Justin Bieber Facts

Where does Justin Bieber come from?

Justin Drew Bieber was born on 1 March 1994 in Ontario, Canada. He grew up as the son of Patricia Lynn Mallette and Jeremy Jack Bieber in Stratford, but was raised by his mother alone. Justin Bieber owes his German surname to his paternal grandfather, who emigrated from Germany to Canada. Justin studied English and French at school and played in the ice hockey team. Early on Justin Bieber had many musical role models, including Aerosmith, Guns N' RosesMetallica and Michael Jackson. Since Justin's family was too poor to afford musical instruments, he taught himself how to play the drums, piano, guitar and trumpet. In 2012 he finished school with the help of a private teacher, as he was already a world star at that time and had no time to go to school.

Through his local successes and the recordings of his performances that could be followed on YouTube, as well as various cover versions that he also published on the internet, the young Justin Bieber quickly made a name for himself in his home country. In 2008, an American music manager became aware of the YouTube videos.
