He's 13 years old. Like Justin Beiber he was discovered through YouTube.
Unlike Beiber, I think this kid has a chance (pun?) to make a long career from his talent. He wrote a song, "Stars" that blew me away. Its about a man who misses his wife who died of cancer but knows he will see her again, in the stars.
I will see if I can find the link.

Found it!! "Stars" by Greyson Chance

HOW CAN A 12 YEAR OLD BE ABLE TO WRITE LIKE THIS????

Started to cry, as the doctor told me

She was going to leave us tonight

So I stifled my tears, now went into her room

To my surprise she had a twinkle in her eye

She said I know that I am leaving you behind

But don’t worry I’ll be fine

I will be high in the blue sky

Among those beautiful stars
Cause in the sky

Oh so high

There are beautiful stars which shine in the night

She’ll be dancing in the clouds and she’ll be singin’ in the rain

Among those beautiful stars

Cause in the sky

Oh so high

There are beautiful stars which shine in the light

She’ll be dancing in the clouds and she’ll be singin’ in the rain

Among those beautiful stars
Held her hand as she went

She took her last breath

And the tears started flowing out again

And I went to the window and I opened it

And there she was, she was shining in the sky

Among those beautiful stars
Cause in the sky

Oh so high

There are beautiful stars which shine in the light

She’ll be dancing in the clouds and she’ll be singin’ in the rain

Among those beautiful stars

Way up in the sky

There are beautiful stars that shine in the light

She’ll be dancing in the clouds and she’ll be singin’ in the rain

Among those beautiful stars
Five years have past

The cancer was spreading, I wouldn’t last

So I took my last breath
I was in the sky

Oh so high

With those beautiful stars that shine in the light

I was dancing in the clouds and I was singin’ in the rain

And I saw a beautiful face

And we were in the sky

Oh so high

With those beautiful stars that shine in the light

We were dancing in the clouds, we were singin’ in the rain

Among those beautiful stars
We were dancing in the clouds, we were singin in the rain

Among those beautiful stars

Oh my gosh, where does a talent like that COME from?!? Unreal. Definitely love this kid, and I agree with you Joe, he has 'staying power', as they say in the biz. Thumbsup


And as I see him sitting at the piano, singing with a voice like that, I just have to imagine how it would feel to be this child's parent. I could listen to that all day long!

He doesn't sound like him but he made me think of Billy Gilman. Remember him?
He is a talent...boy they start SO early....

Yep, I sure do....I loved him! Greyson's a little older though (I think??)....and hopefully his voice has changed? I'm not really sure actually---there's a depth to it but I can't tell if it's changed yet. He has quite the sound though. And LOL, I found this on youtube the other night was I was looking for him. SO STINKIN' CUTE!

I think I'd freak out if my kid sang like this at 5!!

I absolutely LOVE Billy Gilman! I met him at one of his concerts once, he is such a talented singer and seems like a genuinely nice kid.
But this boy kind of reminds me of him too, Gin - Greyson doesn't really sound like Billy, (although his voice reminds me a little bit of the tone of Billy's as he got a little older), but he has such a beautiful voice. And thank you for sharing those lyrics, Joe! I wonder how he learned to write like that? What a gift!
