At age fifteen Justin Bieber (sounds like beaver) is turning into a hip/hop and pop sensation. He was discovered on YouTube by Scooter Braun–Bieber’s current manager–who took him to meet and consult with Usher in Atlanta, GA, where he signed a record deal with Island Records.
Justin Bieber is from Stratford, Ontario where he learned how to sing, play the drums, piano, guitar, and trumpet.Â His mother started posting Justin’s songs on YouTube for her friends and family–never thinking that he would wind up a tween heartthrob and a friend of Usher’s.Â Before Justin’s world turned upside-down he was performing covers of Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Chris Brown–who after seeing Justin’s YouTube video of his “With You” personally called him to congratulate him.
Justin is working on his soon-to-be released album My World which holds his hit single, “One Time.”Â Justin performed Live this morning on The Today Show in front of hundreds of screaming tween girls.Â He has the innocence of Miley Cyrus, the looks of Zac Efron, and the “crush appeal” of Justin Timberlake (although Justin Timberlake has sex appeal at his age, Justin Bieber only has crush appeal ).Â The second single after “One Time” is called “One Less Lonely Girl” which is a sweet song–all of Justin’s song have a sweetness to a hip/hop beat.
At age 15 he truly is one of his kind.Â I hope he stays sweet and innocent; and keeps delivering songs that all ages can enjoy!
