Greyson Chance has come a long way since posting to YouTube, his performance of Paparazzi at the Edmond Music Festival. Today, April 28th, 2011 marks the one-year anniversary of the video debuting and the statement “a lot can happen in one year” sums things up pretty well.
Greyson’s performance of Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi went viral shortly after he posted it to YouTube one year ago today. Once TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres to get a glimpse of the twelve-year-old superstar she invited him onto her show. Greyson made two appearances on Ellen’s nationally televised show which led to a record deal with ElevenEleven and Mavrick/Geffen Records.
In the year since Greyson has met his idol Lady Gaga, been featured by national media outlets around the world, walked the red carpets of some of the most prestigious events in the music industry, released his first EP, gone on tour with Miranda Cosgrove, performed for (and met) President Barack Obama and is in the mists of headlining a tour with Cody Simpson; oh, and he’s about to release his debut album! All in one year!
Greyson has a loyal fan following, evident with over a half-MILLION followers on Twitter and over 39 million views of his Paparazzi video.
Through it all Greyson has managed to keep his management team in check, doing things his way!
