Justin Bieber Grants Birthday Wish for Daughter of 9/11 Hero

In case you needed another reason to love Justin Bieber...

The singer granted a special birthday wish to a special young woman last month, sources tell The New York Daily News, arranging to meet Tyler Ann Zadroga prior to his appearance on The Today Show.

Tyler is the 10-year old daughter of James Zadroga, the first NYPD officer to die of respiratory disease as the result of his work at Ground Zero on 9/11.

“He made her day,” says Tyler grandmother, Linda Zadroga, told the newspaper, adding that she and her granddaughter also say in a VIP section during Justin's November 23 performance on Today and, as a result: “I’ve got Justin Bieber’s Christmas album playing all over the house.”

This act actually represents the second time Bieber has met the daughter of a 9/11 victim. In June, President Obama actually reached out to arrange a similar meeting between the artist and a young fan.


The more I read of Justin Bieber, the more likeable he becomes. This was a sweet gesture and the child will never forget the moment. I cannot imagine how awful it must be for a parent to be taken in such awful circumstances at such a young age. His (& Selena Gomez) behaviour during the paternity accusation was nothing less than dignified, too. Good luck to him - he's setting a good, selfless example to those who follow him. @ "F*** you JB" - an unnecessary and digusting comment - especially when someone has done a good thing. Why don't you put your energy into helping someone instead of taking time writing vile remarks.


Thats a nice gesture :)

I think Selena Gomez should brake up with him and date a better guy. Now for Justin he shouldn't even have a girlfriend or wife. I love Selena Gomez and her new hit " Hit the Lights". Justin Bieber you probaly should go have have fun with your other ex girlfriends and brake up with Selena Gomez!!!!! If you are reading this Justin and Selena i hope you are going to brake up the first time you see this!!!!!! Well bye-bye world!!!!

Great PR opportunity.


You make your fellow Canadians extremely proud! I hope that our brothers south of the border know how much we care and share with them. You represent us very well and we thank you for being a truly great representative!


it was really sweet of him to grant a fan's wish...We need more celebrities like him :)


Excellent gesture by the Bieb.
