Justin Bieber wowed us Thursday with his performance on the plaza for the TODAY summer concert series. But what he did away from the main stage was even more impressive.

After pleasing the huge crowds outside, he put on a second performance for a small group of very special fans inside.

The audience was made up of young people who'd lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks — the Cantor Fitzgerald 9/11 Families — as well as kids from the Make-A-Wish foundation.

After watching him on the main stage, the group gathered backstage for a meet-and-greet opportunity with the pop star and an acoustic concert — live from the sofa in our green room!

The kids were clearly thrilled, and Bieber himself — who's made hundreds of Make-A-Wish dreams come true — appeared to be just as happy to take part in the experience.
