Tay Zonday Biography

Adam Nyerere Bahner (created July 6, 1982), better known by the pseudonym Tay Zonday, is an American singer, musician, announcer, voice artist, performer, comic and YouTube persona. He’s recognized by listeners for his baritone singing voice. He garnered mainstream exposure when his tune “Chocolate Rain” became a viral video in July 2007. As of July 2014, “Chocolate Rain” has over 97 million viewpoints.

In July 2007, Zonday was a graduate student in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was soon making appearances on national television. In March 2008, the video won a YouTube-award in the category “Music.” The Australian Daily Telegraph newspaper wrote: “Tay Zonday has written perhaps the most listened to tune on the planet right now.” Folks said: “He’s scored a YouTube success with his persistent, keyboard-driven ‘Chocolate Rain’, and following a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tay Zonday’s star is shining even brighter.” This article also noted that star musicians paid tribute to the tune as its popularity quickly peaked in August 2007. John Mayer apparently reproduced Zonday’s keyboard riff along with his guitar in concert, as well as appearing on Best Week Ever improvising a parody to the tune of Nelly Furtado’s “Say It Right”. Zonday additionally became the theme of thousands of other parodies and remixes on YouTube. A clip of his video was also revealed on The CW’s short lived show, Online Nation. Tay Zonday has additionally been interviewed twice on Good Morning America, in March and November 2008.
