Bieber Redeems Himself with Obama’s Help
While a critiqued the young Justin Bieber in an earlier post for reaching out to kids out in remote reaches of the world before reaching out to young Americans, the pop-star must have heard me because he has since turned his attention to helping one particular fan cope with the loss of her father.
Payton Wall had sent hundreds of letters out, to both Bieber directly as well as Hollywood executives relating the story of how Bieber’s movie “Never Say Never” extremely helped her cope with the loss of her father, who died tragically in 9/11. Finally, with no one else to turn to, Wall sent an e-mail to President Barack Obama himself. Amazingly, she not only received a response, but a direct call from the White House. Obama, moved by her story, pledged to do what he could to get Bieber to meet with her, and he backed up his word.
Bieber met with the young girl while promoting his new line of fragrances at Macy’s, a move that although wasn’t particularly out of his way, moved Wall’s whole world, as she now wants to share her own story of hardship in hopes that it will help others. So hats off to you on this one Biebs for personally inspiring a young girl and spurring her on to give back to the world in a positive way. I can’t say I’ve seen the Bieber documentary yet, but if its this moving I just might have to. I mean, what if it inspires me so much that I could even become the next Justin Bieber, helping out girls at fragrance releases in New York City? Hey, I can dream can’t I?
