Kids Do The Damn Thing: Noah McCullough & Elijah Johnson

I ran across a couple stories over the past few days about some incredible young people. One such youngster is Noah McCullough. Noah is a published author at the age of 13! His passion for the White House and all things related led him to write his first book on presedential trivia and his most recent offering focuses on the first kids. Noah's latest, First Kids: The True Stories of All the Presidents’ Children, explores the lives of Presidential children and showcases their triumphs and struggles. Noah plans to run for President himself, but not until 2032 ( when he turns 37). Check out Noah's book on Amazon.

Also in the news is Detroit native, Elijah Johnson. Elijah is a 10 year student at Friends School in Detroit, who has always been active in school plays and in his church choir. Well, all that focus on the arts has paid off because Elijah has just been cast as Simba in the award winning stage adaptation of Disney's "The Lion King." After being chosen form nearly 600 other young actors, Elijah will travel this week to his new home of Las Vegas, NV to prepare for his role as Simba for an engagement of 6 months. Johnson will begin performing nightly at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in May. Get your tickets at Ticketmaster.
