Dear Justin Bieber, this St. Louis Park teen really wants to meet you

Publish date:

A St. Louis Park teenager really wants to meet Justin Bieber.

Danny Ellis is a performer at Lundstrum Center for the Performing Arts in Minneapolis. And he has Bieber fever.

Ellis, who has Down syndrome, has been hoping to meet the pop singer for some time now, and his friends even created a Facebook group back in 2012 to "help the greatest kid on earth to meet his favorite person on earth."

His brothers put together a video for YouTube, hoping to help the super fan meet Bieber when he comes to Minneapolis this weekend to perform at Target Center.

The video has reached over 4,000 views since it was posted back in May – check it out below:

And his friends created the hashtag #dannyandthebieber to spread the word on social media and help make Ellis' dream come true.

There's just one problem...

Bieber will no longer do meet and greets, the singer announced on his Instagram in March, claiming the meetings left him "drained and unhappy" – and he won't take photos with fans who catch him out in public, either.

Some fans who had purchased $1,000 VIP packages to meet Bieber prior to the announcement were instead presented with a life-size cutout of Bieber.

TMZ said the real reason he won't meet fans anymore is because of a security scare with a potentially dangerous fan.

But Bieber has gone on a special date with a fan in the past, and recently broke his no-photo policy for one, so "Never Say Never."
