Just 13 years old, Jacob gained his fame because of his millions of followers on social media.  Jacob Sartorius began lip-sinking on and became beloved by many. Continuing to share his fun personality through YouTube videos and more, Jacob recently talked openly about his adoption, his birth family, his adoptive family, and all the love he’s blessed with.
