There was a special feature program about Justin Bieber aired recently on E! very similar to the popular THS (True Hollywood Story) on his rise to fame and how he was actually discovered. It’s hard to believe all the troubles that Scooter Braun (now his manager) went through to get in touch with Bieber after watching his home-made video on Youtube. At one point he even called the school that Bieber went to. Well thanks (or no thanks) to Braun, Justin Bieber is now a world phenomenon!
Youtube is a great platform for aspiring musician to get wider audience to listen to their music and showcase their talent. Bieber is not the first Youtube success story. We even have our very own Zee Avi and Yuna who got signed to international labels through discovery of their videos on Youtube.
