Daytime darling and American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres can add another role to her resume – record label mogul.
DeGeneres has now started her own music label and has signed up 12-year-old YouTube phenom Greyson Chance.
Step aside Justin Bieber, there’s a shiny new protege in town who’s guaranteed to give you a decent run for your money.
For those of you living in denial, Greyson is the sixth grader whose cover of Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi became an Internet sensation a few weeks back.
Speaking of her new venture, DeGeneres said: “Greyson … inspired me to start a record label called eleveneleven. He is my first artist and we are making a record together.”
Chance’s musical career will be co-managed by Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, and Lady Gaga’s manager, Troy Carter.
That’s some backing, kid!
And to remind ourselves of just how talented this guy is, check out the video below of him performing one of his self-penned songs, Broken Hearts, on DeGeneres’s show.
