Everything I do creatively comes through me and then I go to the management team and we work it out. those kids who sat down and watched the video — kept on watching it, and got on my Twitter and clicked follow and who have supported me — if they like it and this record really heals them and inspires them, then that’s a billion records to me,’’ he says.We understand and respect each other and we respect Greyson Chance as an artist.’’ In addition to his current single, a catchy slice of optimism called “Waiting Outside the Lines,’’ the album will include a collaboration with Nick Jonas. “If I can help somebody with this record who’s going through such a hard time in their life — and I hope I can do this with all my fans — that’s enough for me.When the as-yet-unnamed release arrives, Chance says he won’t define its success by sales figures. If this just went completely nowhere, I would be fine with that, if I’m making the music that I wanted to be making and I’m healing people that need to be healed. It would be great to sell a million records, but you know, sometimes it just doesn’t happen because this business is very rocky.

“I work harder and I think better when I have this pressure on me.
I don’t really feel like it’s this whole big weight on my shoulders.
It’s a lot of working but I’m doing what I love.’’ It can sometimes be lonely work in a world of adults, Chance readily admits of the current whirlwind of touring, recording, and promotional appearances.
Greyson Chance idolizes Lady Gaga, Elton John, and John Lennon.
But it is a fellow singer who was thrust into stardom at a tender age with whom the 13-year-old Internet-propelled music phenom shares a philosophy.
Like Michael Jackson, Chance sincerely wants to heal the world and make it a better place through his music.
On the eve of his second national tour — which includes a sold-out show with Aussie teen sensation Cody Simpson at Showcase Live on April 23 — Chance can scarcely believe that he’s gotten an opportunity to start his healing mission, all because he uploaded a video to You Tube of himself singing and playing a piano ballad version of Gaga’s hit “Paparazzi’’ just about a year ago.
When Chance releases his debut later this year, the junior high schooler from Oklahoma — who is tackling his studies online and with a tutor between work obligations — promises something relatable for all ages, in the pop-rock vein of One Republic and Snow Patrol.
And it will be crafted by the young singer-songwriter himself, just like everything else in his budding career.
“Everybody I work with, they really understand what I’m trying to do with pop music,’’ Chance says.
“I’m on my way to tour rehearsal right now and even the jeans I’m wearing, it’s what I want to be wearing.
