These kids are paying it forward, to other kids

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The show is about to go on at the Carrolwood Players Theater.

Deb Kelley's "Life Amplified" showcase will be singing, dancing and acting to help raise money for the children's charity "bricks for the brave."

"It's extremely important. I mean, if you can help the community, why wouldn't you? Deb said. "I pretty much live by pay it forward."

The upcoming show is her fifth showcase, and it's an extra special event. It's all about kids helping kids. From the emcee to the talent, no one is older than 17 year old.

"We've got really talented kids, and it's going to be a really fun time," she said. "It's something they may not be able to see otherwise."

Nine-year-old actress and comedian Nicole Baum is headlining Saturday's show. She's happy to help raise money for a local charity and loves the spotlight.

"I love the applause, the standing ovation, the laughter, I love to suck it up," Nicole said.

And boy, does she have jokes.

"I asked my dad the other day why I was an only child, and he said smart people learn from their mistakes," she said.

All jokes aside, "Life Amplified" is raising money for a very important cause. The local chapter of "bricks for the brave" donates Lego's to patients at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital. And who better to run the organization than a kid. Eleven-year-old Logan Agnew has been delivering Lego's for the past two years.

"It's great to be able to do and help anyway I can," Logan said.

Logan is also emceeing the event. His goal is to collect as many Lego's as possible before his next delivery. As for Nicole, she's got even bigger plans for the future.

"World domination! But a TV show would be fine," Nicole joked.

You can watch Nicole and the rest of the cast in the "Kidz Helping Kidz" showcase Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
