How did Scooter Braun discover Justin Bieber?
Justin is the perfect example of how anyone can become famous by posting their talents on the internet. Back in 2006, the young Canadian singer was sharing clips of his talent to YouTube. It was then that Scooter stumbled upon his home video of a cover of a Ne-Yo song and recognized his talent.
Justin was already receiving quite a bit of attention from users on the platform, with hundreds of thousands of views accumulating under each video, but it was Scooter who tapped the singer into a whole new world of possibilities. In 2007, Scooter arranged for Justin to fly out to Atlanta to meet him at Jermaine Dupri's studio.
From that session onward was history as Scooter and Justin have worked closely in the years since to deliver all of his chart-topping albums to millions of fans worldwide. One could argue that without Scooter, the world may never have known Justin in the way that they do today.
