The 11-year-old Milwaukee native kicked off the school’s “Reading First” program
It was all screams and cheers at Clayton County’s G.W. Northcutt Elementary School pep rally last week, as kid R&B performer Jacob Latimore took center stage. The 11-year-old Milwaukee native kicked off the school’s “Reading First” program with a series of upbeat songs and pop-locking moves. And, of course, a few words about the importance of reading. “‘The Cat in the Hat’ was my favorite book when I was smaller,” said the diminutive singer addressing 600 adoring students. “Reading helps me with my music, my lyrics - everything.” Now, if only reading could help Jacob fend off 5th grade girls!
