Names You Know
How you know Greyson:
When 12-year-old 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 shows the Cheyenne Middle School sixth-grader at the piano, singing his heart out at a choir event as the audience looks on slack-jawed with amazement.
Greyson was later invited to appear on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" where he performed “Paparazzi” and fielded a congratulatory on-air phone call from Lady Gaga herself.
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 will release his first single this fall on eleveneleven, Maverick, and Geffen Records.
