4.0 out of 5 stars God bless Ellen De Generes, 3 Aug 2011
By 
This review is from: Hold on Til the Night (Audio CD)
In a world where it is becoming increasingly common for great singers to emerge from the youtube phenomenon I think it is becoming more difficult for these singers to really stand out unless they offer something more.

Greyson Chance is a youtube sensation who deserves all the praise being thrown at him. After a highly publicised appearance on the Ellen De Generes show, Greyson would become the first act to be signed to Ellen's newly formed record label. What really makes Greyson stand out is not only his young age but the fact he is not just a voice. It is quite clear he is more vocal about important issues than other peers and it's great to see him not only play the piano but take an active role in the songwriting aspect. There are very few tracks here that do not have a writing credit by Greyson.

Musically this debut is full of great pop tracks with a good emphasis on the piano. I personally feel Ellen's team and Interscope Records have done an extremely good job at pairing Greyson with the right producers and writers here. If you've followed Greyson up to now you will be more than satisfied. If you enjoyed debut single 'Waiting Outside The Lines' you will find plenty more to like here.

Lately I'm definitely seeing a different between being talented and being exceptionally gifted. Greyson clearly fits into the latter.
