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.
The Bellagio fountains outside the five star luxury Bellagio Resort and Casino in Las Vegas have become a world famous sight and an instantly recognizable one. The beautiful and vibrant water display has water that shoots hundreds of feet into the air and ‘dances’ to accompanying music, turning this into one of the major free attractions for visitors to Las Vegas.
Many could have been forgiven for thinking that they were looking at the stunning Bellagio fountains in a recent video that was released online, okay maybe not, but it was pretty cool. However, in actual fact the video was a group of nineteen teens who used both acrobatics and good old fashioned water pistols to recreate their own version of the fountains.
The teenagers from Tennessee saw their video of the famous fountain recreation go viral, with hundreds of thousands of hits from fascinated consumers around the world.
In the video the teens shoot water from their water pistols into the air in line with classical music, even waving the pistols to recreate the dancing effects of the Bellagio fountains. The sketch, which has become famous, was the work of US pool chemicals firm – HTH Pool Care.
