Childhood of Justin
Born on March 1st in the year 1994 at Statford, Ontario, Canada, Justin Bieber’s mother noticed his interest in music and encouraged him from early on. In fact, within a short span of time young Bieber had learnt musical instruments like piano, guitar and drums.
He started taking part in local competitions at the insistence of his mother, and at the age of twelve had bagged the second place in a music competition.
His mother used to record his performances and share it on YouTube, following which he developed quite a cult like fan following. As luck would have it one of his videos was seen by Scooter Braun, a record executive who was later instrumental in Bieber signing a musical contract with Usher, a media tycoon.

Bieber even teamed up with Maria Carey to reproduce one of the classics, ‘All I want for Christmas is.’ His career had hit roadblocks too when he was booked for drag racing, issues with his neighbour, and intemperate behaviour with the press.
