Each of them received four Gold tickets for Justin Bieber’s My World Tour. The top six scorers had the chance to be up-close and personal with Justin Bieber in a special Meet and Greet session.
At the Meet and Greet session, six Beliebers were finally living a dream. Shannon was ecstatic to meet her role model. “He tells us to dream big, never say never, and to chase our dreams because everything is reachable,” she said.
“It was an amazing experience and a once in a lifetime opportunity,“ said Ivan. “The fact that I was given that chance because of my singing, which I’m passionate about, that means a lot.”
For the top winners, meeting their idol was very humbling. “Justin is very warm and friendly to his fans,” said Danielle. Her sister Emmanuelle adds, “He was so kind and accommodating.”
“He was appreciative to the little girls who gave him letters and gifts… I’ve heard that he cares about his fans, but only after witnessing it did I fully believe,” she said.
Like a true fangirl, Glycel gushed about their encounter. “His hands are so soft,” she said. “I got a chance to hug him so I smelled him. He smells like vanilla!”
For Cathleen, it was the perfect moment to express her admiration. “When we’re all ready for the picture-taking, I suddenly felt his arms on my shoulders… I don’t know what to do so I just held his back. Before leaving, he looked me eye-to-eye so I got the chance to tell him, ‘I love you, Justin!’”
It was a day of happiness and good vibes for the Bieber Fever promo winners. “I was so excited because I was finally going to meet him,” said Jerome. “I never expected it will happen but thanks to all of you, you made my wish come true.”
Widely known for his biggest hit “Baby”, Justin Bieber is a global superstar with his first album “My World 2.0” debuting at number one on the US Billboard album charts.
