Canadian singer, songwriter and actor Justin Bieber was born in March 1994. As a teenager he taught himself to play a number of instruments and entered local singing competitions. He also began to post videos of his performances on YouTube. After seeing one of these videos, talent agent Scooter Braun offered to represent Bieber, introducing him to Usher, his future mentor. Since then, Justin Bieber has become one of the most successful musicians in the world, with global album sales of more than 13 million.
Bieber’s first single, One Time, was released in 2009. Its success was undoubtedly helped by Usher's appearance in the video and it rapidly went platinum in the US and Canada. His first album, My World, featured just seven tracks but was hugely successful, with all seven songs charting in the US. The follow up, My World 2.0, was a No.1 album in many countries around the globe including in the UK and Ireland. Towards the end of 2010, Bieber released the My Worlds Acoustic album which consisted of acoustic re-workings of nine songs from his previous albums and one new composition.
In 2011, the documentary film, Never Say Never 3D, was released, accompanied by a seven track album of remixes featuring Miley Cyrus, Usher and Kanye West. Later that year he released the Under the Mistletoe album which, again, included an appearance from Usher, in addition to The Band Perry, Busta Rhymes and Boyz II Men.
2012 saw the release of the global phenomenon Believe, a 13 track album that featured collaborations with Ludacris, Big Sean, Drake and Nicki Minaj. Believe was Bieber’s first No.1 album in the UK and Ireland. In 2013, Bieber released a second acoustic album called Believe Acoustic. Bieber is also a social media sensation, with more than 47 million Twitter followers and nearly 60 million Facebook likes.
Such was his rapid rise to prominence that Bieber’s first major tour was global, running throughout 2010-2011. His second world tour lasted for nearly 15 months and included no less than 67 venues. Justin Bieber is the first ever artist to achieve five US No.1 albums before the age of 19. He was named as the Artist of the Year at both the 2010 and 2012 American Music Awards. In 2012 Forbes magazine named him as the world’s third most powerful entertainer.
