Early Life
Jason was born in Miami, Florida on the 21st of September in 1989. His real name is Jason Desrouleaux but as he became a rising star in the music industry he changed it to Jason Derülo to make his last name easier to pronounce. Ever since the age of five he has been inspired by the art of music. At age eight he wrote his first song “Crush on You”. He was intrigued by the musical talent of Michael Jackson, Usher and Justin Timberlake. Not only was he fascinated with the musical abilities of these talented artists he was also amazed by their choreographic dance moves. Jason studied them, watched them and copied them, which is probably the main reason he's such a skilled dancer. He continued his studies in opera, theater and ballet throughout his childhood. Interesting facts

Derülo's official solo music career began in 2007 when he was discovered by music producer J. R. Rotem, who him to his record label Beluga Heights Records and Warner Bros. Records.

I believe that Jason has a really big impact on clothing style as he brings a modern-classy style to the music industry. His lne of clothing features new creative styles and has caught on to other famous artists such as Chris Brown, Taio Cruz, Usher and many more. Jason derulo has truly showed the fashion world a new theme of presenting yourself in style. Before music artists similar to jason would be seen in baggy clothing, chains, back-ward caps and so on. But now his fresh new style of fancier clothing is catching on. Not only has he affected clothing, but also he has affected his fans. Jason Derulo is a very positive role model for all of his fans. He sends out a constructive and motivational message for his supporters especially through his songs. Jason is a philanthrophist and contributes heavily charitably-wise. Throughout his clothing, message and lifestyle Jason affects in so many ways today's fashion, attitude and lifestyle. Jason Derulo is a very talented young man.
