In October, James Charles of Bethlehem was crowned Cover Girls first Cover BOY and made national news. Now, today he's hitting televisions around the world with his debut on Ellen!

James Charles posted the photo below on his Instagram account yesterday in excitement over the news.

It wasn't long ago this young man was just a high schooler in the Capital Region with the artistic creativeness that he began displaying on social media. He grew negative attention during the Super Bowl from football fans but immediately following drew thousands of positive responses defending his talent and sexuality.

He was recognized by many in the fashion industry which led to him heading to New York's Fashion Week and next thing you know Cover Girl picked him up as their first ever Cover Boy! Pretty cool to have some history made from someone right here in the Capital Region!

Today you can catch him on Ellen, locally in the Albany/Schenectady/Troy area on CBS channel 6 at 4pm!
