RICHMOND, Va. -- A Richmond-based YouTube star couple is not letting the COVID-19 pandemic keep them from making big moves and spreading positivity.

Cole and Charisma, of Roll with Cole & Charisma fame, are an interabled couple who post videos for their 320,000 subscribers.

The pair met at a rehabilitation center after Cole became paralyzed from an injury and they fell in love.

Now they are engaged and just bought a house together. [RELATED: RVA YouTube star’s surprise proposal song is ‘best moment ever’]

Cole and Charisma said moving during a pandemic has been stressful, but they are taking extra precautions since Cole doesn't have full lung capacity.

However, their mission on YouTube remains the sane.

"People are coming to YouTube for something else other than the virus," Charisma said. "They want to see some positivity, they want to laugh, they want to smile."

"Charisma and I have chosen to continue our lives, keep forging ahead and find things in our life that we can be excited, positive about," Cole said.

The couple said they have been getting a lot of questions about their upcoming wedding, but said at this point they are moving forward with everything as planned.
