The Pop Can

greysonchance_blogWho: Greyson Chance
Where:  Edmond, Oklahoma
For fans of:  David Archuleta, Augustana, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Jonas Brothers

In the rare event you have been living under a rock and/or do not pay attention to online, print and even tv media, just about everyone knows who he is.  What started as an innocuous and allegedly weak-viewed video of then 12 year old from Oklahoma covering Lady Gaga’s hit “Paparazzi” became an overnight internet sensation thanks to a letter to then American Idol judge and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres from his older brother Tanner.  The phenomenon grew even larger as Chance landed plum appearances on Ellen, once received a phone call from one of his musical inspirations Lady Gaga (his other is pop/rock heavyweights Augustana) and a myriad of tv news show appearances as either the guest or the subject of.  Now signed to Interscope Records by way of Ellen’s newly formed label eleveneleven Music, the now 13 year old is poised to turn 2011 into the “Year of the Chance” and perhaps even dwarf 2010’s current phenomenon “Bieber Fever”…

Can this rising talent realize his musical potential, despite coming in with very little musical training (only 3 years of piano lessons and no formal vocal training)?  Only time will tell for this rather naturally gifted 13 year old singer-songwriter…

    Yes he is talented but does not have the voice of David Archuleta or the moves of Justin Beiber! Truly tired of all the hype and money going into him at only 13. Great at the piano but not that great of a voice.But I am sure that Ellen wont stop until he hits it big!

    I agree! He will have all the promotion he needs to make it big, but his voice isn’t that great. Voice really doesn’t matter in the music business now though. I’m sure he is the next Justin Beiber. Ellen has the pull to make it happen.
