Justin Bieber - Gomez Raises $200,000 For Unicef With Charity Show

Justin Bieber joined stars including David Beckham and Ashley Tisdale to support his girlfriend Selena Gomez's charity concert on Friday night (20Jan12).
The 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 (09).
Gomez and her band The Scene performed for the organisation last year (11), and they took to the stage again at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on Friday to raise more cash for the fund.
Bieber was on hand to offer his partner moral support, while soccer ace Beckham took his sons to the gig and Tisdale joined her pal backstage at the show.
Gomez later took to her Facebook.com page to thank her fans for their support, and revealed the concert had raised more than $200,000 (£125,000).
In the post, she writes, "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. We're helping to save the lives of children all over the world."
