Five years before their audition, Avery Winter, Brooklyn Elbert and Kassidy King met at the Cactus Theater in Lubbock, Texas and quickly formed a group. Though they weren't even old enough to start kindergarten, they began performing regularly at the theater and throughout West Texas for audiences as large as 80,000 people. They have become best friends, and when they aren't singing, they love hanging out at sleepovers or shopping. They dream of touring the world together and meeting Justin Bieber. 1
