Having the good sense to record Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” before their own versions became known as classics is only one of Judy Collins’ many strong points, another being, of course, the pure spun gold of her lovely soprano. No, she was never as hip as Joni or Leonard — and her most recent album of collaborations, last year’s “Strangers Again” features some godawful pop schmaltz, but when you hear her sing a tune like “Feels Like Home,” with Jackson Browne, it’s hard not keep your heart from melting. 7:30 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, March 7-9, at Jazz Alley, 2033 Sixth Ave., Seattle; sold out (206-441-9729 or jazzalley.com).
If his smash hit album, “Purpose,” and terrific new song, “Sorry,” are any indication, Bieber has done a bit of growing up since egg-tossing and drag racing branded him as a spoiled brat pack member. The new material suggests some maturity has landed on the 21-year-old former prodigy, whose album has gone platinum and who has held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Artist 100 for seven weeks. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, at KeyArena, 305 Harrison St., Seattle; $46.50-$122 (800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com).
