Social Media Star Johnny Orlando Signs Record Deal with Universal Music Canad

Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, today announced the signing of Toronto singer, songwriter and influencer Johnny Orlando.

With a combined social following of over 16 million fans and notable award nominations – most recently 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards nominee for Favorite Musical YouTube Creator and in 2017 Favorite Viral Music Artist – under his belt, Orlando is at the forefront of a new generation of Canadian musicians making a global impact.

After a sold-out 2017 North American and European co-headlining tour alongside long-time friend and collaborator Mackenzie Ziegler (the ‘Dance Moms’ alumni with a combined social following of 23 million) the duo reunite to release a new single with Universal Music Canada. “What If” is now available across all digital platforms.

“He’s just 15, but since the impressively young age of eight, Johnny has been shaping global culture and inspiring millions with his incredible musical talent,” said Jeffrey Remedios, President & CEO, Universal Music Canada. “Together, from our shared home base in Toronto, we’ll take Johnny and his music to Canadians and to the world.”
