With almost 2.5 million subscribers on YouTube, Sam Tsui has been a viral music sensation for years. Best known for his mash-up covers and later his solo music, Tsui has always let his music speak for itself.
Speaking in his video “Vlog - Exciting News!!!!!”, Tsui addresses ongoing speculation from his fans about his love life. “Yes I am dating someone,” he excitedly announces. “I am in a relationship and have been for quite some time with someone that I have only recently started doing a bunch of YouTube videos with. He is an amazing singer a lot of you probably already know who he is - the talented and very handsome Casey Breves.”
While most YouTubers are known for their heavy reliance on injecting their personal life into every video, Tsui’s channel is mostly performance based.
“To some of you this might be a bit of a surprise just given that I have not at all really talked about this kind of stuff before with you guys,” he explains.
“And given that this is a ‘coming out’ video of a sort I want to say very clearly that waiting to tell you guys about this does not mean that I am or was ashamed of anything. I am incredibly proud of who I am and very proud of my relationship with Casey because he is amazing."
And the reason for Tsui’s coming out video? Well he and Casey got married, of course.
