I wanted to let you know that the talk of me doing a music solo project after Jump5 is completely… TRUE!! I am so excited about the project. I am still going to be studying acting it’s a passion I have had for a long time. I have had the question ‘after Jump5 where can we keep up with your solo stuff’ a lot lately and here is my answer.

Jump5 has released their first interactive game, VideoDirector. When playing VideoDirector, the player is the director of the newest video and stage performance for Jump5. They can select the stage and props, set-up the cameras, lights, and cool effects. Then they get the group in to choreograph their dance moves. Finally, the performance begins and they are in control of the cameras. PLUS, an additional Karaoke feature allows users to sing along to Jump5 tracks and playback the performance. VideoDirector is now available at a major retailer near you.
Tommy2.net has posted an all new video featuring Christmas Greetings and Traditions from: Everlife, former DreamStreet member Greg Raposo, Lalaine, J-Me, Jump5, and Tessa Ludwick from the Disney Channel.
Lesley Moore of Jump5 has been suffering from mono for the past few weeks and posted an update on her condition at the group’s official website. Moore writes, “I thought that it might be a good time to update you on how I’m feeling and what the doctor has to say about my condition. Personally, I think I am ready to get back on the road, but the doctors won’t agree with me. I have to go to the doctor every week to get my blood drawn. I think I have gotten it drawn at least 6 times since I became sick. You should see the bruises on my arms from where they drew my blood. By the time one bruise goes away, I get my blood drawn again and the bruise is back. I am to the point now that the doctor says I can leave the house and go to eat, and even walk around a little bit. My blood work is improving each week but still isn’t enough to let me dance around and goof off on stage. I hope I will get to see you guys soon, and I’m doing everything I can to get well. Thank you guys for all the emails, cards, and what nots. They really cheered me up!”
Katrillion spoke with Jump5’s Leslie following the group’s performance for the president of the United States recently. Leslie admitted of the President and First Lady, “They were so humble. They were very welcoming. I’ve never been more nervous, and they put me at ease. It was the first time I was all shaky. I was so nervous — it was a dream come true. They were winking and giving us the thumbs up.”
