MANILA, Philippines - Teen heartthrob Justin Bieiber has arrived in the Philippines, where he has launched a campaign to help victims of last month's killer typhoon.

Immigration officer Jerome Ollet said Bieber arrived on a special flight early Tuesday. Pictures on social media showed fans snapping pictures at Manila's airport.

In a video posted on the fundraising platform Prizeo, Bieber asked fans to help him help victims of Typhoon Haiyan. The typhoon left nearly 6,000 dead and devastated the eastern Philippines.

He said donors get a chance to win a prize to hang out with him in a studio while he works on his upcoming album.

Bieber said "the moment I heard about the tragedy a few weeks back, I thought I can count on you guys to make a difference."
