A few months I ago, I knew nothing more of Justin Bieber than the fact that he was the newest teeny bopper out there and that he was the new protege of Usher Raymond.
I'd heard his songs, hummed along in my car, but never really thought twice about it.
Then the kid's career BLEW UP.
A couple of years ago, this kid was singing covers on YouTube. Now, he's selling out Madison Square Garden. And not just that, he did it quicker than anyone probably ever has. He set his sights on performing at MSG a year ago and just a few months ago, he did it. In 22 minutes.
How do I know all of this? I saw the movie yesterday. In 3-D. (Who knew my first 3-D movie would feature the Biebs?)
Now I'm not like one of those preteen fans crying at the mere sight of the kid, but after seeing this film, I have mad respect for the guy. This kid is ultra-talented. No, seriously. He was given a drum when he was three and just started banging on it with impeccable rhythm. Impeccable. He sings, he dances, he plays four instruments (maybe more). The guy is good at everything he does - basketball, yo-yo, music.
He's got GOD-given talent and he knows Who gave it to him.
His work ethic is something I wish every 15-year old could have. If that were the case, this world would be unrecognizable.
But not only that, he's genuine. He's humble. He's just a kid doing what he was born to do. Sitting there watching that movie last night, the passion that Justin Bieber has for what he's doing and who he is doing it for, radiated from the screen.
When you are born to do something, no one can stop you from doing it. It's all you want to do and you're not happy if you aren't do it.
Justin Beiber embodies that very sentence.
Call me a bandwagon fan. I don't care. All board. I'm taking that wagon straight to Happy Town.
