Singer performs for students

27th February 2023

Singer/songwriter Natalie Gray was at MVC today to perform for Years 8, 9 and 10 and talk about mental-health related issues.
She performed two songs and shared her messaging around being an ally of the LGBTQ+ community, how suppressing feelings or events in life can cause longer term issues and the importance of being kind to oneself and others. Her anti bullying messages were very strong as she speaks from her own experiences at school. 
Having had her own struggles with body image and mental health, Natalie is the perfect advocate to deliver such a positive message to young people all over the UK. 
"Dance Floor" is her brand new song which highlights the importance of being proud to be who you are no matter what.
Natalie also encouraged pupils to seek help if they are struggling, which pupils at MVC can do through their tutor, pastoral support officer, head of year or any other member of staff they feel comfortable speaking to.
Her performance was fantastic and pupils were able to ask questions and have an informal chat with her too.  
Pre-Covid Natalie supported Kaiser Chiefs and Craig David on their UK arena tours and this summer she will perform at more than 20 festivals. She has also performed with Little Mix and Rag and Bone Man
