JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Justin Bieber does it again and makes a "Belieber" out of one very special local teenager. After help from generous First Coast News viewers, Laura Mongore got to meet Bieber face to face.
"I'm very excited," said Mongore, in the moments leading up to her meeting with Justin Bieber.

Mongore, 15, wore a heart around her neck she made while she was in the hospital. She gave it to Justin Bieber.
Her wish was to attend Bieber's concert and after a little help from our viewers she got tickets. But the Bieber fever didn't stop there.
A 'Help Laura Meet JB' hashtag spread the news and touched 14-year-old Taylor Gorham, who decided to donate her meet and greet pass to Laura.
"I feel great," said Mongore.
And it was great that along with this journey to meet Bieber, many of his fans also got to meet Laura.
So many young teens took pictures with her outside the Veterans Memorial Arena. Laura and Taylor got to attend a private VIP party before the concert.
Thousands of fans who didn't get to meet Bieber face to face, still got photos with him, well with cardboard cutout Bieber. There were fans with signs, fans with Bieber shirts, and even fans with Bieber bling.
"This is a JB necklace," said Aubrie Rowe.
Justin Bieber's next scheduled stop is Tampa, then another concert in Atlanta before his tour goes international.
