In 2011, an eight-year-old boy in small-town Ontario posted videos with his older sister covering pop songs on YouTube. Seven years later, that boy, Johnny Orlando has a channel with 3.4 million subscribers and 5.65 million followers on Instagram.
As a kid, Orlando was quite the athlete. He enjoyed playing hockey, soccer and wakeboarding at the lake near his hometown. He always loved music but would not have described himself as a musical kid. He developed a love for music by listening to his father’s old mixtapes.
