The 15 year old Stratford, Ontario native rocketed to fame when his homemade music videos posted on YouTube became the sensation of the internet. With such overwhelming popularity, it was only a matter of time before Justin signed a record deal – and the rest, is history!

 
While he’s touring the world and selling millions of CDs, Justin is experiencing many incredible perks of stardom. Take this walk down memory lane with Justin:
 
Artists for Haiti – Justin rubbed shoulders with Canada’s music elite including Nelly Furtado, Avril Lavigne & Drake on K’naan’s ‘Wavin’ Flag’ tune in aid of Haiti’s earthquake victims. Sales of this single were so strong that over one million dollars was donated to Haiti aid.
 
Royals/White Sox First Pitch – Good ol’ Canadian boy Justin had the chance of a lifetime to toss the ceremonial first pitch at a Chicago White Sox major league baseball game. Justin had a ball!
 
Guest on Oprah – You know you’ve made the big time when the queen of television, Oprah Winfrey, comes calling! Justin had the pleasure of being interviewed by Oprah, and in the process found himself a new fan.
 
Attending Obama’s White House Dinner – Not every celebrity gets the honour of an invite inside the White House for a meal with the President! Justin was one of the lucky few at the White House Correspondents dinner. Bet President Obama’s daughters, Malia & Sasha were thrilled to have one of their favourites at their father’s party!
 
Bungee Jumping in New Zealand – Justin had the opportunity to take a walk, or rather… jump on the wild side during his trip to New Zealand. The Bieb bravely took the leap of faith and landed without a scratch or a hair out of place.
