Award-winning speaker and MC Curtis Adams, known as “Unkle Adams,” will perform his anti-bullying music on Long Island this week.

“Unkle Adams” is not your typical rapper -- his music is uplifting and inspirational, targeting children, tweens and teens to help stop bullying and self-harm as well as helping to prevent suicides around the world. Adams travels to schools to speak with students through music and presentations about healthy eating, fitness, bullying, domestic abuse, climate change and more.

“I got sick of hearing about all of the tragic bullying that was happening,” Adams said. “I decided that I was going to take action to help with the situation. I designed my anti-bullying song ‘I Am Stronger’ to mend the broken spirits of those being bullied and to help prevent bullying-related suicides.”

The Canadian-born performer has released many hits, including “I Am Stronger,” which has amassed more than 10 million views on YouTube and Facebook. He has released two albums, “Humble Beginnings” and “Pulse,” as well as six singles.
