EXCLUSIVE: Get to Know Justin Bieber’s Competition: Greyson Chance
Back in April of 2010, Greyson Chance’s older brother posted a clip on YouTube of Chance performing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” at a choir event in his hometown of Edmond, Oklahoma and that is the starting point for the HUGE life change that has given Greyson the life he never knew was possible.
At just 13 years-old, Greyson Chance is taking the music world by storm! With two successful North American tours, performing at the White House, national television appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,”, “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “Good Morning America,” and the latest…. the release of his debut album Hold On ‘Til The Night.
Hollywood Hiccups got to chat with Greyson and get to know him a little bit better. This guy is a sweetheart and is going to be in the center of the music industry for a very long time. Watch out Justin Bieber!
