Justin Bieber was born on March 1, 1994, in the small town of Stratford, Ontario, Canada.
When he was little, Justin was passionate about hockey, chess, football, and, of course, music. He started playing the drums, piano, trumpet, and guitar, and when he was 12 years old, he participated in a music competition where he came in second place. His mother posted a video of this contest on YouTube so that friends and family could see it. Then she continued to upload videos of her son singing R&B covers, and Bieber became more and more popular. Thus, Scooter Braun discovered him and later became his manager. He arranged for Justin to meet Usher in Atlanta, Georgia, and after this meeting, the young artist signed a contract with Island Records.
Career beginning and breakthrough
He started his professional career on YouTube, where he was discovered by Scooter Braun, who later became his manager. Braun sent Justin to Atlanta, Georgia to consult with Usher, after which he signed with Island Records.

In less than a month after its release, the album was certified platinum in Canada, and in less than two months after its release, it was certified platinum in the US. At only 16 years old, Justin is the youngest solo artist in history to have a #1 album on the Billboard 200.
