UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING! 

At only 16-years-old, R&B/pop singer Bera has already formed his own record label, worked with super producers Rob Fusari (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears) and Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins (The Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry) -- and has more than 80,000 fans on Facebook!

Bera launched his Georgian Dream record label in 2010 and soon put together his first album -- on which he wrote all the songs. Celebuzz had a chance to talk to the young star about his debut single "Favorite Things," his unique style and how his dreams have influenced his music.

Plus, we're giving away one of his favorite things -- a $720 pair of Louis Vuitton sunglasses! See how you can enter to win below:

Can you tell us a little about how you started performing? First, I started as a rapper at the age of nine. I was just doing "freestyles" to my friends, classmates, neighbors, to everybody around me.

You have a great deal of training. What instruments do you still play regularly? I still play the piano every day. Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to practice other instruments, but sometimes I go back to violin and drums.

You’ve said that dreams are very important to you; can you explain how dreams have influenced your life? Well, I wrote my first song in a dream.

Do you write down your dreams? Have them analyzed? I don't really analyze them, but sometimes when I'm writing a song and then I'm stuck and can't move forward, the missing lines can come in my dream. It's my "secret weapon."

What type of songs are your favorite to sing/produce? I would divide my music into two parts: a more fun, club, up-tempo side; and the laid-back, loverboy romantic side, which can make you dream... Each of my favorite songs is inseparable part of myself, I don't have a specific definition of these songs, but I just gotta feel it, you know, it's like your best friend who you don't choose, one day you just realize that she or he is your best friend.

What is your favorite song of all time? That's a very tough question, but I'd say "Georgia On My Mind" by Ray Charles. It's one of the first songs which I felt in love with. At that time I was seven and it gave me a great inspiration to create.

We love the LV shades that are one of your “favorite things” and you have distinct fashion sense. How would you describe your personal style? I would describe my personal style only in 2 letters - LV! I'm just kidding, [laughs] Although, I never pick my clothes because of the brand name and high price, the price doesn't really matter, but it just has to be something special and unique.

Image isn’t everything, but it’s important. Do you put a lot of effort into it? It always comes naturally. I'm just like you, like everybody else --  when you go out you wanna look good, nothing more or less, although sometimes you have to meet some requirements for the video or for the stage.

What do you hope people take away from your music? My main message is: just be yourself, love people and let them love you for who you are... I know, I don't look like you and we're not from the same country, but I want my music to unite us... I used to say that I speak the language of love and the language of music, now I realize that these two are just one.

    Man, oh man, is this a tough one to answer. I love music so, so much, and to pick a favorite of all time is difficult; however, I'll have to go with 'I Needed It Most' by My Morning Jacket. I can feel that song each and every time in bones and soul :)

    My favorite song of all time is Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan. There are very few songs out there that are so beautifully written and with a great story. Plus one cannot deny that Bob Dylan's voice, although not exactly a "popular voice" is the perfect voice for the song.

    Right now my favorite song is Demi Lovato's Skyscraper because Demi went through things many people, if not everyone, have gone through at some point in their lives. This is a great sing for anyone of any age to listen to and learn a lesson from-in it Demi tells us their is hope and that society may crush us but we have to stay strong and believe in ourselves. Thank you so much celebuzz for this amazing giveaway I like you on facebook Emmy and I follow you on twitter @emmybear411 THANK YOU:)

    i would have to say Adeles "rolling in the deep". i can sing that all day, get out my frustration and let go of the past relationships woes. its an amazing song and she is an amazing singer! it is fairly new but it has taken over my favorite song of all time.

    My favourite song of all time is Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, the songs expression of love and the loosing of ones true love allows listeners to feel the emotions expressred by Stevie Nicks. Her wondrus voice give it that "dreamy" and lonely sensation of being lost after the one she loves decided to leave. It's one of those songs that you can listen to for hours and not get sick of it. LV sunglasses also never get old either. PICK ME!

    I have a huge U2 fan even though I was barely born when their best albums came out :( I Love the song "One" by them but seriously, almost every song of theirs is beautiful. I like artists for their talent, not just for entertainment. U2 had amazing talent, guitarist is unbelievable and their writing skills wow me. I also love the Beatles and am a huge sucker for musicals (My Fair Lady, Wicked). All of the above is what I consider to be incredible forms of art in music.
