Who is Corbyn Besson?
Corbyn Besson was born in Dallas, Texas USA, on 25 November 1998 – his zodiac sign is Sagittarius and he holds American nationality. Corbyn is a singer and songwriter, who is perhaps best known for being a member of the five-boy band Why Don’t We, while he is also a solo artist.
Early life and education
Corbyn spent the first couple of years of his life in Texas, then his family moved to Florida, South Dakota, Alabama and eventually to Fairfax in Virginia, where he was raised alongside his sisters Ashley and Jordan by their father, who is employed in the US Air Force, and their mother who is a housewife.
Corbyn became interested in music at a very early age, and spent most of his free time listening to various artists – he received his first guitar for his 12th birthday, and then decided to dedicate his life to creating music. He attended a local high school, and was a member of a school’s band for several months, while he was also interested in various other things such as acting, playing soccer and writing short stories.
Corbyn matriculated in 2016, and then chose to focus on his career as a musician rather than on pursuing a college degree.
Career as a singer
Corbyn, Jonah Marais, Daniel Seavey, Jack Avery and Zach Herron, formed the band Why Don’t We on 27 September 2016, after a year of practicing together. Their first single, “Taking You” was released on 7 October 2016, and their debut extended play (EP) followed a month later on 25 November. In early 2017, the boys toured around the US to promote the EP, and on 21 April 2017, their second EP came out, entitled “Something Different” – this called for their second tour, “Something Different Tour”.
The boys’ third EP was released on 2 June 2017 entitled “Why Don’t We Just”, and three months later, Why Don’t We was signed to Atlantic Records.
Just a couple of days later they released their new EP, “Invitation” followed by their fifth EP “A Why Don’t We Christmas” on 23 November 2017. The boys’ debut full-length album, “8 Letters” came out on 31 August 2018 to poor reviews, but they still decided to go on their “8 Letters Tour” in March 2019.
The band has been nominated for around 10 awards, winning two: a BreakTudo Award for International New Artist in 2018 and a Teen Choice Award for choice Music Group in 2019. The boys are currently working on their second full-length album set to be released by the end of 2020.
They have all stated that their main musical inspiration is Justin Bieber, together with Drake and Boyz 2 Men.
Corbyn has also launched his solo career, with the release of his debut single “The Only One”.
Love life and girlfriend
For over four years now, Corbyn has been in a relationship with Christina Marie Harris, who is a social media star and a beauty vlogger, perhaps best known for her Instagram account which is currently followed by nearly 500,000 people, while she has uploaded over 600 pictures, most of which feature her slim body.
The two have attended most of Corbyn’s events together, and Christina can usually be seen touring with the boys and attending nearly all of their concerts.
Corbyn hasn’t talked about any other girls he might have dated, but there are rumors circulating the internet that he was in a relationship with his high school sweetheart from 2014 to early 2015, but that they split not long before matriculation, as the girl wanted to enroll at a college in another state – other people believe that Christina is his first girlfriend.
As of October 2020, Corbyn is dating Christina, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
In 2018 just when he was about to go on a tour with Why Don’t We, Corbyn found out that he had a throat infection, had to undergo surgery, and the tour had to be postponed.

Corbyn and other four members of Why Don’t We are all physically active, and usually work out together at the gym as their physical appearance in somewhat important for their careers as musicians.
Corbyn is a supporter of the movement Black Lives Matter and could’ve been seen attending several peaceful protests around the US.
He likes to travel and has been to many US states for both work and pleasure, while he has also had an opportunity to visit several European countries, such as France and Norway.
When he has several days off, Corbyn likes to spend these in nature, surrounded be forests and wild animals, and prefers to be in the snow high up in the mountains rather than at the beach.
He is keen on watching movies, and his favorite actor and actress are Will Smith and Meryl Streep, while a few of his favorite movies are “Seven Pounds”, “I Am Legend” and “Kramer vs. Kramer”.
