SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The star of the popular Disney Channel series "Good Luck Charlie" dropped by News 10 Friday afternoon.

Bridgit Mendler was in towntopromoteher new album, "Hello My Name Is..."

Some luckyfans and their parents got to take part in the VIP listening party co-hosted by our friends at Hot 103.

Mendler said her new album should appeal to her younger fan base even as she branches out to an older audience with tracks that stretch from pop to R&B and even rap.

"You have to know what you want to say and just stay true to yourself and the message that you want to put out," Mendler said. "I think if you put yourself out there, then if you've got something good to say, then people are going to listen."
