Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider

I didn't know that Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider are the people behind the medleys I've been downloading few years back. They have been known for fast covers and medleys of new songs.  As duo, they have touched thousands of people through their collaborative covers of hits by Adele, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry. They're also known for their creative mash-ups and medleys; most notably the Michael Jackson Medley which upto now is in my iPod shuffle. 

Good news to those who have been listening to their music and covers. They are coming to Manila for a concert on June 25-26 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

Sam has been hailed as an internet singing sensation, who along with his production partner Kurt was among the first musicians to establish a hugely popular music-focused channel on Youtube. To date, his videos have amassed over 500 million hits on Youtube alone, with each new release, including his 2013 debut original album “Make It Up”.

However, Kurt is a songwriter, director and producer of films, music videos and recordings. He has over four million YouTube subscribers, 25 million monthly views, 800+ million total views, and over 150 videos on his YouTube channel KurtHugoSchneider. Kurt has also collaborated with Hunter Hayes, Jason Mraz, Jason Derulo, Phillip Phillips, Megan Nicole, and many other musicians.

American-Hong Konger Sam and production partner Kurt been making homemade music videos and being heartthrobs on your computer screen for almost five years now. But hold your squeals as these YouTube artistes will be appearing at a stage near you.
