A name that pops up in viewers' e-mails often is Chris Brown, a 17-year-old R&B singer whose self-titled debut album climbed to the top of the Billboard charts. His first single, "Run It," became a number one pop and R&B hit, and he was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 2007.

Fourteen-year-old Jamese Dunlap, an honor student from Chicago, wrote in about Chris. "Many times I am not rewarded for my excellence. Simple things such as having my parents pick up my honor roll report cards from school or getting congratulated and acknowledged for the 4.5 GPA would really please me," Jamese writes. "During stressful times, I think of my favorite superstar, Chris Brown. Oprah, if I could be granted the wish of meeting my favorite superstar, I would be so ecstatic."

Jamese is in for a surprise! As she sits in the cafeteria at Whitney Young High School, Chris stops by and whisks her away to watch him perform on The Oprah Winfrey Show!
