“Maybe by watching it, people will see a glimpse of his world,” Baldwin said in a trailer for the documentary released Tuesday.
Bieber said collaborating with YouTube for the series felt like a full circle was coming.
“When I started, YouTube gave me a platform and a community where I could share music, experiences and moments with my fans,” the Canadian singer said in a statement.
