." The episode is set to air Tuesday afternoon.

Bieber also said he would perform for the students in December.

Whitney Elementary was featured on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" in September. The episode highlighted how the school provides a food pantry, clothes closet, free haircuts and literacy training for students' families.

Bieber's gift matches a $100,000 donation from Target that was announced in September.
