my musical mind: Greyson Chance

Greyson Chance is the true definition of a 21st century artist; he was discovered on Youtube when his cover of Lady Gaga's 'Paparazzi' went viral. Ellen took notice of him and his talent for singing and playing piano and had him on her show for the first time in May, 2010. 

Since appearing on Ellen, Greyson's music career has taken off; he has released a debut album called Hold On 'Til The Night, appeared on Ellen several more times, and gained an incredibly dedicated fanbase (especially online) — all at only 14 years old! His sound can be described as pop with lots of piano accompaniment and he is influenced by artists like Lady Gaga, Augustana, and Paul McCartney. 

We asked him a few questions to get to know more about this young sensation...
