Not all fans and media tracking Justin Bieber at the Coachella music festival last weekend were aware that the mega pop star led fans in worship songs as captured on video during a side event hosted by Churchome on Sunday.
Although Bieber did not headline at Coachella, his appearance led to several “side note” stories, including him dancing silly like most of us might do at an outdoor music festival and him allegedly punching a man reportedly going agro on an ex-girlfriend at a Coachella related party.
Bieber-at-Coachella micro/macro coverage aside, YouTube fan channel “Justin Bieber Videos” published what appears to be an Instagram video compilation (BELOW) of Bieber “singing Christian worship songs at Coachella Churchome event – April 15, 2018.” The description under the video states: “JB covers Reckless Love by Cory Asbury & Tremble by Mosaic MSC at Churchome / City church event in Indio, California.”
Although Christian media sites such as Relevant Magazine and CBN News published stories focused on Bieber publicly proclaiming Jesus more often these days through song, words, and social media as evidenced at Coachella, most media based their stories on the wall-to-wall fan social media coverage that normally accompanies the pop star wherever he goes. Bieber was part of the Coachella media frenzy, making many Instagram posts during the weekend festival.
In an Instagram post earlier this year, Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette, stated she is proud of her son.
She included in her post: “None of us are perfect and never will be, (so we will always need patience and grace for each other), but your genuine growing relationship with Jesus is evident in the choices you are making daily and the good ‘fruit’ you bear. I admire your character and integrity.”
I’m so proud of the amazing young man you are, and the young man you are becoming. None of us are perfect and never will be, (so we will always need patience and grace for each other), but your genuine growing relationship with Jesus is evident in the choices you are making daily and the good “fruit” you bear. I admire your character and integrity. You are maturing beautifully and wise beyond your years. You are so funny that I find myself laughing out loud when I’m alone, remembering of something you said or did. And your heart is gold. I love you to the moon and back. #lovemom . Ps. Did I mention I was proud of you? . . . . . . . #love #happyplace #paradise #vacation
