For anyone that has followed Greyson Chance for any period of time, you know that in the past he was often dubbed “The Next Justin Bieber”. We’ve always disagreed with that statement personally because we feel he is different than the Biebs in so many ways. While both artists rise to fame may have been similar (as they both were discovered on YouTube), the similarities quickly become fewer and farther between.
These differences and what makes Greyson so unique are the topic of a recent editorial by Elizabeth Soh of Singapore Showbiz at Yahoo Entertainment. “Chance’s music is remarkably different from J Biebs’ hop-hop pop, coming off more like a hybrid of jazz singer Jamie Cullum’s pensive vocal style and Jason Mraz-esque folksy influences” says Soh.
No need for auto-tune, Greyson’s raw singing ability has carried him through his short career. Through it all though Greyson has remained true to himself and his fans. Greyson cares for his fans so much in fact that during a recent show his management bough pizza for hungry girls who were camping out for hours in long lines -a “gesture that blows Bieber’s ‘One Less Lonely Girl’ antics and diva behavior right out of the water”.
