Justin Johnes

Famous for his YouTube covers of songs by John Legend, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and other popular artists, he has accumulated over 80,000 subscribers. He is also well known for his dramatic Instagram selfies. From a young age, he knew he was unique among his friends and colleagues, but didn't realize it was his immense musical talent that made him stand out. He uploaded his first YouTube cover, "'All Around the World' and 'Beauty and a Beat' Mashup," in February of 2013. His sound is best described as alternative pop, as he pulls inspiration from major pop recording artists, as well as his deep soul. He was born in Long Island and spent his youth in Massapequa, New York. His mother Barb Johnes appears on his YouTube channel in karaoke challenges. Natalie-Tasha Thompson is featured in his whisper challenge video. He competed on the seventh season of The Voice as a member of Team Blake Shelton. [+]
