New Video: Chris Grant – ‘Good Night’

Published: Friday 21st Sep 2012 by Sam

At That Grape Juice we’re not just keen to introduce you to new talent, we’re eager to follow their journey. Case, point, rising star Chris Grant.

The acclaimed dancer, who we profiled last year, this week released the video for his debut single, ‘Good Night’.

We caught up with Grant over the phone last week to discuss his journey up to this point. Peep a few excepts below…

On Transitioning From Dancer To Singer:

“I’ve always wanted to be an entertainer, more specifically a singer, from when I was younger. When Michael (Jackson) was alive, I made it my goal to meet him, to dance for him as a back-up dancer. And when I did that during the This Is It Tour (as sad as that ended up being), I feel like that dream had somewhat been fulfilled. So, within myself, I believe it’s the right time to become the performer, the entertainer I’ve always dreamed to be. I’ve also grown so much as a singer since the Making The Band days too. I just want people to see what else I can do beyond dance my ass off (laughs)”.

On His Sound:

“I’m not a Whitney Houston or Luther Vandross type vocalist. That’s not me. I make music that makes you want to move, music that makes you want to dance in the club. Of course, there are other sounds (on my album), but my core is music that inspires you to move. I’m a performer, I want to entertain”.

On His Competition

I really enjoy the music of the Usher‘s and Chris Brown‘s. And yes, we all dance and entertain. But we’re all quite different. Though Chris Brown is Pop-R&B, he leans more towards”House”, while for me I’m a Pop guy. My biggest inspirations are Michael and Janet. So, I draw from them most, as I strive to make my own mark with my own signature.”

***********

We’re liking what we see of Chris and so are the likes of Beyonce (he choreographed her ‘End of Time’ routine) and energy drink’s giant P.u.s.s.y (owned by Richard Branson’s offspring, Holly and Sam).

With ‘Good Night’ due for release on October 1st (click here to pre-order), Grant has set sail on an International promo run, which most recently saw him perform at the Festival Show in Verona, Italy in font of a crowd of 25,000!

As his buzz continues to build, we’re sure his name is one that’ll become etched in mass consciousness. His talent demands it.

      He’s not from the UK. He’s from New York. He was also a contestant on Diddy’s “Making the Band”. The same one that the group Day26 was on.

    Good 4 him…hope he’s bringing something new coz all these Michael Jackson “inspired” artists are not doing anything beyond the imitated dance routines and the so-so vocals

    • terri September 30, 2012

      Excuse me Tricky Garbage…Chris is an accomplished choreographer along with his many talents. You need to do some research before you tell me that he is not more than just an imitator.

    Everybody wanna be like Mike. Just what the music industry needs another Michael Jackson wannabe like we don’t have enough of them already. No thanks

    • margaritaM September 21, 2012

      I need to put these people right! he’s not a wannabe, he’s not tryin gto copy michael, obvs he was an influence, the guy was working with him, but he totes has his own style and he’s doing his own thing, i saw him perform live and theres nothing like it, i aint never seen anything like it!

      • BeBe September 21, 2012

        Like I said WANNABE and I’ll say it again WANNABE!!!

      • Monica September 21, 2012

        All entertainers who copy the king use that word ‘Influenced” lol. Let’s call it what it is copying, no origniality.

    • terri September 23, 2012

      Haters only make him stronger. Some people still haven’t learned “that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” Sorry not everyone can’t appreciate all the hard work he has done to become the entertainer that he is. Jealousy usually rules these people

      • Sally September 26, 2012

        Yes Terri you are right. We both have known about Chris and his talent and he’s the best !!! Seeing him live and getting to know him and his superior performance has been a life-changing experience for me (and you too Terri).
        We know these negative people have no expertise on the subject of Chris and his talent !!!

  12. Bout to slay your ass September 21, 2012

  15. Cori León September 21, 2012

    I’ve been following Chris since MTB days and I can tell y’all he’s a superstar!! He can dance, he can sing and he works so hard! Talent is the word that defines him!! Can’t wait till 1st Oct to blast out ‘Good Night’ in my car!! 😀

  16. BCinKS September 21, 2012

    I think he should stick to dancing. His vocals are not strong enough. There is nothing unique here.

  17. mary September 21, 2012

    When he gets the right song. He will be out of here….
    Great Video…

  18. Kim Ber Lee September 21, 2012

    From the humble guy that tried out on Making the Band he has truly grown. I do not think he would be this phenomenal if he had been limited by Diddy. He is a SPECTACULAR dancer.. while his vocals are a bit average… but nowadays he has what it takes.. I do not see his presence as something other than to entertain.. and that is great… I would like to see his PERSONALITY more.. it would make those dance move shine even more.

  19. SERENA90 September 22, 2012

    i LIKE IT VERY MUCH! MAKES ME WANA DANCE 🙂

  20. terri September 23, 2012

    Great interview Chris! Keep up the hard work…it’s working for you. Waiting here for the next song and video. Oh and as always,,,you dance up a storm!!

  21. JAHRON September 26, 2012

    He’s Incredible!!!!

  22. Sally September 26, 2012

    Love you Chris !!! You are the best !!!
