High school freshman raises her voice to fight bullying

Lexxi Saal has a powerful voice, and the 14-year-old has been using it to spread a message of anti-bullying among kids as part of the Bully Tour.The career of the young singer-songwriter from Deer Park began after she performed at school in the fifth grade. Since then, she has been taking her message to schools across the Island, with the latest stop being at the Alleghany Avenue Elementary School in Lindenhurst. "I really want to talk to children about bullying and how it hurts our society, and I want them to understand and help," Lexxi says. Her message went over well with the students at Alleghany Avenue Elementary School. "It made me think that bullying is really hurtful for people," says fifth-grade student Jessica Portillo.Lexxi will perform Friday morning at Farmingdale College.Lexxi Saal's Official Website
