  • Meet the Boys of 4Count: Aaron Scott

    Posted on 06/25/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    4Count: Adam

    Say "hello" to Aaron Scott! He's 1/4 of 4Count, a total heartthrob and the next guy we're getting to know before Mission: 4Count premieres on July 6th!

    Aaron was born in Texas, but grew up in California and has been performing and entertaining pretty much his whole life. His love for music, in fact, started in middle school when he picked up a pair of sticks became the drummer at his church. *Ba dum tsh*

    Soon enough, Aaron wanted to expand his horizons and try his hand at singing and dancing. Turns out, he was pretty good at both because when Aaron auditioned for 4Count, it only took one hour for Nick Cannon to call him with the good news. Now, along with Adam, Kieran and Ben, Aaron has three band members and three brothers. (Awwwwwwww.)

    A few quick bits about Aaron:

    Go-To Serenade Song: "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon

    Worst Pick-Up Line Fail: ''Recently, I saw a girl hanging out by herself and I was like, 'Are you waiting on your friends or something?' And she was like, 'Nope. My husband.' [Flashes wedding ring.]"

    Did you know? Aaron was the mascot for his school's football team!

  • Tatum Parker Brings Backpacks Filled with Fun to Kids with Cancer

    Posted on 06/15/2015 by TeenNickBlogger
    HALO Effect: Tatum Parker

    When HALO Effect honoree Tatum Parker was six years old, she was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Ewing's Sarcoma. Her year-long stay in the hospital included three major surgeries and thirteen courageous rounds of chemotherapy, which eventually wiped out the cancer. A year and a half later, however, it returned. Once again powering through intensive treatment, Tatum beat cancer for a second time and remains cancer-free today!

    During her time in the hospital, Tatum found comfort in a bag of toys she received from the from the Gabby Krause Foundation. The "Bag of Fun," which included games and activities, lifted her spirits during those long and difficult days in treatment. The gift had such a positive impact on her, she decided to pay forward.

    And that's how Tatum's Bags of Fun was born.

    Today, Tatum's Bags of Fun delivers toys and games to every pediatric cancer patient in Indiana. And while these bags help pass the time with fun activities, they are so much more than just toys -- they help build hope and foster strength to kids who need and deserve it most. At just 14, Tatum has built a charity that has not only served many kids across Indiana, but has succeeded in fundraising and spreading the message that a little fun and positivity can help make a painful journey just a bit lighter.

    Tatum embodies the core idea of Help and Leading Others: She turned a personal and life-changing experience into a thoughtful and truly impactful movement. Now, that's incredibly cool.
