TWO hundred young music lovers will hit the stage at Metropolis Fremantle on Thursday to perform songs of hope to raise awareness for youth suicide prevention.

The children, aged between six and 17, come from Life Without Barriers, the Association for the Blind WA, Therapy Focus, Autism West and more than 20 education support centres, high schools and primary schools will use music to promote the discussion of mental health issue.

Music Rocks Australia founder Dean Blanchard, who organised the event, said youth delivering the messages made them more powerful.

‘Our young musicians highlight that the difficulties in their lives such as autism, cerebral palsy, visual impairment, depression and disadvantage are no obstacle for achieving amazing musical, social and personal results ” results that are visibly life-changing,’ he said.

Music Rocks Metropolis Fremantle is on September 26 from 6pm.

Tickets start in price from $15.30 and can be purchased from www.tickets.oztix.com.|au
