He is one of the youngest millionaire musicians in the world.

But Justin Bieber already knows how to put his superstar status to good use.

The 16-year-old pop star made an appearance on this week's episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition where he lent assistance to the crew in helping out The Brown Family in Texas who were in need of a new home.

Not only did the family have a house that is falling apart, they had a tragic story to share.

A year ago they lost their 17-year-old daughter Alexandra after she died in a car accident which was proven to have been caused by her texting while driving.

The family set up the Remember Alex Brown Foundation which highlights the dangers of texting and driving to school children across the country.

They dedicated the past year of their lives to the cause, driving the truck wreck from Alexandra's accident to schools nationwide, and now need help to rebuild their crumbling home.

Justin surprised the three family members, Jeanne, Johnny and 12-year-old Katrina, along with some of her friends, at the sound check for his concert nearby.

The family were invited to watch the rehearsal performance where Justin sang and danced before announcing to the Browns that one dollar from each ticket sold was being donated to their foundation.

He also signed their Don't Drive And Text Pledge and took photo's with Katrina.
