If You Build It, They Will Come!
What happens when 2 talented Yale students (a singer and a video director/producer) covering pop tunes go viral?
It's yet another Youtube sensation! Sam Tsui is the singer and Kurt Schneider is the producer. About a year ago, the two friends decided to tape Sam singing a number of pop tunes from Beyonce's "Halo" to Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror." There was a twist though. Kurt had the idea to have Sam appear multiple times in the video singing multiple parts (see his Michael Jackson medley, which has over 16 million hits - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R12QVtuB0_Q). Needless to say, their videos garnered a whole lot of attention especially from the media. Sam has appeared on both The Bonnie Hunt Show and Oprah. He's also been featured on Time magazine's website.
Most recently, Sam and Kurt completed their original debut song/video, "Don't Want An Ending," available on iTunes now. Check it out below - the kid can sing! Also check out his most recent cover video of Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are"...
