Justin Bieber began his career as a Youtube star. In late 2007 his mom began posting his videos on Youtube. He was later discovered by Scooter Braun who consulted Usher before Justin signed a deal with Island Records. Justin Timberlake was reportedly in the running to also sign the Youtube star but Island won the contract.
Bieber taught himself to play the piano, drums guitar and trumpet and is very musical. His music career has really only just begun.
Justin’s debut album My World is a look into the mind of a budding young singer. His first single One Time is about one of Justin's favorite topics: puppy love. And on another track called Down to Earth he digs deep to talk about growing up.
Justin says he wants to influence others in a positive way with the message that you can do anything if you just put your mind to it. Justin, who grew up below the poverty line, says not having as many things as his friends at school made him stronger as a person and built his character. Besides singing, he says his goals are to go to college and become a better person.
