A successful canned food drive has won students at a New York middle school a concert by teen pop sensation Justin Bieber (BEE'-bur).
Officials at Long Beach Middle School in Lido Beach say the 15-year-old Canadian singer will perform at the school sometime in February. They say the Long Island school will be locked down for the student-only concert.
The school bested 149 other New York metropolitan area schools in a November food drive by collecting more than 27,000 pounds of food.
In November, police shut down an event featuring Bieber signing copies of his debut album, "My World" at a Long Island mall. A crowd of 3,000 young girls and adults began pushing and shoving, sending five people to hospitals with minor injuries.
