Greyson Chance turned up the heat a bit in a video just posted to his official YouTube channel where the teen singer absolutely killed it singing his version of Augustana’s “Fire”.
There hasn’t been much activity on Greyson’s YouTube channel since he uploaded six videos four months ago, including the popular “Paparazzi” cover which has racked up close to 32 million views and launched his music career. The silence was broken this morning though after Greyson uploaded a new video of himself singing “Fire” by Augustana. If you’re a reader of Greyson’s #1 Fansite then you already know that he will release a studio version of “Fire” on one of his upcoming albums, but that didn’t stop him from giving us a little sneak-peak!
We were among the first to checkout his new release and already there were over 200 comments praising the thirteen-year-old singing sensation. ZipChic99 said, “I get goose bumps from his voice, excellent song too”. Mary Alexandra told us “In love, no comparison to anyone” and Annie was super impressed when she commented, “Wow, you have an amazing voice; you put so much variety into singing one song, love it”.
One of the first things you’ll notice when checking out this new cover is that Greyson’s ancient friend, the Greyson family piano has been swapped out for a brand new one. Several months back we learned on The Ellen Show that Greyson was given a brand new piano from Yamaha, so this raises the question, is this that new piano? GCW learned that this cover was record in Greyson’s apartment in Los Angeles. After a bit of research it’s believed that we’ve also identified this piano as being from Yamaha’s “Upright” series; either the U1SG, U3SG, YUS1SG, YUS3SG or YUS5SG model. So it’s definitely a good possibility that this is in fact the piano given to Greyson by Yamaha on The Ellen DeGeneres Show a few months back.
The second thing you’ll notice about the video is that Greyson has traded in his hoody sweatshirt and Adidas gym shorts (which he previously had worn in his cover videos) for a much more clean, professional and updated look. In the video Greyson sports a long sleeve plaid shirt with the sleeves rolled up, jeans and a few of his signature bracelets. Greyson’s also styling with a fresh rocker haircut too!
The third thing you notice is when Greyson opens his mouth and starts singing. Talk about being blown away! I’m not sure if you’ve heard Augustana’s original version of this song (YouTube it), but we think that Greyson’s version is wayyy better! (Sorry Augustana!) For a video recorded in an apartment, with the acoustics being less than favorable, Greyson sounded amazing!
A big thanks goes out to Greyson Chance from GCW for posting this video and giving us a little sneak peak for what we can expect on your upcoming album. As if we weren’t already dying to get our hands on some new songs, this cover has only added to that desire. We can’t wait!
Another “thank you” goes out to all of Greyson’s fans who have supported him and his Fansite, GreysonChanceWeb.com. This only marks the beginning of great things to come, so stay tuned and rock on!
