Wolverhampton singer Amy G goes back to school
Wolverhampton singer Amy G will be heading back into the classroom over the next few months helping youngsters to stay safe online.
The former The Ticket Unsigned star, who has previously released singles to raise money for charities, continues her work for others by signing up to provide safety talks to primary school and high school pupils as part of her new contract with Universal Talent Group.
The tour begins this month and will run until July, taking Amy to schools across the country from the West Midlands to London, Liverpool and Manchester.
Each visit will include a safety talk, a meet and greet session and a performance of tracks from her EP Blueprint, which came out last year.
"I am touring around the UK to many primary and high schools to educate the students on cyber bullying, internet safety, discrimination and British law," she told the Express & Star. "The tour is covering Walsall, Coventry, Liverpool, Manchester and London.
"I am part of the talent agency Universal Talent Group, who also have former X factor stars Georgia Burgess and Sam Bailey as acts. They have helped confirm this school tour.
"With the rise of crime in the UK I am looking forward to educating the students on what can happen when cyber bullying or discrimination gets out of hand, teaching them on how to stay within the British law and reminding them of the negative effects of terrorism. There has been a rise of cyber bullying according to Childline, so this is something I want to tackle.
"My meeting with these students will also involve a 20-minute performance plus a meet and greet. My aim will be to inspire the children with my music and advise them about the industry and answer any questions they want to know about getting into music as a career.
"I also want this to tour to help victims speak out and inspire bullies to stop. The statement I want to preach is 'act on it, do not be a part of it'."
