About Greyson Chance, in case you live under a rock and missed his rise to pop culture fame.
In April 2010, the sixth-grader posted a clip on YouTube of himself performing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" at a choir event in his hometown of Edmond, Oklahoma; it went on to become YouTube's #3 most popular video of 2010. A phenomenon among social media sites, the video was viewed by over 30 million people and led to a performance two weeks later on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Only a week after that, during his second appearance on her show, DeGeneres announced that she had signed the youngster to her newly formed label, eleveneleven. Greyson is currently working on his debut album with a top team of producers including acclaimed songwriter/producer and Geffen Records chairman Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, The Black Eyed Peas, The Pussycat Dolls.) The album is coming soon on eleveneleven/Maverick/Geffen. Chance's debut single "Waiting Outside the Lines" is available for purchase in WalMart, Target, FYE and everywhere CDs are sold and was recently the #1 physical single in the country for four straight.
