Bieber’s talent was discovered online by Scooter Braun, a former marketing executive of So So Def Recordings who watched his video by accident but was quite impressed by the kid’s talent that he had to track him down and get permission from his mum to take him to Atlanta where he was signed by Raymond Braun Media Group a record label co-owned by Braun and Usher Raymond.
