Local Singer Takes Stance Against Bullying During Concert At High School In South Philadelphia
By John McDevitt
PHILADLEPHIA (CBS) - A group of local performers will get together to take a stance against bullying during a family friendly concert at a South Philadelphia high school Saturday night.
The concert is called “Philly Pop Invasion.”
One of the singers is South Philly’s own Felicia Punzo who will perform her song “I’m Just A Kid” which is about her own experiences with being bullied.
“As I was younger, I started doing things musically and people didn’t like it that much. They were bullying me for that. Not bullying me for personal reasons more or less, [but] because I was doing something I loved. And that’s what I promote. I make sure that kids feel comfortable doing something that they love. Don’t listen to people,” she explains.
The “Philly Pop Invasion” concert will take place at Neuman Goretti High School Saturday night at 10th and Moore in South Philadelphia.
It starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are available at the door for $20 each.
