If Justin Bieber is a SS, he came by it honest.
After this thread I looked him up on Wikipedia out of curiosity (yeah, not well versed in teenybopper music!) and had to stop at this part describing how he got his big break. Justin and his mother, Patti Mallette, had been posting videos of Justin singing on Youtube.
"While searching for videos of a different singer, Scooter Braun, a former marketing executive of So So Def, clicked on one of Bieber's 2007 videos by accident. Impressed, Braun tracked down the theater Bieber was performing in, located Bieber's school, and finally contacted Mallette. Mallette was reluctant because of Braun's Jewish religion; she remembered praying, "God, I gave him to you. You could send me a Christian man, a Christian label! ... you donít want this Jewish kid to be Justinís man, do you?Ē However, after praying with her church elders and receiving their encouragement, she permitted Braun to fly Bieber, then 13, to Atlanta, Georgia, to record demo tapes."
That's enough for me to stop reading.
