Edmond singer/songwriter/pianist Greyson Chance’s video for Google’s “Demo Slam,” in which the company demonstrates the use of its mobile products, is online at YouTube and at demoslam.com. The video features Chance visiting several Oklahoma City attractions last week.
The 13-year-old Internet music sensation faces off against nerd rockers Weezer in demonstrating Google Voice Search at www.demoslam.com. Fans can vote for either Greyson or Weezer in the “Demo Slam.”
Greyson made a whirlwind tour of Oklahoma City on Dec. 23, singing Christmas songs at various locales as he filmed the Google promotional video.
After shooting at his Edmond home, the musician made his first stop around lunchtime at Epworth Villa Retirement Community, where he was joined by a group of Edmond and Deer Creek teens in singing “Deck the Halls” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” in the dining room. Along with the brief surprise performance, the 80 or so residents in attendance got a behind-the-scenes look at the process of making the promo video.
Greyson then visited Quail Springs Mall, the Devon Ice Rink and Bricktown Christmas tree to do more singing and filming.
The YouTube video features scenes at Epworth Villa, the ice skating rink at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, the Christmas tree at Bricktown Plaza and the mall, where Chance duets with Santa Claus.
