Turn To You: A Mother’s Day Dedication

May 11, 2012

So I think we can officially name Justin Bieber, the world’s best son. When it comes to gifts, this boy sure knows how to do it. Last month, the Biebs presented his mother, Pattie Mallette, with a song he had written for her for her birthday entitled ‘Turn To You’, *insert “awww” here*. Luckily for us, Biebs has been generous enough to share the song! Although beliebers are still collecting themselves after their fangirl frenzy due to the release of the ‘Boyfriend’ music video last week, the excitement has been completely revamped with the release of the new track.

Very much like ‘Down To Earth’, a track off of Bieber’s début album “My World”, ‘Turn To You’, is a heartfelt, and extremely personal song. ‘Turn To You’ features lyrics such as “I admire you for the strength you’ve instilled in me. You were so young when you had me Mom, you were so brave. There was nothing gonna stop or get in our way and I know you will always be there for me.” The entire song praises Pattie for her strength, and shows Bieber’s true appreciation of his mother. Just moments before the official release on iTunes Bieber tweeted, “#TurnToYou is out in some countries. Out later tonight in US and Canada. Help moms in need. Give them strength. thank u mom.” He may be an 18-year-old teenager, but he will forever remain a “mama’s boy,” and there is nothing wrong with that!

Not only is the release of the song a kind gesture, but proceeds will benefit single mothers in need of assistance at the Bethesda Center. The Bethesda Center offers accommodation, counseling and support for young single mothers, during and after pregnancy. This center is the safe haven where Justin’s mother, Pattie Mallette sought help 18 years ago, and now holds a special place in her heart. Mallette has taken to Twitter in the past month to help spread the word about the Bethesda Center, in the hopes of raising the funds necessary to keep the center open. While the proceeds from ‘Turn To You’ will aid in the rescue of The Bethesda Center, additional donations are encouraged, go to www.savebethesda.org for more information.

Justin Bieber has always been one to give back, so now is your chance! Every dollar counts! Turn to You is available for purchase now! Get it here and help save The Bethesda Center.
