Most people are well aware of how the big American dream started for the world famous teen star Justin Bieber, who started out singing songs in his bedroom and uploading them online. Well, it now seems that the next Bieber could be ready to rise from the depths of the Internet in the form of fifteen year old Austin Mahone who has already become famous in his own right.
Austin, from San Antonio, has been uploading videos of himself covering a range of well known songs, including some by the boy he is being most compared to – the Bieber – and he is proving a huge hit the world over! In fact, he has already managed to develop a loyal following with millions of fans and hits from around the world.
Mahone said: “I started making videos with my best friend Alex in June of last year.” He added: “I can remember back in June me and Alex would get like ten views a day, and we were so excited. Now in like two days I have like 80,000!”
His is another example of how the right talent and a lot of determination can make a huge difference to the lives of some people who use the internet to their advantage.
