Good day everyone!!!! (*⌒▽⌒*)θ～♪
Listening to music has been part of my daily activities. And I think all of us do listen to music while we are doing something like a chore, writing a blog, driving, jogging or even while buzzing here. Which I always do each time I sits in front of my computer. Listening to music has been a habit for many of us.
Right now one of my favorite artists to listen to is the American singer and songwriter Charlie Puth. I follow him on Spotify and some of his songs are in my playlist. Charlie Puth hits are "See You Again" with Wiz Khalifa, "Marvin Gaye" featuring Meghan Trainor and my favorite "One Call Away".
Let's get to know who is Charlie Puth and how he became famous.
Charlie Puth was born December 2, 1991, in Rumson, New Jersey. He is an American singer, songwriter, arranger and a record producer as well. Just like other artists who are now popular in the music industry to name a few areJustin Bieber and Arnel Pineda, he also started his career in YouTube by posting his works. YouTube had been his avenue to showcase his talent in singing.
Many of his fans taught that he shaved his right eyebrow, including me, some guys do that to have that bad boy kind of look. But the truth according to him in an interview, he had a dog bite incident when he was two years old that scarred his right eyebrow. He nearly died due to head trauma. The scar on his right eyebrow became his signature look.
According to him he was an introvert and could not even perform in front of two people. When he was in high school he started uploading videos of his songs and cover versions in YouTube and that's when he gained confidence through those thousands of people watching and appreciating his talent.
In 2013 he graduated on a full scholarship from the Berklee College of Music. He majored in music production and engineering.
He started as an independent artist, in 2010 he released Otto tunes and Ego in 2013. "These are my sexy shades" was his first song that he released as an independent artist. In 2011 together with Emily Luther they won in an online video competition, Can You Sing? It is a competition sponsored by Perez Hilton. The two performed their version of Adele's hit "Someone like you". The video went viral because of this they gained popularity and on the same year Puth and Luther signed a contract under the record label eleveneleven of Ellen DeGeneres.
