Up-Close & Personal With B5!




For quite some time, Scholastic News Online has been big fans of B5, the fabulous singing brothers from Atlanta, Georgia. Every time we run a feature on Patrick, Dustin, Bryan, Kelly, and Carnell, YOU guys deluge us with great e-mails. Sooo, since we recently hung out with the guys when they were in New York City, we wanted to share some of the goodies we got! As they serenaded us with Beatle songs and stories about their favorite Thanksgiving feasts—turkey, ham, shrimp, lobster, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, and lots more!—the guys filled out some personal stat sheets for us. And here they are!
