David LeCours, a teenager from Massachusetts and a huge Britney Spears fan, met his idol at a meet and greet in Las Vegas last month.
When he met Spears he gave the singer a letter in which he revealed how her music saved his life when he was down, and how she helped him open up about his sexuality.
Then, to Lecours' surprise, Spears sent her bodyguard out to ask for his address so she could respond to him.
And true to her word, she sent this to him just a few days later.
I was so happy to receive your letter. I was very happy to hear about how courageous you've been about being openly gay. I've always been told as long as you know in your heart that's what matter most. I try to follow my heart and dreams every day of my life and I think that's why I am where I am today. It means so much to me to have a fan like you who takes the time to sit and write me such a touching letter. Your letter was both touching and sincere. I wish you nothing but the best in the future and hope you keep smiling.Shine Bright Always, Britney Spears
