Video: Justin Bieber sings in Stratford

I found new pho­tos and a vin­tage video of Justin Bieber in Strat­ford. He sur­prised the­atre goers there Sat­ur­day when he per­formed his hit “Baby” busker style. Bieber, seen below per­form­ing out­side the Strat­ford Festival’s Avon The­atre, appar­ently arrived in an SUV and left imme­di­ately after the impromptu performance.

The Strat­ford Fes­ti­val “had absolutely no idea he was com­ing,” said Ann Swerdfager, pub­lic­ity direc­tor for the fes­ti­val. As a young child Bieber often busked out­side the Strat­ford Fes­ti­val the­atres, until YouTube videos pro­pelled him to stardom,.

Bieber busked dur­ing the inter­mis­sion of Saturday’s per­for­mance of You’re a Good Man, Char­lie Brown. Accord­ing to the Toronto Star arti­cle: “Bieber didn’t attend the show, didn’t col­lect any money and van­ished as quickly as he showed up, after singing “Baby,” with a backup cho­rus from his sur­prised, but appre­cia­tive, fans.”

There are sev­eral videos of the per­for­mance this one has the best audio.

Here’s a video from a fan’s Face­book page.
