Greyson Chance has teamed up with the National Association of Musical Merchants (NAMM) and will be co-hosting (and performing) at the third annual SchoolJam USA finals event alongside fellow singer/songwriter (and season-seven “American Idol” contestant) Shaun Barrowes!
The teen battle of the bands-style competition will take place in Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California on January 21st, 2012!
SchoolJam USA is a national program that rewards aspiring teen musicians (ages 13-19) and promotes active participation in school programs. The top eight finalist bands will perform live at Downtown Disney District in front of a panel of professional judges and hundreds of fans for the opportunity to take home the title of “Best Teen Band in the USA”.
This is what Greyson had to say about participating in the event:
“I am honored to be a part of a program with NAMM that is encouraging students to grow their musical talents,” Chance said. “Music is such an important part of my life and I am very excited to help shine the spotlight on some new talent – it’s important to me to support programs like SchoolJam USA and foster ongoing music education.”
