Tay Zonday: "Chocolate Rain" 

Make no mistake, our next crooner hits all his own notes. Tay Zonday first made a splash with his 2007 smash, "Chocolate Rain."

Zonday's surprisingly deep vocals and seemingly cryptic lyrics resonated with the world, transforming him from student into superstar.

For Zonday--born Adam Nyerere Bahner--"Chocolate Rain" opened plenty of doors. The baritone belter popped up on everything from CNN to "USA Today" and even found himself being imitated by real-world rock stars. Now 26, Zonday is working hard to show that he's no one-hit wonder. He has released more than a dozen Net-driven singles and has expanded his vocal prowess into the world of commercial voice-over work.

"The hardest thing about being an Internet celebrity is you don't get any vacation," he says. "There is no off-season."
