Greyson Chance is set to hit the books once again as the 2010/2011 school year begins; but the teen singer’s seventh grade venture will be a bit different than that of his peers.
It was only three short months ago when Greyson Chance was sitting in a sixth grade classroom at Cheyenne Middle School in Edmond, Oklahoma. The teen singer (then twelve years-old) carried on each day like any other student; he attended classes, ate lunch in the cafeteria and played with friends after school before sitting down at night to do his homework. As the school year concluded though Greyson’s life took a 180 degree turn after performing his rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. After stunning back to back performances and landing a record deal, the rest is history!
Fast forward three months, in the full swing of recording his debut album now, Greyson Chance has to be concerned with hitting the books once again. Earlier today Greyson told us that he is enrolled in an online school which will allow him to remotely complete coursework through the Internet. The focused singer has admittedly been slacking a bit in this department though; Greyson indicated to us that while he was tweeting online, he really should have been studying!
We’re sure Greyson will get his schedule all worked out to allow time for school, after all, he’ll have to answer to mom if he doesn’t! It just goes to show you that while most singers only have to focus on their music, Greyson has so much more he has to contend with, overcome and conquer. For those that don’t know, Greyson’s favorite subject is English because it helps him with writing music. As Greyson goes back to school we expect that this will only make him a better artist in the studio.
You’ll do great Greyson, rock on!
