Teen stars pop by school for show

COURTLAND—Students at Riverdale Elementary School were given a treat Friday: a special performance by the teen pop group, No Limit.

No Limit, which mixes pop and country music with choreography, is composed of five performers between the ages of 13 and 16. They are also all honor students.

“We like putting out a positive message, that there’s no limit to what you can do,” said singer Celeste Kellogg, a 15-year-old student at Smithfield High School.

Ashton Harrell, a 13-year-old student at First Light Middle School in North Carolina, is the only boy in the group.

“I’m a singer more than a dancer, but I try to move as much as possible,” Harrell said before the show started. “Singing is my main focus right now.”

When the group took to the floor of the school’s multipurpose room shortly after 1 p.m., the students thundered.

“We’re so privileged for them to be here, and we’re so excited to have them,” said PTA member Michelle Buchanan as she introduced the teens. “We’re going to rock out Riverdale today.”

According to the group’s Web site, No Limit formed in April 2007. Kellogg and Harrell performed for a year with Radio Disney, opened for the Jonas Brothers and Raven, and have also performed on the Kelly Clarkson “Addicted to Love Tour,” and the Cheetah Girls/Hannah Montana Concert.

Kellogg, Harrell and a third member of the group, Danielle Hill, recently returned from Nashville after filming the movie “Much Ado About Middle School.” They also recorded songs for the movie, which was directed by David Moody and is currently in post-production. The movie is scheduled to be released in October.
