leave a comment »

After just a few days on the internet, sixth-grader Greyson Chance became an internet phenomenon.  At a sixth grade music concert he decided to to play the piano and sing his rendition of Lady Gaga’s hit song Paparazzi, the fourth single off her multiplatinum debut album The Fame.  The result was a YouTube video that as of today has been viewed over 10 million times.  The success of the video has lead him to be featured on numerous news programs and even make a recent stop at The Ellen DeGeneres Show.  The question is what is next for the YouTube sensation?  People are already speculating that a record deal is in his near future and the comparisons are being made to certain teen pop star– Justin Bieber.  Like, Greyson Chance, Bieber got his start by posting videos of himself singing on YouTube before Usher signed him and took him under his wing.  It looks like with all of the opportunities available this isn’t the last we’ll be hearing of Greyson Chance.
