An Edmonton Señorita's dream of meeting Justin Timberlake became a reality Monday night.
Amanda Renneberg got to be 'That Girl' for one night, successfully becoming the envy of JT fans worldwide, after asking for the Internet's help in meeting her idol.
The 27-year-old Sherwood Park woman was diagnosed with Friedreich's Ataxia, a progressive, life-shortening, rare disorder, almost ten years ago. A social media campaign began asking for help help her meet JT.
"Thanks so much for making my dream a reality Justin Timberlake," Renneberg wrote on Facebook.

"I know meets are so rare and thank you for making me feel like one of the luckiest girls in the world!"
Fazman Patel, a local businessman, heard about Renneberg’s wish and got in touch with a personal contact on Timberlake's team, Global News reports. (Let's hope what goes around comes around for Patel!)
“He phoned me! It was so surreal to have my JT ringtone ring, and it was him,” Renneberg told Global News. “I knew the second he asked for Amanda that it was his voice. I couldn’t believe it.”
Renneberg posted photos of her special meeting with the pop star and his wife Jessice Biel. Renneberg was also given signed memorabilia and invited back to Tuesday's concert.
Timberlake is on The 20/20 Experience World Tour, making stops in Edmonton for two nights and then heading west to Vancouver.
