Hurricane Sandy brought death and destruction to the New York and New Jersey area.
But one woman wouldn’t let the devastation put a damper on her Bieber fever…
Laurie Gjenashaj lost everything during the storm, but thanks to a vendor’s kindness, she was able to recover her eight tickets to Justin Bieber‘s concert at Barclays Center on Monday night (11/12).
The 37-year-old mother of two purchased the tickets when they first went on sale, but they were lost when her kitchen flooded. However, Gjenashaj was able to retain new copies of the tickets when the eBay vendor from which she bought them sympathized with her story.
“We are trying to provide as much normalcy as possible for the children,” Gjenashaj said. “I am here in donated boots.”
The family purchased the Bieber tickets with friends. They are all living together in the storm’s aftermath. But on Monday, three adults took five children to the Brooklyn show…once again proving the healing power of music. [PopCrush]
