Keenan Cahill, a 17-year-old Chicago YouTube sensation, has had a remarkable career so far: He's been shouted out by Katy Perry, racked up some 500,000,000 YouTube views for his lip-sync videos and worked with 50 Cent, LMFAO, Jason Derulo and others. So what's the teenager, who suffers from the hereditary disease MPS6, doing next? Releasing an album.
"After four years we're starting to transition out of lip-syncing," he explains. "I wanted to be a singer and I knew it would happen one day, I just didn't know when or how. Artists are willing to [work with me] since they know who I am and they wanna help out."
