There are artistes, and then there are YouTube artistes, and then there are YouTube artistes who wins over the hearts of viewers by first covering songs across multiple genres before moving on to compose his own music and winning awards.
What are we on about? The young and super-heroically talented Sungha Jung, a South Korean acoustic fingerstyle guitarist who, like many other YouTube artistes, shot to fame via YouTube. It later earned him a whopping total of 15 awards on YouTube, including six #1 awards.
As of December 2012, Sungha Jung’s channel has over 17 million views, more than 1,160,000 subscribers, and 605 million views.
Did we also mention that he not only composes his own music but he has some pretty neat collaborations in his resume? Last year, he collaborated with YG Entertainment’s super girl group, 2NE1 for two acoustic versions of their hit songs, “Lonely” and “I Love You”:
