|Greyson Chance in Toronto - August 2011|
Many of us have seen that Viral YouTube Clip of him performing Lady Gaga's Paparazzi, but who would've known that the stars would align so quickly for that 12 year-old Boy from Edmond, Oregon? With the click of a "send" button and another and then another, the Video now has amassed over 48 million views worldwide since surfacing online. Chance, now 14 years-old, is signed Recording Artist under our beloved Ellen DeGeneres' eleveneleven label, distributed by Universal Music.
Released early August, Chance's debut Disc, Hold On 'til the Night debuted at number 29 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 200 Chart, which actually is impressive considering much of his promotion has been online only. The porcelain-complexioned Singer/Songwriter now officially is embarking on a Promotional Tour for the Disc, including a Toronto stop-off which has seen him perform at a free Concert at the Canadian National Exhibition for Cambio Connect, CTV's Canada AM, MuchMusic's New.Music.Live and various other Radio outlets like KISS 92.5, where Chance got to meet my Good Friend @PlanetMaurie, who jokingly took a survey online of who was taller - Chance or himself. See the fun Photo here. Of course, Chance is taller!

Making sure fully that no Fan left disappointed, he then threw a wave and thanked everyone for their patience. What can I say, Mr. & Mrs. Chance and Ellen taught him well! 'Attaboy, Greyson!
Although it's really short, see a Video of Chance below:
