LIZZIE SIDER TO BE HONORED BY HATEBRAKERS AS A HATEBRAKER HERO
COUNTRY SINGER/SONGWRITER LIZZIE SIDER TO BE HONORED AT SECOND ANNUAL HATEBRAKER HEROES EVENT IN ST. LOUIS 
St. Louis, MO (May 1, 2014) LIZZIE SIDER,
15-year old emerging country artist, will be honored as a HateBraker
Hero at the second annual HateBraker Heroes Awards on Monday, May 19 at
the Hilton Frontenac in St. Louis, Missouri.  During the ceremony, Sider
will be the featured entertainer where she will
perform her original song, “Butterfly,”
which she co-wrote about her own experiences of being teased,
ridiculed, and excluded by other children and how she overcame the pain.
Lizzie, who has family
ties to St. Louis, is being honored for her work in helping others to
transcend the horrors of being bullied, and for her own moral courage to
have become a leader and a role model, in the quest to raise awareness
of, and to help stop bullying.  In her efforts to promote bullying
prevention, Lizzie has toured schools in California and Florida to
present assemblies in which she shares her own personal stories of
teasing with students.  It is during these assemblies that Lizzie
imparts her message that above all else “Nobody has the power to ruin
your day!”  Starting April 9, the tour continued into Texas schools.  At
the end of the 2013 – 2014 school year, Lizzie will have met with
nearly 100,000 students.
Says Susan Balk, Founding Director of HateBrakers
“Lizzie mustered the courage to rise above bullying and tell her story
to the world.  Whenever a room full of children hear her sing
“Butterfly,” about how she stopped hiding and learned to fly, they
understand that they can do it too.  She’s a powerhouse of healing, and
she’s not even old enough to drive!”
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, is gearing up to participate in her
second CMA Music Fest week this June with her own booth and live
performances on the Roadhouse Stage and at the Bluebird Café.  Both “Butterfly” and Sider’sfollow-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.
