“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.MORE NEWS: Chick-Fil-A Earns Top Spot For Customer Satisfaction In America For Eighth Straight Year: Report
