BET has just announced its nominees for this years award ceremony. Among the many categories is one set aside for young celebrities.
All of these little ones are admirable in their talents and their many successes. At such a young age, we have no choice but to have high hopes for them in the future! They are truly inspiring figures.
At just 18 years old, Gabby has made a name for herself as the first African-American gymnast to win the individual all-around Gold medal. As part of the women’s team at the 2012 Summer Olympics she also took home Gold for team all-around, which makes her the first American to win both.
This 17 year old is a singer, dancer, and actor. He has been pursuing his music career for quite some time, and even performed on a “Most Talented Kids” episode of Maury in 2006. His most recent single is entitled “What are you Waiting For”, and he will appear next in the upcoming sci-fi thriller, The Maze Runner.
The 15-year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith is already a well known actor. His breakout role came in 2006 alongside his father in The Pursuit of Happyness. Since then he has starred in many films and has recently been cast in the upcoming The Good Lord Bird in which he will portray a young slave named Henry.
This is one busy 20 year old. She is an actress, a singer/songwriter, a dancer, and fashion designer, but it doesn’t end there. The starlet is also a talk show host, a philanthropist, and an entrepreneur. She has been pursuing her dreams since 2004 and says “I knew opportunities would pop up if I just kept on trying”.
It’s no surprise to see this 17 year old on the list. This actress and singer has been making waves since her debut in 2009 and has since even wrote an inspiring book of advice for young girls. With a good head on her shoulders, it seems this starlet has nowhere to go but up.
