Teen pop singer Austin Mahone made his name by having his videos of his performances go viral on the internet, now he's ready to take on mainstream audiences - find out more about him in his Kidzworld Bio!

Texan Teen

Seventeen year old Austin Carter Mahone was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. His birthday is April 4th, 1996. When he was just 16 months old tragedy struck his family - his father died. Even as a kid Austin was interested in music, and eventually stopped attending high school in order to pursue his dream once his career really starting taking off.

Viral Videos

Austin first started posting videos to YouTube in 2010 with the help of his friend, Alex Constancio. He quickly began to build an online following, and was even heralded as "the next Justin Bieber." In fact, he even posted a cover of Justin's song "Mistletoe" in 2011 which could have given the Biebz a run for his money. You might call Austin an Online Wonder, he has 1.8 million fans on Facebook, 1.5 million on Twitter, and 500, 000 subscribers to his YouTube and over 90 million views. At the end of August 2012 Austin announced that he had signed a record deal, and his online fans could now see him offline and on the road after he hit the studio.

Say Somethin'

After being signed to Universal Records, Austin went to work recording his first single "11:11," which peaked on the Billboard Heatseekers charts at #19. His second single "Say Somethin" managed to capture his essence and managed to get on the pop charts and introduce him toa whole new audience. He also won a coveted spot as one of the opening acts for [kwlink 27515]Taylor Swift on her Red tour[/kwlink]! His next song is "What About Love."

Check out "Say Somethin'" below!

Artist to Watch

In 2013 MTV named Austin an official "Artist to Watch," and they were right! That year he was the opener for Taylor Swift when she toured for her album Red  and later that year had his own "Artist to Watch" tour with MTV!

In 2015 he released the single "Dirty Work."

Pssst! Did you know that Austin used to date Camila Cabello from Fifth Harmony?

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)
