10 Famous Kid Singers Who Were Discovered on YouTube

Sophia Grace

Sophia Grace (and her cousin Rosie) rose to fame after a YouTube video of her rapping to Nicki Minaj's Super Bass went viral. The girls quickly became a favorite of Ellen DeGeneres, and both have starred on her talk show several times since their first appearance. In January of 2015, Sophia Grace put out her very own new rap single, called Best Friends.

Justin Bieber

As huge as he is right how, it's kind of unbelievable to think that Justin Bieber got his start on YouTube. In 2007 at just age 12, Bieber was discovered by his manager by accident when he was searching for a different artist. And the rest, as you must already know, is history. Justin Bieber is among the biggest and most successful pop stars of all time.

Shawn Mendes

Another Canadian-born pop singer, Shawn Mendes, started out by participating in singing contests on YouTube and wowing his huge fan following on the now defunct Vine app. Today, he's got several chart-topping pop hits and has almost 18 million YouTube subscribers.

Rebecca Black

In 2011, Rebecca Black and her music video Friday went viral for all the wrong reasons. Despite being recognized for having one of the worst songs and music videos ever, her viral YouTube fame actually worked in her favor. She has since started her own label, released several other music videos that are far better than Friday and joined YouTube network Maker Studios.

Soulja Boy Tell 'Em

Some of you may remember hearing Soulja Boy's hit song Crank That all over the place when it became popular in 2007. But years before that, he started out by posting his music on SoundClick, MySpace and eventually YouTube as well. After self-releasing his own album in 2007 and experiencing all the success with Crank That, Soulja Boy was able to score a record deal.

Greyson Chance

Greyson Chance is another talented kid star who was invited to be a guest on Ellen DeGeneres' show after a video of him singing and performing Lady Gaga's Paparazzi went viral on YouTube. His debut album Hold On 'Til the Night was released in 2011 followed by his second EP in 2016.

Austin Mahone

Like Justin Bieber, Austin Mahone is another young teen pop sensation who was able to use YouTube as a platform for getting his talent out there. He began uploading videos in 2010 and growing a strong following over the following couple of years, even releasing his music himself on iTunes. In 2012, he signed a recording deal and went on to open for Taylor Swift in 2013. 

Cody Simpson

Cody Simpson  an Australian singer, musician and dancer who got started filming himself covering pop songs and uploading them to YouTube. It wasn't long before he was discovered on the video sharing site by a Grammy-nominated record producer in 2010. In addition to his thriving music career, he has also appeared as a guest and actor on several TV shows. 

Jenna Rose

After uploading her own single called My Jeans on YouTube when she was just 12 years old, Jenna became one of those very rare instant stars from one viral video that amassed millions of views. She hasn't signed to any labels, but she still regularly uploads music videos to her YouTube channel. She's also appeared as an actor in several TV shows and films since My Jeans went viral in 2010.

Becky G

Becky G brings some hip-hop to the music scene, and got her start on YouTube in 2011 for posting remixed versions of popular songs with some of her own lyrics added. In the same year, she was discovered by someone in the industry and signed to a label. Since her discovery, she's worked alongside many prominent musicians including Chery Lloyd, Cody Simpson, Kesha, Pitbull and others.

    Top 10 Artists That Were Discovered on Youtube

    YouTube is nothing new, but it has impacted our generation so much that even some of the biggest stars owe their careers to it. Whether you’re dropping original singles or covers, the billions of views the site racks up monthly amounts to a pretty powerful potential audience. You really never know who could end up watching your video.

    Tori Kelly and James Bay are proof positive. The artists both made it big on YouTube, and were paired up for a special duet at the Grammys this year. These artists may be super talented, but not too long ago, they were just like anyone else fighting to make their dreams come true. Watch the humbling throwback videos below and see how far your favorite singers have come — we guarantee you’ll love them that much more!

    1. 5 Seconds of Summer

    5 Seconds of Summer developed their following organically on Facebook and Twitter, but it was their YouTube that got them signed. This led to the bromance that changed their lives: a tour with One Direction (sigh, back when there were still five members of the group). Louis even backed them up with a simple but sweet tweet.

    2. Carly Rae Jepsen

    Remember when you had “Call Me Maybe” on repeat? Apparently so did Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Carly released the song on September 2011 in Canada. A few months later Justin found it, made a lip syncing video, and tweeted it out to his fans. Aside from the song going insanely viral, Scooter Braun couldn’t resist the strong recommendation from Justin and signed Carly right away. Solid proof that all it takes is one amazing video to help launch a career.

    3. Tori Kelly

    Despite the strong criticism Tori Kelly took on American Idol, she didn’t let the negativity get her down. Instead she did her own thing, and in true YouTube fashion, began making music right in her bedroom. Her viral videos eventually reached none other than Scooter Braun. Now she’s performing at the Grammys and playing ping pong with the Biebs himself.
