YouTube has proven to be much more than a platform where we all watch cat videos just to pass the time until that next boring thing we have to do. YouTube has been responsible for the discovery of a lot of today’s young talent. Some of them have even gone on to become insanely popular both on the platform and on other platforms. For instance, many of Justin Bieber’s devout fans are well aware of his YouTube origin story, for example. He would never have gotten where he was today if he hadn’t posted those videos of him singing.
More than that, YouTube is evolving as a platform, becoming a place where people go to consume content free of charge on demand without having to follow a set schedule like on traditional TV. As such, many YouTube stars have been able to make a living solely through their YouTube videos without even the need to get on the big screen.
While catering to the younger audience, many child stars have gotten their starts by simply taking the initiative to post their lives up for the world to see. Here are some popular young YouTube stars that have gone on to be extremely successful.

Perhaps Justin Bieber is not a child anymore, but he did find his first successes on YouTube. He is also probably the most successful star to ever rise from the platform. After posting videos of him playing music on Youtube back in 2007, Scooter Braun, former exec of So So Def Recordings, came across Bieber. He went on to introduce Bieber to Usher, and the rest (as they say) is history.
