We had to get stuff from the food bank, so one of the charities we’re helping out is the food bank in my town. I want every one of my fans to feel like they’re helping out the world in some way. And being the one to influence them to do that, that’s something positive I can do with what God’s given me.”

Justin also recalls his first gift. “My favorite gift I ever got was my first bike, which was a red bike. It was right after I learned how to ride a two-wheeler,” he told Billboard magazine. And despite his busy schedule, the singer says he will actually spend Christmas home. “I’ll be with my family,” he says. “I make sure I take time off to be with them around Christmastime.”
