The Teen Nation Tour visits Detroit for the first time ever
PRLog - Apr. 22, 2014 - DETROIT -- The Teen Nation Tour (http://www.teennationtour.com/) – a year-long anti-bullying campaign and concert tour featuring teen recording artists – will perform for the first time in Michigan at 11 metro Detroit area schools reaching more than 10,000 students and Administrators starting April 25 through May 6.

The Teen Nation Tour is like no other anti-bullying effort. Young, talented recording artists travel the nation performing, educating, and empowering peers through music and personal stories. On weekends, the tour holds public concerts without the anti-bullying message at non-school venues such as malls, theaters, and more.

The school program is 90 minutes of engaging content. Students learn about bullying (http://www.teennationtour.com/) types, prevention, where to turn when it occurs, and more. The campaign is effective because the artists approach this important topic by relating to youth on their own level, sharing personal experiences and offering tips on how together they can stand and defend against bullying.

Headlining the metro Detroit tour is former ‘X Factor’ contestant J Ryan (http://www.jryanofficial.com/), 14, of San Antonio, Texas; and Tristan Blaine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8oqQWqsLr0), 14, of Frisco, Texas. Additional guest performers include Nic Neufeld (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MnzgM39RTc), 11, of Dodsland, Saskatchewan; Faith Marie Shirley (https://twitter.com/realfaithmarie), 15 of San Antonio, Texas; Collin Kozola (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Collin-Kozola/194876177261238), 17, of Naperville, Ill.; Katie Akin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1A1TMipPr58), 14, of Atlanta, GA; and Kaity Floyd (http://kaityfloyd.com/), 20, of Dallas.
