President Barack Obama has the ability to contact Justin Bieber directly! The 17-year-old pop-singing sensation has agreed to meet a young fan upon request from the White House!

Justin was contacted by the government the same day the president met with a 14-year-old Belieber whose father was one of the many lives lost during the tragic 9/11 attacks, TMZ reports.

Obama famously told the young lady he "knows Justin" and that he would be sure to arrange a meeting between the two — and the president has stayed true to his word.

Payton Wall's father Glen was an executive at Cantor Fitzgerald when the Twin Towers were attacked almost 10 years ago, and the young fan sent The Biebs a message describing how she was inspired by his documentary, Never Say Never.

"Hey! I have an awful life story and without your music I don't know if I could have survived," Payton wrote on Feb. 19, via CBS. "Do you think I could send you a letter?"

When Justin didn't respond — as it must be difficult with thousands upon thousands of letters he receives from fans — she sent a letter to the head of state, leading the president to make the call to Justin, who is currently on his World Tour.

How did Justin respond?

"Bieber was super-excited about getting the call — and told the White House he will definitely meet the girl when he returns to the U.S. and can get back to the East Coast," according to TMZ sources.
