Justin Bieber has met with the members of the the Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir.
The 22-year-old pop star was beaten to the coveted UK Christmas number one spot by the choir after he actively called on his fans to buy their record 'A Bridge Over You' instead of his own hits 'What Do You Mean', 'Sorry', and 'Love Yourself'.
Justin greeted the choir members, and subsequently told OfficialCharts.com: "I was honoured to meet everyone from the choir and I'm really happy that they got their number one."
Justin was widely praised for his selfless gesture, which included messages on his Twitter account imploring his legion of fans to support the choir's track.
Back in December, at the height of speculation regarding the Christmas number one spot, Justin tweeted: "So for 1 week it's ok not to be #1. Let's do the right thing & help them win. It's Christmas. @Choir_NHS good luck. (sic)"
Katie Rogerson, a junior doctor and choir spokesperson, said: "We are all delighted to meet Justin Bieber today, and congratulate him on his tremendous achievements. It was wonderful that Justin supported the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir.
"By doing this, he not only recognised our mental health charities and Carers UK, but also acknowledged every single member of our hardworking NHS team across the UK.
"On a personal note, it gives me a bit of street cred with my paediatric patients as Dr Katie! I'm now a Belieber in every sense of the word!"
