Introducing Justin Bieber

90 comments

You might not know the name Justin Bieber yet but you soon will, he created a huge buzz in the US on YouTube and now he's heading here.

All it takes is one listen to the 15 year old soul-singing phenomenon to realize that he is light years ahead of his manufactured pop peers.

Justin posted dozens of homemade videos on YouTube in 2007, where he put his impeccable spin on songs from artists like Usher, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder.  He's racked up over 10,000,000 views purely from word of mouth.

"I started singing about three years ago," says the Canadian native who grew up an only child in Stratford, Ontario. "I entered a local singing competition called Stratford Idol. The other people in the competition had been taking singing lessons and had vocal coaches. I wasn't taking it too seriously at the time, I would just sing around the house. I was only 12 and I got second place."

In an effort to share his victory with his loved ones, Justin began posting his performance footage online. "I put my singing videos from the competition on YouTube so that my friends and family could watch them," he says. "But it turned out that other people liked them and they started subscribing to them. That’s how my manager found me. He saw me on YouTube and contacted my family and now I’m signed!"

Seven months after Justin started posting his videos online, Justin was flown Atlanta to meet with record bosses. As if Justin's natural singing talent wasn't enough to impress them, Justin is also a self-taught musician who plays the drums, guitar, piano and trumpet.

In October of 2008, Justin Bieber officially signed to Island Records which lead to the release of his debut album, 'My World'.

His first single, 'One Time' is due to be released here in the UK on 4th January, a week before his album release.

Justin will be in the country on a promo tour at the end of November, and supporting Taylor Swift on her UK tour dates.
