A small audience of male prisoners, all of whom were masked, were arranged on benches several feet from Justin.

Justin was standing at the microphone accompanied by a single acoustic guitar player, with a priest seen sitting nearby.

‘Everybody knows my name now but somethin’ ’bout it still feels strange,’ begins the song which is about the travails of fame.

‘What if you had it all but nobody to call? Maybe then you’d know me,’ the former child star sings in the chorus.
