The Piano Guys celebrate a monumental landmark, reaching 1 Billion views on YouTube for their innovative music videos. On Saturday night at their concert at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, YouTube honored them with a plaque commemorating this exciting achievement. According to YouTube – just over 100 artist channels, including some of the biggest icons in the world, have reached the 1 billion view mark.

Of their latest landmark, Steven Sharp Nelson says: "A billion is a big number. Especially for a quartet of dads who just started making music videos for fun. Honestly, we are overwhelmed with gratitude. We feel like there have been so many miracles to make this possible that we are simply along for the ride. Behind every view is someone that has spent their time and sometimes their hard-earned money in support of us. We've built this on their shoulders. We also feel like there have been lots of answered prayers along the way too. No matter how big the number gets, we've promised ourselves that we'll never lose sight of this. We were in the middle of tour when the big billionth view boomed so we celebrated the best way we know how – by thanking our audience personally!"
