His humble beginnings began as a YouTube music talent

It was a gloomy up-for-no-good morning in June 2010 that Austin Mahone posted his first soon-to-hit-fame YouTube video with his friend Alex Constancio. Music videos flowed in, and by January 2011, he began to build an online following of teen fans. Then,in October 2011, Mahone posted a video covering Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe.” (Some might say that did it.)

Watch the video and tell us what you think of his cover!

With over 55 million views on YouTube, Austin Mahone got signed

On August 28, 2012, Mahone announced that he had been officially signed to Chase/Universal Republic Records. He released his first single “11:11” on June 5, 2012 and his second single “Say Somethin,” soon after.

Mahone was chosen as one of the opening acts for Taylor Swift’s summer Red Tour. Later in November 2012, Mahone signed a deal to become the new “Teen Ambassador” for Lil Wayne’s fashion clothing line, Trunkfit.
