Glass Street LIVE! Books Its 1st National Act, East Chattanooga Trio Citi Limitz

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Glass Street LIVE 2019 Steering Committee in partnership with Glass House Collective have just announced their first national act to be on the entertainment stage at the annual Block Party happening Saturday, Nov. 9 from noon-5 p.m. Citi Limitz, a trio of teen cousins from East Chattanooga who broke big recently when they appeared as part of the Ellen DeGeneres Show in September, are coming back from publicity trips to Los Angeles and New York City to perform for the neighborhood.

Dre, Marion, and AT have been singing together all of their young lives, but only took the leap and formed Citi Limitz three years ago. Marion and AT are twin brothers and Dre is their cousin.

“We are so lucky to have secured Citi Limitz to perform at Glass Street Live on Nov. 9 as part of an amazing lineup of entertainment happening all afternoon. Let’s all celebrate their new success and positive message at the block party,” said Glass House Collective Executive Director Teal Thibaud. 

"The members of Citi Limitz are not only talented, they are also good role models. The teens told Ellen Degeneres they wanted to be successful as long as they could also help their community and others such as the homeless. After telling Ellen that they were selling their CDs in local gas stations, Ellen presented each member with a check for $10,000 to put toward their careers and communities," officials said.

Homegrown talent is what Glass Street LIVE is all about. The Entertainment Committee has booked a line up of nearly 40 socially-conscious local rappers, poets, hip hop artists, spoken word artists dancers and gospel singers, mostly all from East Chattanooga and surrounding neighborhoods. A special Glass Street History Performance Art experience featuring spoken word, choreography and original music will be presented, thanks to a NeighborRoots Grant from Public Art Chattanooga. Organizers say that all of the performers booked at the block party this year have their hearts and minds on improving themselves and the community around them. Everyone was selected not only for their individual talent, but also for their community-driven values and support of other projects moving the community forward. 

Now in its 6th year, Glass Street LIVE! is a true community event steered by resident-led committees. The family friendly event takes place at the intersection of Glass Street and North Chamberlain Avenue and features a kid zone with a bounce house and live wrestling, a marketplace showcasing local food, art, businesses, pop up boutiques and an interactive Glass Street History Exhibit. 

Citi Limitz Rave reviews: “each member of the ensemble is an amazing lead singer;” “Huge talent in these guys, plus kindness and character;" "God has gifted them with beautiful talent and more;” “great music and great young men! Role models!”
