Meet Lexie Marshall: Justin Bieber's biggest fan

Posted: Updated:

Lexie Marshall is your typical 9-year-old girl.

She likes dancing and boys -- but one boy in particular. Lexie is obsessed with Justin Bieber.

"Since when I was about 7 or 6, I start hearing his music. It was pretty great," Lexie says.

But for Lexie, Justin isn't her future boyfriend, he's her inspiration.

Lexie, who is deaf, uses cochlear implants to help her hear.

At first, she didn't want to use them.

"Sometimes I just take them off," Lexie says.

"She'd look at me and she'd say, 'I don't want to hear you," says Lexie's mom, Alicia Marshall.

"We will crank up our little CD player and the kids would dance around the house, and Lexie will say what was that word? Sign it," Alicia said.

But Bieber's music changed Lexie.

"I'd say, 'Listen to this,' and she'd hear the bass and start dancing," Alicia said.

"She'd say, 'Why does my voice sound a little different? And I'd say, 'To me, your voice is beautiful. Your voice doesn't sound different."

Then Lexie asked her mom if she could be a singer.

Alicia told her, "You can be anything you want to be."

Lexie told her mom she wanted to meet Justin Bieber so she could tell him what song she was going to sing about him.

When the Marshall family found out Bieber was coming to the Amway Center, the family was determined to find a way to take Lexie. Unfortunately, that dream was destroyed when thieves broke into the family's Sanford restaurant two weeks ago and stole hundreds in cash.

Recently, an Orlando-area radio station heard about Lexie. On Good Day Orlando on Friday, Power 95.3 presented Lexie with floor seats to Justin Bieber's concert at the Amway Center.

"I can't believe it," Alicia said. "I'm going to cry."
