Without a doubt, Justin Bieber has had one quick and extremely successful rise to fame. Sure, he’s stumbled along the way, but the “Love Yourself” singer has proved through it all that his talent is a force to be reckoned with — now that talent is about to be honored in a major way.
Justin is getting his own museum exhibit in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario in Canada. Yup, Belibers who live near the area or want to travel up to see where the “Cold Water” singer got his start will soon be able to see tons of his personal items, awards and other memorabilia in the Stratford Perth Museum, with their very own eyes.
Before fans start wondering whether or not Justin has approved this whole thing, they’ll be relived to know that he has. The singer and his family decided to donate all of the items that will be displayed after the museum’s staff reached out to his grandparents, Diane and Bruce Dale. There will be between 50 to 75 items total, which will include Justin’s personal letters, photographs, Grammy, Emmy and Teen Choice awards, and the platinum record for his debut album, My World.
John Kastner, general manager of the Stratford Perth Museum revealed in an interview that the “Company” singer was really thankful about the museum wanting to honor his success. He said, “We had a very brief conversation with him here, and he was very appreciative – couldn’t have been nicer, and just expressed how much he appreciated the fact that the museum was doing an exhibit.”
The exhibit will be called "Steps to Stardom" and the name pays tribute to the early days of Justin’s career, which began with him outside the steps of Stratford’s Avon Theatre and performing for those who would pass by. Fans will be able to see the exhibit when it officially opens on Feb. 18.
