FOR LIZZIE SIDER, IT WAS TRULY "LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT."
She was five years old when she saw her first musical, “Annie Get Your Gun,” and it was then that she realized there was “no business like show business.” Born and raised in South Florida, Lizzie is an American singer/songwriter, recording artist, actress, dancer, and Founder of anti-bullying non-profit organization, Nobody Has The Power To Ruin Your Day.
Early in her career, Lizzie’s singles, “Butterfly” and “I Love You That Much,” landed in the Top 40 on the Nashville country charts. Continuing to write with renowned lyricists such as Lisa Drew (Martina McBride, Emerson Drive), Liz Rose (Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw), and Heather Morgan (Brett Eldredge, Keith Urban), she recorded and released multiple projects, including her Symphony EP and single titled “Summer Love Song,” which was featured as the opening track of Hallmark’s original movie, “A Time To Dance” in 2016. Lizzie has opened for Gloriana, Aaron Tippin and Jamie O’Neal, and shared the stage with Peter Yarrow of “Peter, Paul and Mary.” She was also a featured guest and performer on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family, Entertainment Tonight, and The Queen Latifah Show. And unsurprisingly, Lizzie’s musical theatre roots still remain a big part of her. Her most recent credits include Martha in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Cat Ballou in The Ballad of Cat Ballou.
Advocating for positive causes is a cornerstone in Lizzie’s life, both personally and professionally. She is a spokesperson for GWEN and PACER, and recipient of the Peter Yarrow HateBraker Hero Award for her work in anti-bullying. This is her most personal endeavor, as Lizzie was bullied in elementary school. Having come out of that experience a stronger person, it gives her great joy to be able to spread light and hope to students all across the globe. Lizzie has personally spoken and performed at over 400 elementary and middle schools nationwide with her Nobody Has The Power To Ruin Your Day Tour. Her 30-minute assembly includes her personal story and combines positivity, music, a relatable message. Additionally, her Bully Prevention Video Package is ever-growing in popularity and, as of January 2018, is reaching 6,000 schools worldwide, representing 4 million students. She is often a featured speaker at national education conferences, and just authored a children’s book, scheduled for release in 2018.
