I know I must really behind the curve on what's new and happening out there. I just found out about this great new artist named Greyson Chance. Until receiving some information in an email, I had never heard of this young man. And young he is, Greyson is only 12 years old, but is ready to give some of the mainstays in the music industry a run for their money.  Greyson first received notoriety when he placed a video of himself, performing at a choir event, on You Tube, performing Lady Gaga's hit Paparazzi.  The video almost instantly became viral and currently has more than 32 million hits. 

Since that time he has been almost everywhere. He has literally become a star in the matter of a couple months. Ellen DeGeneres announced that she has signed him as the first artist to her newly formed label eleveneleven Records. Greyson is currently in the studio working on his debut album with veteran songwriter/producer and Geffen Records chairman Ron Fair.  Check him out performing Waiting Outside the Lines for radio Disney. 

He is one to keep your eye on. You can also check out Greyson's videos on You Tube follow him on twitter and facebook.
