This Independence Day, Sharon residents have more to look forward to than fireworks and fried dough.
Canadian celebrity Justin Bieber has officially confirmed his plans to perform at Sharon’s July 3rd celebration at Lake Massapoag.
“I love Justin Bieber and Big Time Rush,” said freshman Sarah Hirschorn. “I’m so excited to see them on the lake!”
Bieber is coming with his manager Scott Scooter Braun, who will act as the host of the musical program. They are arriving in Boston on July 1st and will stay with SHS student Techiya Ben David.
On July 2nd Bieber and Ben David will check out the Grandstand at the lake and then spend the day at Newport to see the mansions.
Both Sharonites and fellow celebrities alike are surprised Bieber has chosen such a small town to spend his holiday. “Oh wow — is that really Justin Bieber, the guy who has the hot stuff or that Rachel Bolton?“ tweeted Zac Efron last Tuesday.
Ashley Tisdale says she too was amazed. “Oh, my god – is Justin Bieber really coming to Sharon, Massachusetts?” she said.
Big Time Rush and Taylor Swift will play first to introduce the main act: Justin.
Bieber says the 3rd of July will be a blast. “I am looking forward to influencing others, in a positive way. My message is you can do anything, if you just put your mind to it,” he said.
The evening will end with a colorful fireworks show.
Nicole Strefling says she’s over the moon and is counting down the days. “I think it would be really cool to finally meet Justin Bieber! It’s been a huge dream of mine,” she said.
