A Great Big World’s Chad Vaccarino (pictured right) has discussed his sexuality in a new video blog.

The singer recorded the video to speak to fans about his struggle with Multiple Sclerosis, which he was diagnosed with in college.

In the video, he explained that his diagnosis plus his struggle to accept his own sexuality made those years “the most stressful time”.

He said: “I was grappling with my own sexuality, dealing with coming out to my closest friends and family members. It was the most stressful time of my life which caused it to become the unhealthiest time of my life.”

A Great Big World recently scored their UK chart debut with the Christina Aguilera-assisted Say Something. The song peaked at number four on the UK Top 40.
