Watch Justin Bieber Perform ‘Lonely’ for Inmates During California Prison Visit

Justin Bieber and his pastor visited a California State Prison to meet with a group of prisoners involved in a seminary program and learn about the maximum-security institution’s faith-based initiatives. He also performed a set of three or four songs for the inmates, including “Lonely.”

According to TMZ, his performance ‘was emotional, empathetic and had him on the verge of tears. It was well received by the inmates and followed by a sermon.’

“It was a life-changing experience that I will never forget,” Bieber said in a statement given to Billboard. “It was such an honor listening to their stories and seeing how strong their faith is.”
