Keighley pop singer talks about drug abuse at South Craven School
7:00am Monday 10th February 2014 in Keighley
Keighley pop singer Amy Harper brought her anti-drugs tour to home territory.
She performed her new single at South Craven School and gave a presentation about drug abuse to students.
Amy, 21, who goes under the professional name of Harper, also performed hits by the likes of Little Mix and Rihanna.
She answered questions about drugs from students of various ages at the Cross Hills school.
Amy’s South Craven School appearance was part of her tour of around 30 Yorkshire schools with the charity Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE).
Former Keighley Cougars cheerleader Amy has been a professional singer since she was 17.
She was in a showgroup at Drayton Manor theme park while at performing arts college, then performed in Girls Aloud and Rihanna tribute acts.
Amy spent about four years with Catherine Cooper and Kay Molyneaux as Bon Bonz, releasing two albums before splitting up last September.
As Harper, she has recorded a solo debut single entitled The Boss, which she described as a commercial pop song.
Amy said: “I go into schools teaching students about drug abuse. I tell them not to let people influence them.
“I say, ‘you are the boss of your own life, don’t let anyone order you around’.”
