The journey of a thousand miles is said to begin with one step, and this fact could be associated with Austin Mahone. The American singer and songwriter must have imagined an incredible musical empire long before he set out to build one in 2010. He started out covering popular songs on YouTube, where he turned out to be a prodigy, then released his singles, signed to a record label, started his own label, and became a teen pop heartthrob.
He lives in the beauty of his dreams, you would agree with me no less. Here is an overview of the singer’s biography, age, net worth, and marital status.
Austin Mahone’s Bio, Age
He was born on April 4, 1996, as Austin Harris Mahone in San Antonio, Texas, the son of Michele Lee (née Demyanovich) and Charles Edgar Mahone. He was raised by his single mother after his father died 18 months after his birth. The powerhouse of music is a product of the combined pedigree, which includes English, French, German, and Slovakian.
Austin developed a passion for music as a child and began to explore the world in it. He learned to play guitar, drums, and keyboard on his own and to show the world that he has something to initiate them into, the young Austin debuted on YouTube in 2010. Mahone uploaded amusing sketches and impressive covers of popular songs and gradually began to build a fan base that has grown incredibly over the years.
He attended Lady Bird Johnson High School in San Antonio, but with increasing demand for his time and growing popularity, he left after his first year of study to be home-schooled. In return, his mother took a break from her mortgage bank job to become her son’s teacher and manager.
The singer devoted himself entirely to his cause and would soon reach his turning point. In October 2011 Mahone made a cover for Justin Bieber’s mistletoe, which put him in the spotlight where he rightly belongs.
He is also a star in social media with accounts that have millions of followers, over 10 million Instagram followers, over 9.7 million on Twitter, and over 13 million on Facebook. His fan base is called Mahomies.
After his introduction on YouTube, Austin Mahone turned away from covers and released original songs, including singles, 3 EPs, 2 mixtapes, and a studio album. He also added several more models and advertising feathers to his already decorated hat. Within a very short time, the record companies knocked on his door, and in August 2012 he signed a contract with Chase/Universal Republic Records.
On February 14, 2012, he released his first single at 11:11 a.m. on iTunes, which was followed by a whole bunch of others. These include Say You’re Just a Friend with rapper Flo Rida, followed by a piano version, Say My Name, Places, Waiting For This Love, Someone Like You, Torture, Do It Right, On Your Way, Not Far, Put It On Me, Send It, Way Up, and Creatures of the Night. The songs were released for free download from his official SoundCloud site.
In 2013 he released his debut EP “Extended Play”, but only in Japan. The other two include The Secret (2014) with the lead single Mmm Yeah and Oxygen EP (2018). His musical career also includes mixtapes, This Is Not the Album (2015), ForMe+You (2016) with the lead single Lady, and a full-length studio album, Dirty Work (2017).
Austin Mahone knows how to take Mahomie’s exciting adventures with him, whether it’s real-deal collaborations, sold-out tours, impressive music videos, or chart breaking song releases. His collaborators include Pitbull, Juicy J, 2 Chainz. His music video What About Love won the MTV Artists to Watch award from MTV in 2013. He also starred in Becky G’s song for the soundtrack to The Smurfs 2 and was later to star in her music video for Lovin’ So Hard 2015, Magik 2.0.
After meeting Taylor Swift in 2012 and debuting on the road as the opening act of their 2013 Red Tour, he has led his own sold-out tours, including the Artist to Watch the tour of MTV, Austin Mahone: Live on Tour and A Tour For Me+You.
In addition to his musical career, Austin Mahone signed a contract with Lil Wayne’s fashion clothing line Trukfit in November 2012 to become their Teen Ambassador. He has also done commercials for McDonald’s and the Mexican snack Hot Nuts. He was named digital and brand strategist for Aquafina’s FlavorSplash and has appeared at two Dolce & Gabbana fashion shows in Italy. He also became one of the faces of Macy’s American Icons campaign in May 2016 and started a campaign in 2017 in collaboration with Fossil.
In addition to the MTV “Artist to Watch 2013” award, the singer has since received a number of other prizes and awards, including an MTV VMA for Best New Artist, IHeartRadio, Radio Disney Music, Teen Choice, and The Young Hollywood Awards.
How Much is He Worth?
Hard work pays off, we know that, and Mahone is indeed receiving a fair amount for his years of authenticity, dedication, and growth. His net worth is estimated at $5 million, derived primarily from his music career, sponsorship deals, television salaries, and his presence in social media.
Is Austin Mahone Married?
The question could have been a consequence of his statement to E! in 2016 when he said he saw himself marrying his then-girlfriend in the future. Come on, that was years ago, so he is married?
Let’s talk about this girlfriend before we define her status now. She is Katya Henry (b. June 14, 1994), a fitness model and instructor he met on Instagram, with whom he has been dating since December 2015.
But after the duo had raised our hopes for a common future, things went wrong until 2017, which led to them going their separate ways.
Prior to Katya, Mahone was involved in a number of high-profile relationships, including with singers Camila Cabello and Becky G, with whom he dated for five months in 2015, and actress Stefanie Scott.
The “Mmm Yeah” singer is a charmer, and a part of it is due to his physique and body measurements. The good-looking guy stands on a height of 5′ 11″ (1.8 m) and has a proportionate body weight of 69 kg (152 lbs).
