TLC’s Chilli Does The “Nae Nae” Dance With Middle School Students
Grammy Award-winning singer surprises students with Reeboks and teen group We Are Toonz
Chilli recognized four Eagles Landing Middle School students who were selected by the Principal for their citizenship and community service setting a positive example for their peers. Reebok gifted these exemplary students with a pair of sneakers from their new collection. “I think it's important to reward kids to keep them motivated," Chilli said. "Yes we should reward good grades but we should also reward great character." The students had no idea Chilli had another huge surprise to celebrate their hard work. As the deejay (World Famous G-Mack) dropped the beat for the popular dance craze “The Nae Nae,” the group We Are Toonz ran out onto the gym floor. In their excitement the kids stood up in the stands and danced “The Nae Nae” along with Chilli and We Are Toonz.
Following the dance performance, students from each grade had a chance to battle each other for the best “Nae Nae”. Chilli and the group gave out prizes to the kids sponsored by V-103 Atlanta and rolling out Magazine. The singer also gifted Eagles Landing Middle School an autographed poster to frame as a reminder for the students to continue to do their best in school and serve as positive examples. The spring testing kick off assembly ended with students hugging and thanking Chilli for the unforgettable morning. Chilli’s Crew Day at Eagles Landing Middle School was made possible thanks to Reebok, V-103 Atlanta and rolling out Magazine.
