Southern California based singer-songwriter David Choi found fame after posting his first music video on YouTube, titled YouTube: A Love Song and in a week it had received an overwhelming half-a-million views. This launched Choi’s idea to continue producing witty lyrics and high quality content for his soon to be reckoned fans and viewership.

A father who is also a recognized musician in his own rights, and a mother who runs a record store, Choi’s parents undoubtedly had a huge influence on his music career. At a young age, David was required to play the piano and violin--an experience that he did not enjoy. Presently, David has three original albums and currently working on a fourth.

Choi’s original songs and covers have been heard on NBC, FOX, VH1, MTV, A&E, E!, Travel Channel, Style Network, PBS, Food Network Disney, Samsung, and various soap operas internationally. David has also partnered up with companies such as W Hotel, Kellogg’s, Starburst, the American Cancer Society, General Electric, Samsung, JCPenney, and AT&T (It Can Wait).

As of September 2014, David Choi’s YouTube Channel had over 995,000+ subscribers, over 92,000,000 total views, followed by a his FB, with over 371,000+, Instagram at 70,000+. His social reach has brought him to countries including but not limited to Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, and many more.

David Choi was recently featured at the TedXTalks Orange County, A Beautiful Mind where he spoke about how, “...creativity is boundless.” Choi was also recognized and landed front page on the nationally circulated magazine, KoreAm Journal, December 2013 issue. Working with celebrity musicians like Macy Gray and interviewed by Larry King, David enjoys talking about his journey from from posting, “YouTube A Love Song” to receiving over 7 Million Views on his hit original “That Girl,” on youtube. 

In early 2014, David’s hit original, “By My Side”, was licensed by an Indonesian based music label. David partnered up with the beautiful Maudy Ayunda, an acclaimed singer-songwriter from Jakarta, Indonesia to re-release the hit song. “By My Side” hit #1 in iTunes Indonesia, and is played in radio daily.
