Youth and Army ROTC Day will feature R&B/pop artist and actor Jacob Latimore.
By the time the singer/dancer turned nine years old, Latimore could emulate the choreography of Motown sensations The Temptations and boy band group B2K.   In 2011, he released “Like ‘Em All,” which featured Diggy Simmons and catapulted him into the spotlight.  Latimore then released the “Like ‘Em All” remix featuring Issa which peaked at #1 on Black Entertainment Television’s “106 & Park.” This year, he toured alongside Mindless Behavior, Diggy Simmons, Hamilton Park and The OMG Girlz in the Scream Tour: The Next Generation (NXG).  He also toured the #1 Girl Tour with Mindless Behavior.


In November 2013, Latimore will appear on the big screen in the leading role in “Black Nativity,” featuring Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Tyrese Gibson. In 2014, Latimore will make an appearance in “Ride Along with screenwriter and film producer Ice Cube and actor and comedian Kevin Hart. Continuing to advance his resumé and deliver high quality work, Latimore just completed filming the new action thriller “Maze Runners” - which is scheduled for release February 2014.
