A singer who beat the bullies to become a top musician will be a guest performer at a Tour de France celebration.

Whetstone born Raphaella Mazerahi will entertain cyclists with her music at Tour de France 'fan parks' in Trafalgar Square and Green Park.

The fan parks are the official entertainment zones for those participating in the race, which is this year starting with three stages in England.

The songwriter and artist has been invited to launch her anti-bullying Kids Count UK #iSTANDfor campaign song, Beautiful Like Me.

Having been badly bullied in school, she is now using her traumatic experience to help others.

Raphaella will perform in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, July 5 at 5.15pm and Monday, July 7 at Green Park from 5.30pm. Entrance is free.
