Clevver TV dug up the deets on Justin Bieber. They say he has one of the most incredible stories in show biz and I agree. His story should inspire everyone. Amazing!
Clevver TV: Justin Drew Bieber may be a huge star here in the United States, but he actually hails from Stratford, Ontario, Canada. The fifteen year old star, who’s nickname is JBiebs has one of the most incredible stories in the entertainment world.
Bieber, who is an only child, is very open about his background and the fact that he grew up below the poverty line. Although he may not have had as much as others, Justin is somewhat of a prodigy. He taught himself how to play the piano, drums, guitar and trumpet. And at age 12 years old, he entered a local singing contest in his hometown, and despite the fact that all of his competitors had tons of professional training, he still earned second place. After this initial start, he and his mom started posting his videos up on Youtube, and the rest is history.
The funny thing is that Justin wasn’t really posted the videos to attract attention from industry insiders at first-he just wanted to give his family and friends that couldn’t attend his shows the opportunity to watch him. He did covers of some of his favorites like Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, and a man that would later guide his career, Usher.
It was Scooter Braun, who is now Justin’s manager, who first discovered Bieber on youtube. After watching his videos, Braun flew Justin to Atlanta to meet with him and Usher. Justin Timberlake was also vying for the chance to sign Bieber, but in the end Usher won out.
Justin’s songs continue to top the charts, and girls across the globe just can’t enough of the single celebrity. He is rumored to have dated a few different ladies in Canada, as well as Jacque who is in the singing group Gyrls. He has also been venturing out into other things and he recently did an appearance on the show “True Jackson, VP.”
The future looks extremely bright for Justin Bieber and we will continue to cover his quickly growing career.
