POP star Rhianna Emms hit the high notes at Ormiston Forge Academy as part of a tour to deliver online safety and anti-discrimination messages to youngsters.

The 21-year-old singer-songwriter has been featured on Radio 1 and supported Fifth Harmony on tour.

During her visit to the Cradley Heath school she performed and talked to students in years seven, eight and nine.

As well as delivering important messages about online safety and some personal reflections on bullying and discrimination, she performed a set of covers that had the 1,000 strong audience of students up on their feet.

She said: "The kids were absolutely amazing, they all gave it their all when singing along to my songs.

"They had no problem answering my questions in relation to cyber bullying and they were very respectful and listened to every word I had to say.

"All in all, it's a fabulous school, full of fabulous children and members of staff, I had an amazing time."

Forge principal Andrew Burns said: "We are really grateful that Rhianna took time out from her busy schedule to come and talk and perform for our students.

"The messages she delivered are incredibly important, they are messages we constantly reinforce but having Rhianna engage with the young people so well makes the delivery much more powerful."

Forge will welcome rising R&B duo Misunderstood to the academy later this month to perform and talk to students about British values.

Misunderstood graduated from the BRIT School of Performing Arts and have supported MOBO Award Winner Chipmunk and Grammy winners Boyz II Men on tour.
