Lizzie Sider Fights Bullying With Florida School Tour
Country singer Lizzie Sider might only be 15 years old, but she is already taking a stand for a cause that is important to her. The Florida native is traveling to schools all over her native state, on her No One Has the Power to Ruin Your Day anti-bullying tour.
"Bullying doesn't just happen in October during Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, it happens all year," the teenager explains "As someone who understands what it is like to be bullied, I am on a mission to help anyone who doesn't think anyone will listen."
As part of the assembly, Sider shares her own personal story of being teased in elementary school. She also performs her song, 'Butterfly,' which she co-wrote as a way to cope with her own pain from dealing with bullies.
Sider, whose performing credits include opening for Gloriana, Jamie O'Neal and Aaron Tippin, has also been sharing her powerful message on national TV. She has appeared on 'The Queen Latifah Show' and 'Access Hollywood,' Hallmark's 'Home & Family' show and Nashville's 'Crook & Chase.'
A full list of her upcoming school appearances is available here. The songstress expects to release a full-length album later this year.
