During January and February, she visited 65 schools, carrying her message to more than 30,000 students. As a spokesperson for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, Lizzie is uniquely qualified for her mission: she was teased and ridiculed during her elementary school years. During these presentations the 15-year-old singer/songwriter tells her story, counsels that “nobody has the power to ruin your day,” and asks kids to work together to prevent the tragedy that is bullying. The rising star ends each 30 to 40-minute appearance with a performance of her Top 40 Country hit song/video “Butterfly” (a song about Lizzie’s experiences she wrote with Jamie O’Neal), the distribution of awareness bracelets, and a long autograph session. Including last fall’s 100-school California assembly tour, Lizzie has reached a total of 70,000-plus students with her powerful message.
The universal appeal of Sider’s music and the impact of her message have brought the media spotlight to bear on this engaging entertainer. Lizzie’s popularity has resulted in recent appearances on the Queen Latifah show, The Daily Buzz Emotional MOJO segment, Fox 35 Orlando and a feature in last week’s issue of Country Weekly magazine, further expanding her reach.
