Hot Chelle Rae, who just won the best new artist award at the American Music Awards, will be playing a charity concert for a Las Vegas school to help fight school bullying.
According to the Washington Post, the Las Vegas Southwest Career and Technical Academy won the charity concert after an anti-bullying contest. Students signed an anti-bullying pledge and voted for their school for the Flip the Script School Takeover Contest.
Hot Chelle Rae’s Ryan Follese said.
“We are stoked to be part of such cool concert events, particularly during this holiday season and at such an exciting time in our lives. Our music is all about having fun and feeling good about being yourself and being an individual, so we are naturally excited about these opportunities to support kids who deal with these issues every day.”
PopCrush reports that Hot Chelle Rae will be playing another anti-bullying concert on December 9th. Hot Chelle Rae will join Lady Gaga and other artists for the Z100 Jingle Ball in NYC. The Jingle Ball has partnered with STOMP Out Bullying, a national anti-bulling program for kids and teens.
