From growing up in a trivial town in Canada and very humble beginnings, Justin Bieber is the youngest hit sensation all around the world. From his musical talents to his dashing good looks, there is no doubt this 18 year-old is adored by his fans, aka Beliebers. Bieber continues to tour the country, JB JK1including Atlanta, with his new albums, Believe and Believe Acoustic. His dreams are finally coming true, and it is all because of his talent and how he started his career.

Bieber’s musical ability and journey began even before he could walk. Playing musical instruments, like the drums and guitar, and singing came naturally to him when he was just learning how to speak. He became a YouTube sensation at seven-years-old, and he soon was discovered in 2008 by Scooter Braun, who is now Bieber’s manager. It is difficult for any person trying to start his career in show business due to all the talent in the world, but being a young child is even harder. Being a kid in an enormous and difficult career was challenging for Bieber, but he never gave up. After being rejected by several artists, Usher Raymond saw the potential in the 14-year-old, and Bieber was signed by Raymond Braun Media Group. Bieber’s first seven-song album, My World, came out in November 2009, followed by his first full-length album, My World 2.0, in March 2010. They were charted as number one in America and top ten in several countries. In 2010-2011, another number one hit, “Under the Mistletoe,” came out as well as his first movie, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.  Bieber has now had six songs that have been number one on the charts and five albums as well. Additionally, he has sold 15 million albums, not including his new albums Believe and Believe Acoustic. Because of his achievements, Justin Bieber has been recognized as one of the youngest talented male singers in America, and his JB JK2awards he has received show how talented he really is.

Over the years, Bieber has won numerous awards. In 2010 and 2012, he won Artist of the Year award at the American Music Awards and was nominated for two awards at the 53rd Grammys: Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album awards. With all this recognition, Forbes Magazine called Bieber “the third most powerful celebrity in the world.” He has accomplished an enormous amount that most people do not even dream of in a lifetime, giving credit to his family, his friends, and his fan base. Bieber said in a previous tweet, “To everyone around the world, thanks for believing. I am grateful.”

Since September 2012, Bieber has been on tour for his new albums, Believe and Believe Acoustic, announcing December 10th that he was adding 30 more cities to the tour, which will now be continuing through August 2013. Not only has he been touring the United States, but he also will be touring South Africa and United Arab Emirates in May. Braun tweeted, “Hearing that the kid sold out the Stadium in South Africa in one day. Wow #BELIEVEtour.”  Bieber’s tour travels to every major city in the United States and some other countries around the world where he is cherished.

Out of all the places his tour goes to, he always makes time for Atlanta dwellers. On August 10th, he will be at Phillips Arena to end his tour. Sophomore Hannah Braxton remarked, “I am Justin Bieber’s number one fan. I love him so much! I cannot wait to see my future husband perform on stage August 10th. It will seriously be the best day of my life.” While fans flock to see Bieber in concert, they also get the opportunity to see Carly Rae Jepsen, new pop sensation who sings “Call Me Maybe,” who has been JB JK3touring as Bieber’s opening act. Sophomore Brooklynn Milone said, “I went to his concert for this tour in January at the Phillips Arena, and it was absolutely the best concert I have ever been to because of how well he connects with his fans and his songs. He makes sure that no matter what, good or bad, he will perform. Carly Rae Jepsen was a great opener as well. Her upbeat music got the audience even more excited than we already were. There is no doubt that I would go back to that day. I am also trying to get tickets for the concert in August.” Trying to get tickets to his concert for this tour is challenging, as Bieber has an abundant amount of fans who all want to get to see him in action. Of course, this is why he does it. He started this tour so his fans, no matter where they live, can see him in concert.

Do not worry Bieber fans, for Justin Bieber is young and will have plenty more tours to come. His Believe tour is one of the most anticipated events, and there is no doubt that he will be showing off his many astonishing attributes that all his fans adore during his tour. No matter where Bieber travels for his tours, people from all around the world travel far distances for a night of pure enjoyment.
