Teen Nation Tour singers Kristina Lachaga, Collin Kozola, Zach Mataribelts, Tru Fam, JRyan and Raleigh native Kaylin Roberson performed a concert with an anti-bullying message Wednesday at Holly Grove Middle School in Holly Springs.

The group’s fall 2014 tour kicked off on Monday in Raleigh. The high-energy 90-minute school assemblies for middle and high school students feature young recording artists from around the country who perform Top 40, country, pop, and rock hits. Artists volunteer their time to be on the tour. They share personal bullying experiences, discuss the types of bullying and prevention strategies.

Teen Nation Tour has concerts scheduled throughout North Carolina and has stops planned in Nashville, Knoxville and Atlanta and will finish its run in Texas.
