A SCHOOLGIRL could see her anti-bullying lyrics performed by one of her pop idols after she was on song in a national competition.

Natasha Davison, from Peterlee, spotted the Find Your Voice challenge on Facebook, with the words for her song Just Be You coming to her in 10 minutes.

The contest is fronted by Middlesbrough singer Amelia Lily, who will sing the words.

The competition’s leaders, the BeatBullying charity and Make Mine Milk campaign, say almost 200 entries were sent into the judges, which include the Middlesbrough singer and a team from magazine Shout.

Votes are being taken on the Make Mine Milk Facebook page, with entries closing on Monday.

The 16-year-old, who goes to The Acacemy at Shotton Hall, said: “When I got the call to say I was in the top five, I was so excited.

“The voting has been extended, so I hope to get as many as I can before it closes.

“I wrote this from my own experiences as well as other peoples.”

Amelia said: “I selected the five finalists from a shortlist and I was really moved by the entries.

“Bullying affects so many young people and can have a devastating effect on their lives.

“So it’s great to be able to do something that encourages people to take a stand against it, which I hope Find Your Voice will.”
