360 Magazine: Johnny Orlando

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.

“I didn’t realize I wanted to continue and make music a career until I was a little older. I was eight years old when I started and did not really know what was going on. I remember hitting 1,000 views on my first video in a week and I was like, ‘oh my God that’s really cool!’ When I was ten or 11, I realized I loved music and wanted to pursue it as career,” Orlando said.
