March 12 (UPI) -- A group of students at Tenino High School played Justin Bieber's song "Baby" over the loudspeakers on repeat until they raised $500 for orphans in Ghana.

They didn't play the song during classes, but they did constantly play it during passing periods and lunch. The charitable extortion worked well as the group raised nearly double their goal. Students rushed to contribute in an effort to make the music stop. Even the Beliebers couldn't take it anymore.

"Oh my God my head is about to explode right now." said one student, "I'm pretty sure I've had 5 Ibuprofen already."

The student council group that arranged the fundraiser said that since they reached their goal, they will no longer play the music. However, they do plan on continuing to raise money until they reach $1,200 which would provide food and school necessities to the orphans through April.
