Justin Bieber is earning big-time respect alongside wife Hailey Baldwin after visiting a California state prison. The “Peaches” singer and his supermodel wife last week hit up Los Angeles County’s California State Prison to meet with inmates involved in a seminary program and to educate themselves on the max-security facility’s faith-based systems. Justin, 27, appeared on wife Hailey’s Instagram over Easter weekend, with photos showing the Canadian and his 2018-married wife masked and both outside the facility and meeting its residents. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. They come as Justin largely makes music headlines, both for topping Billboarc charts with hit new track “Peaches” and releasing his “JUSTICE” album. The superstar pop face, big into his faith and known for being close to his pastor, involved pastor Judah Smith in the visit, one that included The Urban Ministry Institute.
Bieber did not just hang around for photos. He has been providing buses to ship family members of prisoners – they’ve been unable to visit during the pandemic.
Justin, seen in a tan jacket, dark pants, and a baseball cap, wore a black face mask. Hailey, in cute space buns hair and wearing a black bomber jacket and matching pants, was seen walking towards the facility hand-in-hand with Justin, with the two then seated for an outdoor session with prisoners. Taking to her caption, catwalk queen Hailey wrote:
“Had the opportunity to visit the California State Prison in Lancaster. An incredible life changing day, will never forget the amazing people we met and their incredible stories.”
Hailey added: “Thank you to everyone involved who made this possible!”
“You guys are amazing,” one fan responded. “This is amazing, thank you,” another added. Echoing his wife and via a statement, the “Sorry” singer stated: “It was a life-changing experience that I will never forget. It was such an honor listening to their stories and seeing how strong their faith is.”
Bieber is not alone in getting involved in prison reform. Reality queen Kim Kardashian has made headlines for her involvement and the freeing of formerly-incarcerated Alice Marie Johnson. More photos below.
One Community CEO Scott Budnick, responsible for inviting Bieber to the prison, stated:
“After hearing Justin’s interviews around the release of his album Justice, and knowing how faith transformed his life, I was excited to invite him to Lancaster prison to meet deeply transformed men whose lives were saved in prison by the church,” adding:
“Justin came in with an open heart and incredible spirit and was so engaged in actively listening to the stories of change and redemption.” More photos are available here.
