Exclusive: Mitchel Musso, Tiffany Thornton, Kicking Daisies And More At The 2010 Tween Summit
Our tween reporter Victoria did an awesome job interviewing the celebrities at the 2010 AllyKatzz Tween Summit 'DM'ing For Change' concert at NYU's Skirball Center on Sunday night in New York City.
Monique Coleman hosted the show which featured performances from Kicking Daisies, Mitchel Musso, Tiffany Thornton, Fefe Dobson and teens from Renaissance EMS!
"This time in your life is especially important because this is the time when the decisions you make are going to change the rest of your life," Monique told a crowd of several hundred tween and teen girls. "And if you make the right decisions, you too can be standing right here on this stage."
It wasn't always an easy road for Monique who revealed to JSYK's tween reporter Victoria that she was bullied when she was in school, "Yeah actually, in middle school I was pushed against the lockers a few times."
Fefe Dobson was another one of the Tween Summit acts who opened up to Victoria and told her about how when she was younger, she messed up singing Canada's National Anthem and ran off stage. Luckily she didn't have that problem at the Summit. Her performance of 'I Want You' and 'Stuttering' were great. Check them out below.
Kicking Daisies was awesome as well! The two boy and two girl group made up of Duran, Caitlin, Ben and Carly sat down with Victoria and performed their hit 'Keeping Secrets.' "We knew this would be a wonderul chance to get our music out to new fans and new people," Duran said. Consider us one of the new fans. We loved them.
Mitchel Musso was the act that practically everyone was was telling us they were excited to see. "This is what I've wanted to do my whole life," he told JSYK's tween reporter. He pumped up the crowd with his songs 'Shout It' and 'Celebrate.'
His "homie" Tiffany Thornton was also at the summit and she performed too. She sang 'Sure Feels Like Love' and 'Kiss Me' and told us that when she was little she actually wanted to be a model, actress, and a singer.
There was also a cool performance by Renaissance EMS, a group from the Bronx comprised of 18 kids ages 8-22, who sing, play instruments, dance, rap, and recite poetry. They opened up the show and killed it!
