This kid lives and breathes music, and he’s always on the prowl for new challenges to separate him from the bigger fish in the pond ([lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Willow Smith[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Bieber[/lastfm]).  Recently [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Greyson Chance[/lastfm], who became popular after his rendition of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]’s “Paparazzi” went viral, was invited to’s Mashup Mondays to perform [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm]’s and[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Alicia Keys[/lastfm] New York anthem, “Empire State of Mind” in his “dramatic classical-meets-vocal style.” The end result? A  jaw-dropping performance.

When asked why he picked “Empire State Of Mind” the 13-year old pianist responded, “I picked ‘Empire State Of Mind’ because it’s obviously out of my element. It’s an R&B song, Jay-Z is rapping on it. I heard it right when it came out and I fell in love with it.”
