Tay Zonday

YouTube is about to invent its first music star. His name is Tay Zonday, he's 25, he's smart, and he's from Minneapolis. "Internet Dream" and "Chocolate Rain" will be huge.


His rendition of Edelweiss had me in tears. A stocking cap and Aloha shirt.. magic. I'm so moving back.

You can thank 4chan for this meme.

I'm a fan of this remix.

Real name.

Looks like Adam Bahner is his real name.

Check out the URL of "Adam's Youtube channel" on this page.

That would make Tay a grad student of American Studies at U of M. A guess: this experience becomes a big part of his thesis on race relations.

Whoa... that's interesting. He says in interviews that Tay is his real name.
