American teen sensation Greyson Chance’s Filipino fans will surely like how the young singer-songwriter describes them.
“My Filipino fans (are) very crazy and beautiful,” Greyson said at a fan meet and press conference held on Monday, April 23.
After the loud screams from fans died down, Greyson added, “My Filipino fans, I think you guys go so hard in concerts. You guys go crazy and I really like that a lot.”
Greyson was referring to his second Manila concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sunday, April 22.
Screaming a lot
Greyson can relate to fans as he himself likes to scream a lot and have fun when he attends concerts.
“When I go to the concerts with my friends, they always yell at me, because I’m always like, ‘Yeah!’ I scream a lot and go and have fun. I’m so excited that you guys go completely crazy.”
The 14-year-old artist happily received his platinum award from MCA Music for his album, “Hold On ‘Til the Night."
Despite this and other honors, Greyson stays grounded, thanks to family and friends who keep him company.
“I have a very great family, a very great team around me. I’m just a normal kid with lots of alterations, not much of a different lifestyle. I just do what I love,” he said.
Greyson also tried acting and became a recurring guest star in the TV series “Raising Hope.” He enjoyed the experience and likes acting a lot. But he sees himself more of a musician rather than an actor.
A musician first
“I really like acting a lot and I think I fit that show. But right now, I’m all about music. So, that’s how I see myself for the next years.”
“I think I’m a better musician than an actor. And that’s where I always go back to everyday and that’s my natural calling,” Greyson said.
He expresses himself artistically through “writing songs and performing.”
Greyson added that he will continue to evolve as an artist through writing songs based on his experiences and people he meets.
Although many see him as a role model, Greyson said he doesn’t call himself as one, but will always be a good influence to his fans.
“I don’t necessarily call myself a role model. I know kids look up to me. But I think I’m gonna teach my fans what I think are great for them to learn and I’ll give positive messages as always,” Greyson explains.
