An anti-bullying campaign will visit Harris Academy Battersea next week.

CeCe Sammy, a celebrity vocal coach and mentor to rising stars of The X Factor and The Voice, will bring her campaign to Harris Academy Battersea, Battersea Park Road on Wednesday, April 17.

The music tour is part of a programme called The Power of Muzik, which has been created to empower and inspire young people through music education.

The programme was created by CeCe with input from Ben Ofoedu, of Phats and Small and is supported by children’s charity Barnardo’s.

The campaign includes three emerging artists from the UK who will perform a selection of motivating and inspiring pop songs along with original material to encourage open conversation around bullying.

Artists include Asher Knight, who experienced physical and emotional bullying first hand, Michael Rice, the winner of the BBC’s latest singing contest All Together Now and former X Factor contestant Luena Martinez.

The collective will perform anti-bullying single Bruised, written exclusively for the tour by Dantae Johnson and produced by Oscar nominated Pete Boxsta Martin, with all proceeds of the sale of the single going to Barnardo’s.

During the concerts artist will share their own inspiring personal experiences of bullying, and how they overcame adversity and conquered their fears through the power of music.

CeCe Sammy said: “Bullying is an ongoing problem in Britain’s schools; the Anti Bullying Tour acts as a platform to enable and encourage more open discussion around bullying between young people.

“There are so many types of bullying and one of main aims of the tour is to encourage open conversation about the topic so that young people never feel alone.

“Asher, Michael and Luena are inspiring brave young people and I’m extremely proud to have them on the tour. You can really sense that the students walk away from the concerts with a more positive and optimistic outlook and energy”.

The Anti Bullying tour follows research from The Department of Education from July 2016 which revealed that 40 percent of young people have been bullied within the last 12 months, with the majority reporting this happens at least partly in school.

The Anti Bullying Tour is supported by children’s charity Barnardo’s and has reached more than10,000 students to date in more than 20 schools. All proceeds of the sale of Bruised will go to Barnardo’s to help support and transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children.
