LIZZIE SIDER, 15-year old emerging Country artist,is continuing her tour of elementary and middle schools, by conducting her Bully Prevention Assembly tour in Texas for 70 schools through April and May 2014. The tour, which continues after successful stops in California and Florida, will start on April 9 in Houston and end May 29 in San Angelo. At the completion of the Texas tour, Lizzie will have met with students at 250 schools through the 2013 – 2014 school year.
During the assemblies, Sider will encourage kids to help prevent bullying as she recounts her own personal journey as a young student who was teased. She will also perform her original song “Butterfly,” which Sider co-wrote about her experience and how she overcame the teasing. Sider’s goal is to help kids as a positive role model, having risen above her own ridicule, to pursue a career in music.
“Bullying doesn’t just happen in October during Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, it happens all year,” says Lizzie Sider. “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.
”Sider has been interviewed by Access Hollywood, Billboard, Hallmark’s Home & Family show, TIME for Kids, Nashville’s Crook & Chase, and was named by the Country Music Association as an “Artist to Watch in 2013.” Sider, who splits her time between Boca Raton, FL and Nashville, TN, recently participated in her first CMA Fest week with her own booth and with a live performance at the famed country music venue, The Wildhorse. Both “Butterfly” and Sider’sfollow-up single, “I Love You That Much,” charted in the Top 40 on Music Row. The video for “I Love You That Much” was directed by award-winning Steven Goldmann, whose past credits include Alan Jackson, Martina McBride and Shania Twain. Sider is currently working on her first full-length studio album for release in 2014. For complete Assembly Tour details, please visit www.LizzieSider.com
