Husband – Sam Tsui

Sam is of Cantonese and European descent, born 2 May 1989. He grew up with a younger brother and his future collaborator Kurt Schneider, who would be responsible for the production of his videos later on. He attended Wissahickon High School in Pennsylvania, and during his time there, developed his love for music through performing in musicals, participating in such productions as “Titanic”, “Miss Saigon”, and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”.

After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Yale University where he joined the all-male a cappella group The Duke’s Men of Yale. He completed a degree in classical Greek from the university.

During this time, he had one of his first professional experiences, working as a paid soloist for the Episcopal Church, the Trinity Church Southport, and the choirmaster there became one of his inspirations to fully pursue music as a career. In 2009, he made his first television appearance in “ABC World News”, which led to him performing in “The Bonnie Hunt Show” later in the year.

He also performed at “It’s On with Alexa Chung” before working on the YouTube show called “College Musical” which would mark his beginnings on the site.

Tsui’s YouTube Career

He released his first album In 2010, a cover featuring the music of artists such as Jason Mraz, Journey, and Michael Jackson. He then made appearances in “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, performing for each.

The following year he launched his official YouTube channel, on which he performed covers of popular songs such as “It Will Rain” by Bruno Mars and “Hold It Against Me” by Britney Spears. He worked as the behind-the-scenes host for the competition show “The Sing-Off”, and later did promotions for Yale University.

In 2013, he released his first original album – “Make It Up” – which led to a tour of the US and Canada, alongside Alex Goot.

He continues to release covers of popular music on his channel, while also collaborating with other popular YouTubers, including Echosmith, Kina Grannis, and Tessa Violet. He also teamed up with Coca-Cola to create several promotional videos for their advertising campaign of the year. One of his latest appearances is in an episode of the television show “Bones”, as a member of an a cappella group.

Personal Life

Breves met Tsui at Yale University when he was a junior, two years older than his future partner. The two met through an a cappella group in the university, and began a relationship there, but kept their relationship and Tsui’s sexuality a secret for a very long time. In 2016, he released a video coming out as gay, and just a day after the video was posted, the couple married. Since then, the two have adopted daughter Elaia together, and continued to make music together on YouTube, certainly with no plans of stopping any time soon!
