Pop singer Selena Gomez, accompanied by boyfriend Justi Bieber and football star David Beckham, raised USD 200,000 with a charity concert for Unicef.
The 19-year-old teenage star joined forces with the United Nations children's Fund (Unicef) in 2008, speaking out on issues such as children's rights, and she became an official representative of the charitable cause the following year.
Gomez and her band The Scene performed for the organisation last year, and they took to the stage again to raise more cash for the fund, reporeted Femalefirst online. Bieber was on hand to offer his partner moral support, while soccer ace Beckham took his sons to the gig.
Gomez later took to her Facebook to thank her fans for their support.
"Thank You to all who came out to the show last night at House of Blues on Sunset. That is one of the shows I look forward to the most and cannot wait for next year's show. I don't have an exact number but together we all raised over 200,000 dollars to benefit Unicef," she posted.
"We're helping to save the lives of children allover the world," she added.
