Greyson Chance is an icon in the world of alternative music. Born in Edmond, Oklahoma, he was named after a blues singer and songwriter Chet Atkins, who was famous for his powerful performances on stage and in movies. Chance is best known for the songs he sings and performs, such as “Take This Job On”, “Hooked on the Maples Street”, and “Love is in the air”. The original recording of this song was originally called “Mama Blues”. Chance is also well known for playing keyboards and guitar in a number of bands and groups, most notably Sky Baby and Take That.
On August 16, Greyson Chance was captured on camera by a paparazzi while he was performing at a Music Festival in Edmond. Immediately following the paparazzi’s video was released online, the singer was severely criticized for his actions. He later clarified that he had taken the time to learn classical piano and flute while on tour with Lady Gaga but did not intend to use the music for personal gain. According to Chance’s band mate, Matt Zucherbarger Greyson Chance was out with the band in Seattle when the incident happened. The group was walking down the street when a group of people approached them, started asking questions about their famous musician friends, and then pursued them.
Chance appeared confused and scared while trying to run away, but luckily, other members of the group managed to calm him down. When the band arrived back in Seattle, they were approached by the local TV station, KCPK, which was filming the entire confrontation. They tried calling Chance’s cell phone, but were told that the line was non-working. The station attempted to get the band to give their statements, but they declined. They also tried asking random people if they knew Greyson Chance.
These days, Greyson Chance has released a statement saying that he plans to sue the paparazzi that he was sitting with the day before his tour with Lady Gaga. He is waiting to see if the paparazzi will be brought into the courtroom. This is quite common, as celebrities do not hesitate to go on record and share their side of any legal matter. Chance is also hopeful that he can regain the public trust that he has lost since his arrest.
In the meantime, he will have to focus on restoring his public image, which has been damaged due to the viral nature of the story. On the bright side, he did manage to get back in the studio with his group. The reunited Greyson Chance and the rest of the band are planning on a tour in the near future. Whether this tour will be a reunion of sorts or a tour with a new band remains to be seen. For the time being, we will just have to wait and see if Greyson Chance breaks free of his confinement by getting back on stage with Lady Gaga and the other members of the world famous “Gaga Kids.”
Check out the official website for more details on what they are up to for their upcoming tour. Although the internet is abuzz with information about Chance’s coming North American debut single waiting outside, no details have been released about its release date. Hopefully we will learn soon enough if it will be available anywhere soon.
