Lizzie Sider, a fifteen-year-old budding country music star, is touring elementary and middle schools and conducting a Bully Prevention Assembly at over one hundred schools during January, February, and March of 2014, throughout the entire State of Florida.
During the thirty to forty minute assembly, Sider will encourage kids to help prevent bullying as she recounts her own personal journey as a young student being teased and ridiculed in elementary school, what it felt like, and how she worked through the hard times. In addition, Sider will discuss the importance of everyone standing up to stop bullying. She will also perform her original song “Butterfly,” which Sider co-wrote about her experiences and how she overcame bullying in her own life. Her goal is to help kids as a positive role model, having risen above her own ridicule.
Sider, who splits her time between Boca Raton, Florida and Nashville, Tennessee, recently participated in her first CMA Music Fest week with her own booth and with a live performance at country music venue, the Wildhorse Saloon. Both “Butterfly” and her follow-up single, “I Love You That Much,” charted in the Top 40 on MusicRow. 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.
