Who is Jake Foushee?
Jake Foushee is an American internet star, who came into the limelight for his exquisite voice-acting capabilities, which were first presented to the world through his Vine account which at a time gathered a total of more than 1.7 million fans. Jake is also widely recognized for his voice-acting engagements on TV series such as “Sanders Shorts” and “Transformers: Cyberverse”, as well as for his presence on several popular social media networks, including YouTube and Instagram.
Early Life and Education
Jake Tillman Foushee was born under the zodiac sign of Taurus on the 1st May 1997 in North Carolina, USA, and apart from being of American nationality, he is also of white ethnicity. In spite of few available details about his parents and his family’s background, it has been publicly acknowledged that he has a younger brother named Luke, born in 1999. Additionally, not much is known regarding Jake’s level of education, except that he attended Cary Academy in Cary, North Carolina.
Rise to Fame
At the early age of 13 Jake was having a cold and woke up one morning with his voice completely changed which literally deepened overnight. With the cold gone and a new voice, Jake realized his capabilities as well as the possibilities of his new found talent, and decided to make a career out of it. In January 2011, he launched his own, eponymous YouTube channel, currently counting nearly 130,000 subscribers (often referred to as MoonwalkHD), on which he began uploading video clips, and doing various voice-overs and impersonations. Alongside several popular YouTube rising stars, he was even a member of the group of internet celebrities, called OurPizzaGang.
However, to a greater prominence Jake came when he began uploading his videos on a former short-video hosting service and sharing platform – Vine – on which he quickly gathered over 1.7 million fans and followers.
With his popularity on the rise, in April 2012 young Jake Foushee appeared as a guest in an episode of “Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show” during which it was announced to him that Ellen ‘called the Abrams Artists Agency in New York City – one of the most highly regarded voice-over, talent and literary agencies in the industry, and they would like to officially sign’ him. However, details of what later occurred from this arrangement have never been publicly disclosed.
In the following year he featured in the 2013 TV documentary series “Becoming You Tube”, while in 2014 he tried his luck in the ninth season of the popular competitive talent show “America’s Got Talent”. However, he failed to make a success and qualify for the final stages of the show. Soon after this venture, Jake was appointed as the announcer of “Teen Choice Awards 2014”, which eventually led him to his debut voice-acting performance – later that year he gave voice to several characters in the web musical comedy series “Sanders Shorts”.
In 2018, Foushee voice-acted as Optimus Prime in the TV Sci-Fi animated series “”Transformers: Cyberverse”, while in 2019 his voice livened up an Elite Member character in the critically booed horror movie entitled “Slasher Party”.
Despite his popularity, the 22-year-old voice-acting sensation hasn’t revealed too many details about his personal life so far, such as about his love life and current romantic connections. He is unmarried and quite possibly single at the moment, as there isn’t a single girl mentioned by him in the media or through one of his social media network accounts. Still, he acknowledged in one of his interviews that he had a girlfriend ‘since before all this started. She’s really happy for me, and she’s with me through it all.’
Young Foushee is standing 5ft 10ins (1.78m) tall and weighing around 154lbs (70kgs). In his spare time, he enjoys traveling as well as cooking, and is also an avid fan of the National Football League’s Dallas Cowboys.
Apart from all those mentioned above, Jake Foushee is also active on several popular social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter, on which his official account @JakeFoushee has amassed a total of over 370,000 followers. However, a great dose of his fame comes from his presence on Instagram, on which his official profile @jakefoushee is currently being followed by more than 520,000 fans and counting.
His net worth, speaking as of mid-2019, revolves around the sum of $500,000, which has been accomplished through all his endeavors mentioned above. Managing to gather such an impressive amount of wealth in the course of just a couple of years certainly makes Jake Foushee quite a successful young man.
