“Had a great show met some cute kids,” he posted with this sweet photo. “Thanks Akon and Usher for the love tonight.”

Akon and Usher both run foundations that work with young people, so Bieber’s new friend might have been part of a pre-show event organized by one of those groups. He didn’t specify how this cute encounter came together – but she clearly melted his heart.
