As the coronavirus continues to spread throughout China, infecting more than 43,000 people globally and causing more than 1,300 deaths so far, Justin Bieber is doing what he can to support.

The crooner took to Instagram the day before his Changes album release (Feb. 13) to send love to China "as a collective humanity and have made a donation to support."

"I know it’s a very scary time in your country right now, but my prayers and support go out to you guys. You guys are amazing," Bieber says in the clip, alongside a photo of his donation confirmation to Beijing Chunmiao Children Aid Foundation.

He also shouted out Chinese entertainer Kris Wu "for the conversation," which likely inspired the singer to make this heartfelt donation. See his post below.
