3 Major Artists Who Got Their Start On YouTube

YouTube has impacted our generation in many ways, with one of them being the number of talented stars that we listen to on the radio daily! Some of the best musical artists around us owe their careers to the video-streaming platform. Whether you record covers or original singles, a few billion views can help you get a rather powerful fanbase and audience. You never know who might discover you!

Here are some of our favorite YouTubers who became worldwide sensations:

Justin Bieber

One of the most successful and well-known YouTuber to superstar story belongs to Justin Bieber. He was an instant hit from the moment that he was found! Justin would post videos of himself singing at shows and around his home, making covers of artists such as Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, and others from a rather young age.

He got discovered by R&B and hip-hop artist Usher, who took him in under his wing to teach him everything he knew about dancing and singing. He’s now become one of the most recognizable names and faces across the world when it comes to music.

The Weeknd

The Weeknd chose a rather unique style of uploading his videos—with a strange name for his account and a name that seemed misspelled, no one knew who The Weeknd really was. One reason for this was that none of his music videos featured his face—just some sort of interesting image. However, he definitely owes his rise to fame to YouTube, right after his own talent and hard work.

Alessia Cara

Alessia was just a girl with an average guitar and video camera, as well as an amazing voice that helped her get noticed and become a famous musician. The daughter of EP Entertainment came across her YouTube videos and helped her rise to the level of fame that she is at now. She started recording some of her first demos when she was only a high school student!
