During his recent concert in New Jersey, the 19-year-old singer was presented with an award from the Recording Industry Association of America’s Gold & Platinum Program in recognition of one of his earliest singles, “Baby,” for hitting 12 million in sales, making the 2010 tune the #1 most-certified song ever in U.S. music history.
Know what that means? Diamond status! Fans caught the beautiful moment on camera as JB’s manager, Scooter Braun, handed over the prestigious award. Scooter said to the screaming crowd, “…And through all the good times and the hard times, he has stayed positive and worked hard for all of you.”
Justin graciously accepted, saying: “First and foremost, I want to thank all my Beliebers in the audience tonight. And all my Beliebers at home, and my mom for always believing in me.”
So congratulations are in order for the “As Long As You Love Me” crooner, don’tchya think? Add your messages to the comments below, or on our Justin Bieber message board!
