Canadian pop sensation, singer and songwriter, Justin Bieber has been on the spotlight ever since he was discovered by former executive of So So Def Recordings and current manager, Scooter Braun at the age of 13 back in 2007.
Justin Bieber has release many records over the years, most of which were hits, including his latest single "What Do U Mean". Recently Bieber has been on front of many entertainment publications for his irresponsible behaviour and breaking the law.
In the midst of all that Justin Bieber has recently been reported to have found redemption and is now turning back to God. The spotlight on Justin’s faith has increased in the recent months, as his latest album was banned for religious symbols while he openly bashed the idea of going to church; "You don’t need to go to church to be a Christian." He told rollingstone.com "If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco."
Regarding his recent reckless behaviour, Bieber revealed it was because he felt lost. "I was in a weird place and felt it in my soul," He told CharismaNews.com . "I was so lost, and I’m like, ‘Let me try to revisit my faith.’" Bieber even attended a Hillsong Church conference earlier this year.
"Enough with the Justin Bieber Show. I want to veer away from the self-centered attitude," Bieber told CharismaNews.com . Justin Bieber also added that this was all part of his journey to turn music into inspiration.
"I’m so nervous," he tells CharismaNews.com . "It’s hard to make meaningful songs that make you want to dance because it can come off cheesy. In the past I’ve recorded songs that I didn’t like, that I wouldn’t listen to, that the label was telling me to record. I’m self-expressing with this album —I can’t skip on the moments that were dark, the moments that were happy, the ex-girlfriend stuff. It makes it real, rather than ‘Let’s call up Max Martin to write you a hit song.’ I want my music to be inspiring."
Justin Bieber has had a lot of help from Pastors Carl Lentz and Judah Smith from Hillsong Church. The 21 year old has developed a very close relationship with these Pastors. Justin also then
revealed that he just wants to live like
"I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. Not be Jesus…I don’t want that to come across weird. He created a pretty awesome template of how to love people and how to be gracious and kind."
