Lil Romeo will be ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Growing up in front the camera Lil Romeo has accomplished an abundance of goals with his dad, rap icon Percy Miller as his guide in the rap game. Rapper Lil Romeo recently was picked to be a contestant in “Dancing with the Stars” alongside Wendy Williams, Chris Jericho, Kendra Wilkinson, Kirstie Alley, Chelsea Kane and Romeo’s partner, Chelsie Hightower.

Lil Romeo was picked to take part of a previous season, but had to drop out due to a leg injury; his dad Percy Miller took his place. He will participate in “Dancing with the Stars” season 12, not just to dance, but to dance for a cause. Romeo wants to utilize this platform to speak to our youth.

“This is a great opportunity for me to get the message out that we have to save our children, it is not okay that we have this happening in America,” Romeo told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Without an education, you choices are limited.

“Unfortunately, teens lose enormous earning potential by not getting a high school diploma,” Romeo continued. “Dropouts earn $9,200 less per year than high school graduates and more than $1 million less over a lifetime than college graduates. Reducing the dropout rate not only makes sense for individual students, it also makes strong economic sense for the nation.”

Lil Romeo has starred in his own hit Nickelodeon Show “Romeo!” and sold over 10 million records across the globe.
