Justin Bieber’s Birthday and GIVEAWAY

justin bieber wall calendarMarch 1 is Justin Bieber‘s birthday! Bieber is a pop musician, dancer and actor. He is most well known for his teen heartthrob status and for his songs “One Time” and “Baby,” which is the second most viewed video on YouTube.

Bieber was born to a single mother on March 1, 1994 in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. His interest in music started at a young age when he was gifted a drum set by his mother. At the age of 12, he participated in a talent competition at his school, coming in second. Bieber and his mother began uploading videos to YouTube of him singing and performing on various musical instruments shortly after to share with his friends and family. After just a few months, his YouTube channel started gaining a considerable fan base, and Bieber attracted the attention of former marketing executive, Scooter Braun. Braun contacted Bieber’s mother, and Bieber was flown to Atlanta, Georgia to begin recording demos when he was 13.

While in Atlanta, Braun set up a meeting between Bieber and R&B recording artist, Usher. Usher was impressed by Bieber’s prodigy-like talent and signed him to Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG), and then to an Island Records recording contract. It has been reported that Justin Timberlake had also wanted to sign Bieber, but lost a bidding war against Usher. Usher made the young musician his protégé, and he released his debut extended play, My World, in 2009, which went platinum in the United States. Seven songs from his debut album charted on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the first artist to accomplish this feat. In 2010, he released his first full-length studio album, My World 2.0, featuring 10 new songs for his already large and growing fan base.

After embarking on a successful world tour, Bieber released his documentary biopic called Never Say Never, and fans flocked to see their favorite pop star on the big screen. The concert documentary earned $73 million at the box office, and featured guest appearances by fellow musicians Usher, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and more. He then recorded a number one holiday album titled Under the Mistletoe in 2011.

The pop star released his third full-length studio album Believe, featuring the hit song “Boyfriend” in 2012. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Though Bieber’s image has been somewhat tarnished throughout the years due to various public scandals, his fanbase of “Beliebers” grows daily, and it is reported that he gains 24,00o Twitter followers every day. He is currently second in Twitter followers only to Katy Perry. He has won and been nominated for a plethora of awards including Artist of the Year at the 2010 and 2012 American Music Awards, and Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album at the Grammy Awards. Forbes named him the third most powerful celebrity in 2012, and he earns an estimated $55 million per year.

Happy birthday, Justin Bieber!
