    From Leon Purvis: I am from a small town of 10,000 people in New Jersey. I just want people to know dreams really do come true. I just lived my dream at that concert all you have to do is NEVER SAY NEVER!!!

    It was way back in June of 2011 when Leon Purvis first popped the question. The teen from Glassboro, NJ posted a YouTube video asking pop superstar Justin Bieber to go with him to his junior prom “not as a date” but “as a friend.”

    The video was the beginning of a tireless campaign from the now 17-year-old, in which he created a Facebook fan page, uploaded dozens of videos, gained thousands of Twitter followers and flooded the NBC10 tipline with hundreds of emails detailing his progress.

    Nearly a year and a half later, Purvis finally got a response from Bieber who met with him at his concert on Sunday and even sent him this tweet:

    @leonpurvis never say never bro. good meeting u. enjoy the show

    The excited teen talked about his experience in his latest video.

    Purvis also sent the following email to NBC10:

    I am from a small town of 10,000 people in New Jersey. I just want people to know dreams really do come true. I just lived my dream at that concert all you have to do is NEVER SAY NEVER!!!
