Greyson Chance (born Greyson Michael Chance in Wichita Falls, Texas on August 16, 1977) is an American singer/songwriter. He covered Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” for a sixth grade music festival and the video went viral on YouTube after Ellen DeGeneres got wind of it and promoted it to her followers. In May 2010, he performed on Ellen’s talk show, which was followed up by another performance — of an original song! — just two weeks later. Greyson was the first artist signed to Ellen’s record label, and he released his first album, Hold On ‘Til The Night, on Aug. 2, 2011. His following is mostly online, but his popularity helped him land a guest role during Season 2 of Raising Hope. Greyson is currently recording his second album.
