'Drake & Josh' Star Drake Bell Makes Fresno Fan's Dream Come True

Singer/actor Drake Bell, a former Nickelodeon star, was the first crush for a lot of teenage girls who grew up in the early to mid 2000s. And on Wednesday, January 10, he made one longtime Fresno fan’s childhood dream come true!

Bell, who starred in the popular Nickelodeon comedies The Amanda Show and Drake & Josh, sang his iconic Drake & Josh theme song "Found a Way" with Fresno, California fan Jennifer Cueva during a meet and greet Wednesday afternoon at Heroes Comics a few hours prior to his concert at Fulton 55!

Singer/actor Drake Bell made a longtime Fresno fan's day when he sang a chorus to one of his songs with her Wednesday afternoon. Bell and the fan, Jennifer Cueva, sang together at a meet and greet at Heroes Comics held prior to his concert at Fulton 55. Bell, best known for his time on the Nickelodeon show "Drake & Josh," has more than 3 million followers on Twitter, 2 million on Instagram and almost 8 million on Facebook.

“It was surreal,” fan Jennifer Cueva said. “I’ve always wanted to meet him. He was my childhood crush and I was in shock after finally meeting him.

“I practically waited 14 years for this. He actually didn’t want to sing, but I got my way because I couldn’t go to the concert and he told me he would only sing with me if I would sing, too.”

Bell, 31, is very popular on social media, with almost 8 million on Facebook, 3 million on Twitter and 2 million on Instagram.

He sings pop rock music, was the voice of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man on Disney XD and appeared on ABC’s reality TV series Splash. In 2015, he reunited with his former Drake & Josh co-star Josh Peck on the 2015 FOX sitcom Grandfathered.

Bell appeared to enjoy his time in Fresno, interacting with fans and performing later into the night.
