Several Maple Ridge acts will showcase their talents at a concert next week to stamp out bullying.

Ria Jade Diy, 16, is a singer, songwriter and musician who hosts her own TV show titled eveRIAthing on Shaw. A victim of bullying during her earlier years, Diy says with self-respect, motivation, determination, and the support of family and friends, anyone can put an end to bullying.

Diy and Maple Ridge band Robot Mafia will perform at Unity Rocks Showcase Extravaganza for “I am Someone” April 25, along with Bacon Coma, Mike Stoltz, Dr. Brainstorm, Mortimer’s Band, Nostrathomas, Charlie Spittel.

I Am Someone is spearheading a project to provide a text-messaging platform that links bullied kids with resources and counsellors.

• The Unity Rocks concert takes place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Northside Church, 2606 Kingsway Avenue in Port Coquitlam on Friday, April 25. Tickets are $10. Info: northsidekingsway.com/unityrocks.
