Childhood & Early Life

Justin Drew Bieber was born on March 1, 1994, in London, Ontario, at St Joseph's Hospital. He was raised in Stratford, Ontario, by his single mother, Patricia Mallette, and his maternal grandmother, Diane. His parents never got married, but he kept in touch with his father Jeremy Jack Bieber.

At the elementary level, he attended Jeanne Sauvé Catholic School, a French-language immersion school in Stratford. In 2012, he graduated from St. Michael Catholic Secondary School with a 4.0 GPA.

As a child, he was interested in music and learned to play the piano, drums, guitar, and trumpet. In 2007, a 12-year-old Bieber secured second place against trained singers in a local singing competition in Stratford, performing Ne-Yo's 'So Sick'.

His mother initially created a YouTube account to share her son's performance with family members and friends. As his popularity grew on the channel, she continued to post more videos of him singing covers of various R&B songs.

By sheer chance, Justin Bieber's future manager, Scooter Braun, stumbled upon one of his YouTube videos while searching for another singer. He immediately flew him to Atlanta, Georgia, and arranged meetings with Usher Raymond, as well as Justin Timberlake. In 2008, he eventually signed with Raymond Braun Media Group, a joint venture between Braun and Usher.

On May 18, 2009, Bieber released his debut single 'One Time' on radio. The song peaked at No.12 on the 'Canadian Hot 100' following its release and reached No.17 on the 'Billboard Hot 100'.

His first EP, 'My World', was released on November 17, 2009, and was able to match the success of his debut single. All of his next three singles, 'One Less Lonely Girl', 'Love Me' and 'Favorite Girl', charted within the top 40 of the 'Billboard Hot 100'.

In late 2009, he appeared on television multiple times to promote his debut EP.

The album, which was officially released on March 19, 2010, reached the top ten charts in many countries, peaking at No.1 in Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

On June 23, 2010, he began his first official headlining tour, the 'My World Tour', from Hartford, Connecticut. He also released an acoustic remix album, called 'My Worlds Acoustic' in November 2010.

It became his first number-one single on the 'Billboard Hot 100' and earned him a Guinness World Record as the youngest male artist to debut at the top of that chart. The next two singles, 'Sorry' and 'Love Yourself', climbed to the peak of the same chart, making him the first artist in a decade, after Justin Timberlake, to achieve this feat.

In 2017, he was featured in the remix version of Luis Fonsi’s "Despacito." This was his first time performing in a Spanish song. He released his fifth studio album ‘Changes’ in February 2020.

The following year, he put out his sixth album ‘Justice’ which also peaked at number one on the US Billboard 200. The album featured tracks like “2 Much,” “Deserve You,” “As I Am,” and “Off My Face,” among others. That same year, he also released his second extended play ‘Freedom.’

In 2022, he kicked off his fourth concert tour named ‘Justice World Tour.’ While the tour was to end in March 2023 in Kraków, it ended prematurely on September 4, 2022, in Rio de Janeiro.

Besides music, he has also starred in films such as ‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,’ ‘Justin Bieber's Believe,’ ‘Zoolander 2,’ ‘Justin Bieber: Seasons,’ and ‘Justice World Tour.’
