Yesterday (May 21) at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood, CA, Nick Cannon was the Host with the Most as Twenty-Nine Los Angeles Unified Schools had sent their biggest and best on-campus stars to compete in a head-to-head battle to determine the district’s best singers,dancers, musicians, visual artists and spoken word performers at the Beyond the Bell Take Action Leadership Campaign event.
Competition winners received scholarships, awards and prizes awarded by various celebrities including event host Nick, former American Idol contestant Allison Iraheta, Singer Dawn Richard of Dirty Money, and current reigning America’s Best Dance Crew Champions Poreotics to name a few.
Ncredible artists The School Gyrls, The Wonder Broz, The Rangers & Colette Carr rocked the stage despite technical difficulties.
“I loved to perform when I was a teen so I know how important it is for young people to have opportunities to be inspired and to share their gifts with the world,” says Nick Cannon. “There are so many talented kids out there that are like celebrities in the circles they travel in. The great thing about this event is that it really gives them an opportunity to shine, to inspire others and to have something to look forward to.”
Now in its 4th year, Beyond the Bell’s Take Action Leadership Campaign is a district-wide initiative to utilize after school and in-school activities and programming as a vehicle to reduce violence, increase attendance, improve grades and prepare students for college and the job market.
