It was a banner 2010 for 13-year-old Edmondite Greyson Chance, whose piano-pop skills were thrust into the spotlight via a school performance that caught fire on YouTube.
He’ll play two charity concerts for Children’s Miracle Network of Oklahoma, 1 and 7 p.m. Saturday at Edmond Santa Fe High School, 1901 W. 15th in Edmond.
OKG: How is your daily life different now?
Chance: Life is a lot different! But I am loving every minute of it.
My friends nor family treat me differently; I am still Greyson. My schedule is usually very busy, but like I said, I love it!
OKG: Do you feel any pressure to succeed, given your sudden, massive scale of exposure?
Chance: Not really. I try to have a positive attitude towards everything.
If I am positive, the outcome should be positive.
OKG: Do you plan on making a career of it?
Chance: Of course! I am touring and working on the record as we speak.
This has always been my dream. I am trying my hardest and the longest I can to reach that ultimate level.
OKG: You’ve already met Lady Gaga. Anyone else you would like to meet, collaborate or tour with?
Chance: Taylor Swift. She is such a incredible pop icon and such an amazing songwriter. She seems like a very sweet girl.
