We have to thank Logan Paul for this one! The Why Don't We boys were put together as a band back in 2016, but the group — featuring Zach Herron, 16, Jack Avery, 18, Corbyn Besson, 19, Daniel Seavey, 18, and Jonah Marais, 19 — rose to fame after appearing in many of Logan's YouTube videos.
Now that WDW have amassed a pretty impressive social media following — their band account has over 2 million followers! — it's the perfect time to get to know each member of the band even better. First thing's first — if you're a huge WDW fan, you need to know the best way to get the band's attention if you're headed to a show.
"We love seeing cool signs in the crowd and love how creative fans get with their homemade merch!" Corbyn tells J-14. And how cute is this?! Corbyn also revealed that his mom started an adorable family ritual when she gifted him a special piece of jewelry before WDW embarked on their first tour.
"My mom actually got me a ring that she said I should wear whenever I felt homesick," Corbyn revealed. "I ended up wearing it during every show on our first tour and in every music video we've done so far! It's like a little piece of home I can take with me wherever I go."

The 16-year-old singer-songwriter is the youngest member of the band and describes himself in his IG bio as a "ping-pong enthusiast." The Dallas, Texas native has two siblings — a younger brother Ryan and a younger sister named Reese. Before WDW, Zach recorded as a solo artist. He went viral after a video of him singing Shawn Mendes' "Stitches" at school was posted online.
He's more than just a singing voice — 18-year-old Jack can also masterfully play the guitar, piano, and to top it all off, he's also a songwriter.
