Growing in popularity by the minute, Austin Mahone is one of the most well known Internet sensations. He is a pop star who became popular in much the same way Justin Bieber did - though viral videos posted on the popular video site YouTube and also Keek. Over the course of the summer in 2010, he started uploading videos on Youtube of himself and his best friend Alex, singing together. Due to his good looks and great voice, the female crowd soon followed.
Mahone made a video in which he sings Justin Bieber's song, Mistletoe. It actually received more views on YouTube than Bieber's video did. Justin Bieber has better watch that Austin Mahone isn't taking some of his fans away. It's not hard to notice that Austin does look a little like Justin Bieber, with his earrings and hairstyle with long bangs. Mahone became so popular so quickly that he was the youngest person to appear on the Billboard Social 50 chart at number 38 in Septerber 2011. He climbed up to spot number 28 in December 2.
Justin Mahone has a very large presence on social networking sites online where his fans swoon and fawn over him. He has over 588,000 followers on Twitter. He has over 350,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel and his videos have been viewed over 65 million times. His love-crazed followers are called "Mahomies." They profess their love and propose to him at his website. He also has a Keek account where he posts videos of himself doing things like playing basketball and talks to his ever-growing group of fans who propose to him on a daily basis. His Keek page has over 36,000 followers. He received one million emails in 2011. Every Friday afternoon he releases another video to the free video streaming service called USTREAM. His fans look forward to each Friday and call the site "AUSTREAM".
Because of his online popularity, Mahone was only able to attend high school very briefly.. He had to drop out because his popularity was becoming a distraction. His mother now home-schools him.
In November My SA, the home page of San Antonio, where he lived for a while, ran an article about him. His fans blew up Twitter, sending the link to the article to each other. Other media found out about it and rushed to interview him. He then became not only a YouTube sensation, but part of mainstream media was paying attention to him. He had "made it."
Two important things happened on February 14, 2012 to bring Mahone from being just a YouTube sensation to a real pop singer. He released his first single titled 11:11 and he also headlined a concert in Aurora, Illinois at the Paramount Theater.
Mahone has recorded only one original song, which is about his favorite restaurant. He can be seen singing the "Subway Song" on a YouTube video. The rest of his songs are covers of other singer's pop or Randamp;B songs.
