Nashville: Teen pop star Justin Bieber is proving he`s not the only one in his world.

He brought his My World tour to Nashville`s Bridgestone Arena Wednesday and donated a portion of every ticket sale to Middle Tennessee flood relief. Concert promoter AEG Live matched the donation.

Together with proceeds from last month`s show featuring Miranda Cosgrove and Kris Allen at a smaller venue, Bieber presented a check for nearly $33,000 to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

Bieber says, "Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and you know Nashville, there`s so much music history here."

Record flooding in May killed 22 people statewide and caused more than $2 billion in damage in Nashville alone.
