LINCOLN COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

In this week's High 5 4 Kids, a duo is making a mark in the music industry early. The two are freshmen at TW Josey High School. 

And after competing in The Georgia Student Media Festival, their music video has made it to the state level to compete against other artists across the state. 

"We didn't want to fail and I hate failing," said Lemario Hobbs.

What started as a simple class project, ended up being a gateway for a new beginning.

"It was our first video and we wanted to impress people. We put a lot of work into it and we wish for the best," said Darrion Hershner. 

Darrion Hershner and Lemario Hobbs said they found their love for music early on, and since then, music has been an inspiration.

"Like when you hear the rhythm that you want, it just makes you smile like. You don't even be mad anymore. It's like I got it. It's just there and it makes you happy," said Hobbs.

The duo said when they first wrote the song, they had a lot of doubts, their peers laughed and picked at them saying the video would never place. Weeks later, that all changed.

"It helped us strive for greater things. It helped us keep going . It was motivation," said Hershner.

Both Darrion and Lemario were born and raised in Augusta. They said seeing this great accomplishment early on makes them want to work even harder to make a difference.

"Sometimes you get tired of being in the same spot. Somebody have to make a difference. We can't sit here and just be like 'well, who's going to make the difference?' or just wait on the difference to make itself. You got to make it yourself," said Hobbs. 

Darrion and Lemario will be heading to Atlanta in the next couple of weeks. Although they are hoping for the best, they have already started working on their next project.
