Greyson Chance is known as one of the most successful YouTube stars out there. To thank his fans for making him huge, he did what any good-natured artist would do: help out a fellow musician!
Hosting the “Find Your Voice” Facebook contest, Greyson set out to find an aspiring artist to spend the day with, and give them the star treatment. The winner would also win funding for a Yamaha instrument of their choice, as well as a year of free music lessons, and several other valuable assets to help further their music career!
Voted on by fans, the choices were narrowed down to six finalists. A group of industry professionals then selected the winner. Evan Johnson was chosen to meet Greyson and experience this once-in-a-lifetime chance. He got to record in the studio where Michael Jackson recorded “Thriller” and see what it was like to live the dream he, one day, hopes to accomplish.
We’re super-stoked for Evan, we hope that he now has everything he needs to make his dreams a reality, and we’re glad that Greyson gave a hopeful young artist the chance to become a star!
