A small crowd of male inmates, all masked, stood on benches a few feet from Justin.

Justin was standing at the microphone, accompanied by a single acoustic guitarist, with a priest nearby.

“Everyone knows my name now, but it still feels strange,” begins the song about the trials of fame.

What if you had everything but no one to call? Maybe you know me then, ‘the former child star sings in the chorus.

During his visit to prison, he was accompanied by his wife and fellow devout Christian Hailey, who has since described the experience as a ‘life-changing day’.

A spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said TMZ that Justin has visited prison in support of religious initiatives.

Justin recently put his fans on edge by surprisingly releasing a new EP called Freedom on Easter just two weeks after the release of his album Justice.

Lonely, which wrote the pop act with Benny Blanco, was released last October as one of Justice’s singles.

Earlier this month, Justin delighted the staff and students of a downtown Los Angeles elementary school with an outdoor concert.

In a show of support, Hailey was also seen in the audience and made sure to keep her mask on while her husband was performing.

The concert was part of the Welcome Back With Baby2Baby event in collaboration with Amazon, hosted by Kelly Rowland.

As the month progressed, Justin livestreamed a 15-minute mini concert from the roof and interior of Hotel De Crillon in Paris.

Justin’s French concert venue, where he performed selections from Justice, is currently owned by a Saudi prince.
