Born in Stratford, Ontario, Justin Bieber is a multi-talented pop/soul singer and a self-taught musician. After spotting his performances on YouTube, music manager Scooter Braun introduced Justin to the music industry and later joined forces with superstar Usher to sign thirteen-year-old Justin to a record deal with Island Def Jam Music Group.
His first album, My World, was certified platinum within three months of its release and went on to be the first debut album ever to have seven songs chart on the Billboard Top 100. His latest album, My World 2.0, debuted at #1 on the charts and has gone on to sell more than five million copies worldwide and still counting.
This #1 debut made Justin the youngest male solo artist to top the Billboard chart since Stevie Wonder in 1963.
