The Canadian singer has a ton of fans around the globe, but his follower count got an extra push on Tuesday when #6millionbeliebers became a top trend on Twitter. Justin, being ever-so-grateful, responded with a huge thank you to his supporters:
"So let me break this down for you. This is for all the kids out there with a dream. For every person out there who gets told you cant be somebody or achieve something. For everyone who dreams of something more. I'm from a small town many have never heard of. My parents had me as teenagers. Me and my my mom lived in a small apartment.
No one in my family had really left my town or the area and i never thought leaving was possible, but then u all found me, and you all changed my life and showed me opportunity i didnt think existed. You taught me to #dreambig and #neversaynever. So thank u. I'm just like u, and I hope our story 2gether can help u all in 1 way or another the way you have all helped me. We are just getting started."
