Pop superstar Justin Bieber has just released his new album Purpose on November 13, 2015, by Def Jam Recordings. The album was preceded by the release of the worldwide number one lead single "What Do You Mean?" and the record-breaking second single "Sorry." During a live appearance at the Purpose album's listening party Q&A, the singer prayed in front of the crowd of thousands and explained how God guides him through his career.
Bieber prays, ""God we just come to You right now and thank You so much for Your grace and Your peace God. Though there's these things that are happening that are sometimes out of our control, we trust You and we lean on You during this time," he prayed. "We just pray for Your peace and we need to put our trust in You God, in Your name we pray Amen."
The LA event at the Staples Center on Friday November 13 was called "An Evening with Justin Bieber," and for fans of his both in the arena and watching on live stream, they got a little taste of the gospel.
Judah Smith, Bieber's pastor, then took the microphone and said, "It's important for Justin to make an announcement about the senseless acts that happened in Paris and of course the tragedy in Japan."
"Justin's heart on this whole project is to bring people purpose in the midst of pain so we don't want to go any further tonight without taking a moment to pray and acknowledge that there is a lot of people in our world that are in a lot of pain," the pastor said as the crowd began to applaud.
Purpose debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 522,000 copies in its first week of release. This gave Bieber his sixth number one album in the United States following Believe Acoustic (2013).
