Getting the title of U.K. Christmas number one song is a big friggin' deal but for Justin Bieber the Christmas season is more about giving than receiving. To show he's actually a really good guy deep down, the Canadian superstar has asked his 71.9 million Twitter followers to support a South London hospital choir in their bid to get to number one track in the U.K.

Bieber, who currently holds the number one spot with his single "Love Yourself" has another two songs in The Official UK Top 40 anyway. He tweeted his support for the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir and their single, "A Bridge Over You". Right before Justin went to Twitter Wednesday, the choir was just 662 sales behind him. Wait, was he afraid he'd lose? #Anyway.
So why did JB talk up this song? Proceeds from sales of the choir's track will be donated to charities including Carers UK, which supports people who care for loved ones, and mental-health charity Mind.

The Christmas top spot has been occupied almost permanently by talent-show winners in recent years, such as X Factor winners Sam Bailey and Ben Haenow grabbing the title in 2013 and 2014 respectively. The position has also gone to less likely acts, however, with rock band Rage Against the Machine winning the race in 2009 after a Facebook campaign designed to prevent another X-Factor winner from taking over.

The choir expressed their thanks to Bieber for his support and invited him to take part in an unlikely duet the next time he visits the U.K.
