New York: Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber will help keep a promise made by US President Barack Obama to a 9/11 victim`s daughter, of arranging a meeting with her idol.

The 14-year-old Payton Wall lost her father during the terrorist attacks in New York and Beiber will meet the young fan after Obama stepped in with a request, reported a website.

Wall is a huge fan of Bieber and had always wanted to meet him.

She had earlier sent the 17-year-old a message on Twitter writing, "Hey! I have an awful life story and without your music I couldn`t have survived. Do you think I could send
you a letter?".

She did not get a response from the star and instead wrote a letter to Obama, who met her and told her that he ‘knows Justin’ and promised to arrange a meeting with her idol.

The `Baby` hitmaker has implied that he will keep the promise and wrote on twitter "Pretty sure President Barack Obama will keep this promise."
