Greyson dreams of being a solo star and has composed two original songs, “Broken Hearts” and “Stars.” On May 13th Greyson even appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show performing “Papparazi.”
While on Ellen, Lady Gaga herself called Greyson encouraging him by saying, “Greyson, you’re so sweet and so talented, and I was so excited that you covered “Paparazzi.” Everyone loves you so much. Just keep following your dreams and work really hard, and stay away from girls and be focused.”
Greyson currently attends Cheyenne Middle School in Edmond, Oklahoma. Despite any formal voice training or lessons the career of this 6th grader seems to be taking off at lightening speed. Greyson Chance’s new representative is confirmed as being Madonna’s Kalabala-preaching manager, Guy Oseary.
