Known for his starring role on the Cartoon Network’s “Incredible Crew,” the sketch comedy show created by Nick Cannon, 17-year-old Shameik Moore knows the importance of hard work, perseverance, and having an education.
The teen comedian and singer has been working in television and film for the past three years, including appearances on “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” BET’s “Reed Between the Lines,” and a role in “Joyful Noise” with Queen Latifah and Kiki Palmer. He is also featured on the “Incredible Crew” soundtracks, volumes 1 and 2. He is currently in the studio, recording tracks for his debut album.
“It is not always enough to have talent,” says Shameik. “You also have to have skills, which come from training and education. An education is as important to the success of a performer as it is for any other profession.”
Shameik is sharing his experiences with other students by joining V-103’s Lil Bankhead for the “Stop Playin’ with School” Tour. With the tour, Shameik is speaking to students at Career Day events, urging young people to stay in school, while also speaking with them about all of the aspects of being a professional actor and singer.
At Criterion-References Competency Tests ( CRCT) Pep Rallies at elementary and middle schools in the Atlanta area, Shameik will be performing his single, “Rock Wit Me,” to get students excited and pumped up for the tests.
