Fact Check: Zelenskyy And Wife Did NOT Sing 'Endless Love' Cover On YouTube Not Them

Did Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Olena Zelenska, the president and first lady of Ukraine, sing a cover of "Endless Love" and post it on YouTube? No, that's not true: The couple seen in this video are not the Zelenskyys. The man is a member of the Florida-based band Boyce Avenue, and the woman is Connie Talbot, a British singer.

The claim appeared in a Facebook post (archived here) on March 8, 2022. The caption reads:

Ukrainian President and his beautiful wife during happier times

This is what the post looked like on Facebook at the time of writing:

The woman seen in this video, Connie Talbot, is not a member of Boyce Avenue. Talbot is a British singer who appeared on "Britain's Got Talent" in 2007 at age 6.
