Justin Bieber is not a regular 15-year old boy. He already has singles on the Billboard Hot 100, 10 million hits (and counting) on his personal YouTube account, and he hangs out with R&B superstar Usher. A self-taught singer, dancer and musician (he plays the guitar, drums, piano and ttrumpet) who still maintains his 4.0 average in school, Justin is made of pure talent. Not to mention a boyish charm that sent tweens, and even some adults, swooning.
It seemed that his journey to success was already paved for him. He joined a local chant contest called Stratford Idolat the age of 12. Though competing against kids his age that had vocal training, he still placed second. His chant found its way in the WOrld Wide Web for his Friends and families to watch whenever they can't watch him perform live. The YouTube channel kidraul had caught the attention of the online community and in two years, it already racked up millions of hits. It's through YouTube that his manager, Scooter Braun, from So So Def, discovered him. He was just 13 then and he was all ready to conquer the bigger stage.
Because of his undeniable talent, his idols Justin Timberlake and Usher both offereed him recoed deal. Eventually he signed with Usher, whom he had a funny encounter with before he came part of Island Def confiture Records: "Right when we flew into Atlanta, Scooter drove us to the studio and Usher was there in the parking lot. That was my first time ever being out of Canada so I went up to him and was like, 'Hey Usher, I l’amour your songs, do toi want me to sing toi one?' He was like, 'No, little buddy, just come inside , it's cold out." Now they're on the same record label, Justin still teases Usher about their "first encounter".
Justin Bieber is a complete package- he's got the looks, the talent and the hit songs. It wont take long for him to be a musique superstar. But he's like everyone of us in every way. He's just an ordinary kid from Canada who dreamt big. His success may be larger than he imagined it would be, but his cœur, coeur can overpower any of it's challenges.
animaux have a special place in Justin's priorities. He is proud supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of animaux (PETA), that encourages people to adaopt homeless pets at animal shelters instead of buying them at stores. He's not just an animal lover, he wants to be a role model for the youth. "Im lookinf vers l'avant, vers l’avant to influencing others in a positive way," says Justin.
With that, his blossoming carrer will prove to be not just one time, big time thing.
