For Justin and Hailey Bieber’s wedding, the couple have picked their wedding singer for the big event. Like Biebs, he’s Canadian. But unlike Biebs, he’s not uber-famous so you can count out Shawn Mendes. It’s R&B singer-songwriter Daniel Caesar, who’s about to be projected into another stratosphere with this kind of gig.
According to TMZ, the Oshawa, Ontario native will be the entertainment for the night when the already-married couple celebrate their union with a second wedding in South Carolina, this time around with their family and friends there to witness it. The couple will reportedly exchange vows once more in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina, on Monday, September 30 and hopefully their big day will be exactly what they want, how they want it and attended by those most important to them. Just because they’re already married doesn’t make their second ceremony any less important.
And while we don’t know too many more details about next week’s nuptials, we do know Caesar, whose real name is Ashton Simmonds, just happens to be Hailey and Justin’s favourite singer right now. His debut album, Freudian, was released in August 2017, earned him a spot as a finalist for the 2018 Polaris Music Prize, and the album has already gone gold but now that the world know he’s adored by the Biebers, we fully expect sales of his songs to spike on the charts.
Caesar’s hit singles include “Get You,” “We Find Love,” “Blessed” and “Best Part,” for which he won a Grammy for Best R&B performance, and if those aren’t three song titles you want on your wedding day playlist, we don’t know what is.
He released his second album, Case Study 01, in June and recently performed the single “Cyanide” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

There were rumours that Justin’s “I Don’t Care” collaborator Ed Sheeran might have been asked to play the wedding but it doesn’t look like there’s anything scheduled. We’re not counting out a surprise performance from Sheeran or a slew of JB’s other famous musician friends—if they’re invited that is.
The couple haven’t shared many details about their big celebration so it looks like we’ll be waiting until Monday to see how Daniel’s performance goes down and who was the last person on the dancefloor.
