Probably one of the most exciting parts of the event was when Usher proved his talent and kindness has no limit, as he dropped his new single 'I Cry' and announced that the proceeds from the record would be donated to charity.

Justin Bieber even thanked Justin Trudeau for getting involved with the project, so it's safe to say it was a huge success.
Long story short it was a great event and you should catch up via the stream!
