YouTube Lip Syncer Keenan Cahill Dies at 27 in Chicago Hospital

Before many TikTok users were lip-syncing and attempted complex choreography to pop songs, there was lip-sync master Keenan Cahill. By mouthing the lyrics to current tunes, Cahill amassed millions of views on his YouTube channel with little more than a desktop computer and unbridled zeal. Even famous people joined him, such as Katy Perry and 50 Cent.

His manager David Graham confirmed that Cahill, a delightful, bespectacled musician in his own right whose videos charmed millions, passed away on Thursday at a hospital in Chicago. He was 27.

The Chicago native had Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome, a disorder that, among other symptoms, causes organs to grow. He underwent numerous operations and repeated treatments for the syndrome. His verified social media accounts indicated that he had an open heart surgery procedure scheduled for early this month.

His family wrote on a GoFundMe page shared on his Facebook page and set up by his aunt, “Complications emerged that he couldn’t overcome.” The charity event was created to generate money to cover Cahill’s burial and hospital costs.

With his lip-syncing videos, which he recorded while still a teenager in his bedroom from his workstation, Cahill rose to fame as one of the first viral sensations of the decade of 2010. The idea was straightforward: Cahill, who is always expressive, would confidently recite the words to era favorites like Usher’s “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” and Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In the World)” while the views poured in.
