Up and coming performer Carson Lueders is poised to make an impact on the realm of pop music. At only fourteen years old, Lueders has already amassed a massive following of fans online and has toured America several times to perform for them in person. After a summer performing on the Pop Nation Tour (where we had an opportunity to interview him) and working on original music Carson Lueders decided to treats his fans to an acoustic cover of Justin Bieber's current single "What Do You Mean."
Earlier this summer Bieber debuted at the top of the charts with "What Do You Mean," earning his first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and making history as the youngest male with a top debut simultaneously. The Jack U assisted track signified a successful return to the top for Bieber, and Carson Lueders has decided to pay tribute with a cover of his own.
For his cover Carson Lueders is presenting a stripped back arrangement of the track. In doing away with the lush and dance friendly production in favor of an acoustic presentation, Lueders has taken the focus squarely on his powerful voice and the song's lyrics. The final result is captivating and yet another strong offering from the young musician.
In the accompanying video Carson can be seen performing the track and accompanying himself on an acoustic guitar. The young musician poses in front of a glorious sunset and in the comfort of his own home, adding a unique sense of personality and spark to the cover. Prepare to be left weak by the heartfelt performance!
It is particularly interesting to see Lueders channel Justin Bieber, as the duo have experienced a similar rise to fame after posting video content on their YouTube channels. With his pristine image and impressive vocals, Carson Lueders is almost a direct portal back in time to the early days of Justin Bieber (minus the swooping bangs). It seems as though Lueders is destined for similar greatness, and this cover proves as just more evidence!
