In town for the very first time, YouTube stars Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider were in high spirits for press conference this afternoon, just a few days before their upcoming two-day concert happening at the SMX Convention Center.
The term "YouTube Sensation" has often been dished out these days but Sam and Kurt are definitely sensations in the truest form of the word. These are two very talented people that have come a long way from their humble YouTube beginnings. For a quick background info on these two, before all the international fame and attention, they've been pals since middle school and both graduated from the Ivy League college Yale University.
The two blossomed into one of the most popular cover artists on YouTube while studying at Yale. They have amassed a close to a billion views on YouTube with their collaborative covers of hits by Adele, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, most notably their Michael Jackson Medley.
By now, you know we're talking about real musical prodigies here, even Oprah and Ellen welcomed them to their studios. But the two still remain incredibly down-to-earth, when asked about their thoughts on their most memorable milestone, Sam says that "Every threshold is a new unbelievable feeling."
After years of watching them perform on smartphones, laptops and computers via YouTube, here's your chance to hearthe synth of Sam's elaborate and flamboyant vocals, coupled with the instrument genius that is Kurt for their show on the 25th and 26th of June at the SMX Convention Center.
