I knew you’d all want to celebrate this exciting break in Sam Tsui’s career (since I’ve been promoting him for so long and knew he’d be a star probably even before he did). Well, the day has come. Sam landed the role of Online Correspondent for the a cappella show The Sing-Off! Check him out on NBC Monday, September 19th at 8/7 central for the premiere. And while you’re counting down the hours til it starts, fill the time by watching this great medley he put together… can’t seem to get enough of this kid. He’s exceptionally talented!
FINALLY, a new cover from Sam. Hope you enjoy his version of Adele’s Rolling In the Deep! Happy Monday!
I know I haven’t written much about my favorite up-and-coming-singer Sam Tsui lately and that’s mainly because he’s been busy finishing up his Senior Year at Yale (which doesn’t leave much time for YouTube video-making).
Had to share this with you as proof of Sam Tsui’s impending rise to stardom…
Tom Hanks was the Commencement speaker for Yale this year and he mentioned Sam Tsui not once, not twice, but 3 times in his speech! Talk about good publicity. The video is a bit long but you can see him mentioned at these 3 spots:
Mention #1 @ minute 2:10 – “Hey, you could be the next Sam Tsui.”
Mention #2 @ minute 8:15 – “That Sam Tsui, he rocks!”
Mention #3 @ minute 22:00 – “Move forward, move ever forward, and tweet out a picture of the results – it may make you as famous as Sam Tsui.”
A much deserved moment in the spotlight for Sam and one I’m sure he’ll never forget!
This is a nice combo: Favorite Song of the Moment + Favorite Up-And-Coming-Singer. Sam Tsui hasn’t been releasing much lately, so I was glad to see this one come through. Pretty sure you’re gonna love it!
Sam Tsui hasn’t been posting much so I was delighted to see this brand new original come through. Too bad he has to be a student too… :) Hope you enjoy it!
It’s been a long wait for a new release but this remake of John Lennon’s “Imagine” was worth it. I think you’ll enjoy this beautiful tribute to the victims of the Tuscon shooting.
Sam Tsui does Ellen! I feel like a proud Mom… :)
My crazy travel schedule got me off my usual Thursday Sam postings. Since I’ve been missing him, I assume you have been too! Hope you enjoy this new duet “Just a Dream.”
This is one of the first Sam Tsui songs that got steady play on my IPOD. It’s called “Down” by Jay Sean. I think you’re going to love it as much as I do… did I mention it’s acoustic too?
Finally, a little something acoustic. Now this is much more up my alley. Hope you enjoy Paramore’s “The Only Exception.”
