They start making videos just for fun, just because they have some message for this world, but then it turns into their profession, their calling, and their main goal. Drew Gooden is one of them. He came to YouTube from Vine about five years ago (in 2015) and since then he gained 2, 2+ million followers. But what’s his background?
His birth name is Christopher Andrew Gooden. He was delivered on October 26, 1993, in Orlando, Florida. He was a very active boy in his early years, and he liked to attract public attention. Being a great athlete at school, he played baseball in the little league. He uploaded the first video on YouTube at a tender age of 13, but that didn’t become regular. Then he registered on Vine, and that platform brought him the recognition and creative inspiration. His first Vine video was named “If you’re serious about mayonnaise”.
In 2017 Vine was closed, and that was a kind of a personal tragedy for Drew Gooden. But he found the way out – he registered on YouTube. And he is a YouTube star as of now!
His channel boasts with 240+ million of views. His most popular videos are the commented ones. He also proposes life hacks, movie reviews, and others. His great sense of humor and artistic skills help him to gain an extensive fan base.
