How Justin Bieber Got FamousPosted on Oct 21, 2010 in Featured, Viral Music Stars | View Comments
From there, Justin was discovered by his future manager, Scooter Braun, who came across one of his videos while browsing YouTube. Justin was then flown to Atlanta where he auditioned in front of Usher who signed him. His first album, My World and it’s updated version My World 2.0 has sold over 4 million copies, not including the additional eight million songs digitally downloaded.
Justin is not only scoring big in the music realm but also in merchandise sales. From t-shirts to lunch boxes to his new book, Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever, My Story, Justin is surely bringing in the big bucks. A $3 million deal with Proactive doesn’t hurt either!
All this from being discovered online!
Today, Justin is touring around the world. His current 75 city tour is said to be bringing in proceeds of $22 million. He’s not the first artist discovered online and he won’t be the last. Could you be next?
