Get to Know YouTube Sensation Greyson Chance!

What’s going on CelebSecrets4U readers?

We would like to introduce to a new up-and-coming artist named Greyson Chance!

Greyson Chance posted a clip of himself performing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” on YouTube in April, he never dreamed that the video would become a viral sensation viewed by more than 28 million people. The clip, shot by Greyson’s dad, shows the Cheyenne Middle School sixth-grader at the piano, singing his heart out at a choir event as the female-dominated audience looks on slack-jawed with amazement.

Greyson’s obvious talent led to an invitation to appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show just two weeks later (his first-ever plane trip), where he chatted confidently with DeGeneres, performed “Paparazzi,” and fielded a congratulatory on-air phone call from Lady Gaga herself, who advised him to “work really hard, be focused, and stay away from girls,” adding what had already become readily apparent: “You’ve already won over everyone’s hearts.”

Indeed this bright-eyed, freckled-faced kid has become a star in just a few short months. During Greyson’s second appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show a week later, DeGeneres announced that he was to become the first artist signed to her newly formed label eleveneleven Records, which released his first single on eleveneleven, Maverick and Geffen Records.

The girls from CelebSecrets4U had to opportunity to sit down with Greyson earlier last week, where he told us all about his story on becoming a YouTube sensation and his upcoming tour with Aussie cutie, Cody Simpson!
