In the fall of 2010, Demerious (15 yrs old), Raheem (16 yrs old). Demetrius (17 yrs old), Cameron (17 yrs old), and Stephen (15 years old) met in their high school chorus class. The five boys, instantly recognizing the mutual talent amongst them, decided to form a singing group now known as Limitless 5ive. Their love of music combined with their deep interest in political and social topics fueled their lyrics and harmonies, as the group developed and honed in on their unique sound and style. After performing at several local venues in Orlando, the boys of Limitless 5ive found themselves in a predicament: they would need to purchase equipment of their own (e.g., microphones, speakers, mixers). Their mentor challenged them to come up with a fundraising idea—one that would also have a positive impact on their community. The boys came up with the idea for the single “Let’s Do it Again” and designed a t-shirt to sell to support their efforts. The boys describe “Let’s Do it Again” as a song with old school flavor but a most pressing message: to re-elect President Barack Obama. As such, a portion of profits from t-shirt sales will be donated to President Obama’s re-election campaign. Although young, the boys of Limitless 5ive are no strangers to excellence and hard-work. Their academic achievements combined with their gregarious personalities and ability to shine above the rest, make Limitless 5ive an obvious fan favorite. Demerious, of Orlando, FL, has always been a star pupil and has been in honors math courses throughout high school. Industrious and ambitious, Demerious manages his time and efforts between music and cutting hair on the side, for income. Stephen, of Cincinnati, OH, may be the baby of the bunch, but is no less serious about his academics. He is a straight-A student and takes all advanced level courses. Demetrius, of Indianapolis, Indiana, is an academic powerhouse. Demetrius recently won 1st place with the American Chemical Society in an Earth Day competition. Finally, Raheem, of New Haven, CT, brings an international flavor to the group, as he was raised in Jamaica up until his freshman year when he moved back to the U.S. Limitless 5ive continues to impress audiences not only with their obvious talent, but their socially conscious lyrics that address some of the most pressing issues in their community and beyond.
