Everloop, the safe, online headquarters for kids to connect with friends, create, share and discover, is partnering with teen singer and songwriter Greyson Chance to provide kids the opportunity to showcase their talents, be recognized and win prizes. What a terrific initiative.
The promotions includes a Greyson Chance loop which lets kids get up close and personal with sneak peeks of Chance in the studio, express their creativity through musical activities, and participate in contests to win prizes, including merchandise and real-time conversations with the young musical prodigy.
"I'm excited to be working with a social media site created just for kids that is fun, creative and safe so I can interact with my fans even more," said Chance. "Social media has played a huge part in my career and now on Everloop I'll get the chance to connect with my fans on a new level and provide them a chance to showcase their creativity as well."
During the promotion, Greyson Chance fans will have the opportunity to participate in various contest activities, including a photo contest to be judged by Chance, an opportunity to create song lyrics and an activity that allows kids to develop an album cover and more contests to be announced through the event.
At 14, Chance is an accomplished performer, songwriter and actor. The young teen was discovered when his performance of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" at his 6th grade talent show went viral on YouTube . Now, with a full length album, Hold on 'Til the Night, under his belt from eleveneleven/ Maverick/ Streamline/ Geffen records, he has gone on to complete two successful North American tours, performed at the White House, appeared on several national television shows and earned a recurring role on the primetime FOX Television show Raising Hope.
"The Internet provides many opportunities for kids and we can't think of a better person to represent all that Everloop has to offer and the benefits that come from the Internet," said Sandy Barger, CMO of Everloop. "Greyson embodies the creativity, self expression and sharing of talents that Everloop promotes for its users in a safe, age appropriate environment."
In an age where kids are connected to the Internet via a multitude of gadgets, Everloop provides a safe homebase for young "digital citizens" to socialize and pursue digital activities. Everloop's state-of-the-art privacy protection and monitoring technology guard young users against bullying, bad language and inappropriate sharing of information. The unique looping technology of Everloop allows kids to join groups by interest, allowing for discovery, friendship and mastery. The Greyson Chance loop adds to Everloop's rich breadth of content, further providing kids a place to express themselves, create and share with others.
"Today's kids are born digital citizens. We developed Everloop to give kids under 13 a place to share, communicate and learn the ins and outs of being a responsible digital citizen," said Everloop CEO, Hilary DeCesare. "Our partnership with Greyson and our recent partnerships with National Geographic and Mattel further establish Everloop as a leading homebase for kids."
