Alex James Ellison Performs at The Heights 

On the 16th May 2017, The Heights was visited by  singer Alex James Ellison who is currently on a Drug Education and Life Skills themed schools tour.  Alex  performed for the pupils delivering  a drugs and peer pressure awareness  message supporting the programs developed by charity D.A.R.E.

Alex  is a singer/songwriter from Brighton. Alex attended the BRIT School (where Amy Winehouse trained) and has been tipped by BBC’s Radio 1 as the next big British male singer being compared to Olly Murs. Alex has been singing and playing guitar for the last 10 years, and currently has two releases out on iTunes; Duvet Days, a 5 track EP and Chocolate Bar, his latest single. After supporting McBusted on tour he will soon be heading off to LA to work with some huge songwriters.

Alex’s performance was received very positively by all and students and staff even got up and joined in the singing!!!
