“Now how amazing is it that music can determine the way you feel. It controls you. It changes your mood which can affect your entire day. A song can change your life. A song can bring back a memory you forgot about. It can do all those things listed up there. Songs trigger emotions. That’s power. Almost manipulative.”
We touched a little bit on the Korean American YouTube musician and video producer merely a week when he did an amazing cover of Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up”. On YouTube, he’s famously known for uploading videos of covers of popular songs and also some of his own originals – which eventually also became popular.
So popular that David Choi has over 957,137 subscribers, 106,910,987 total video views, and more than 13 million channel views. As of November 2011 he is YouTube’s 15th most subscribed musician and 62nd most subscribed user.
And that’s not all.
On his second YouTube channel, David Choi Talks, which he utilizes to take his fans behind the scenes and into his life, he has 51,469 subscribers and 3,433,115 total video views!
That’s a lot of numbers.
During his tours in 2011, he announced that some of the songs he was performing then will be included in his new album.
Since then, his fans have been waiting with bated breaths for the official announcement. Huge and endearing exhales were heard all over the world when “Missing Piece“, the first music video from his latest album “Forever and Ever“, was released:

Of course, he’s not only known for his musical talents (that boy can sing, play the guitar, banjo, piano, violin, ukulele, and mandolin).
David Choi also has his funny sides, evidently, from his collaborations with Wong Fu Productions (who were responsible for his “Won’t Even Start“, “That Girl“, and “By My Side” music videos). He also made a little Valentine’s Day sketch with the help of some friends this year:
