It's official: Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber will be performing in Israel on April 14, after his managers signed a contract with an Israeli production team on Sunday night.
The Canadian singer was courted by many Israeli agents, including The Peres Center for Peace, but Marcel Abraham, the talent agent recently imported Leonard Cohen, Elton John and Metallica, finally succeeded in convincing Bieber to come.
