Zak, 14, from Crook, in County Durham, battled bullying at school and is now home-schooled where his musical talent has been nurtured.

The up-and-coming singer's music is produced by Mercia Records, distributed by Sony and his Christmas single streamed over 100,000 times.

Richard Hull, Zak's father, said: "Zak lives, sleeps and breathes music. Performing on stage is where Zak is definitely most comfortable."

Since the age of two Zak's passion for the stage has been evident and as well as singing he also plays the drums.

He has been working with song-writers and music producers, Mike Krompass and Dan Taylor at their Sheffield studio and his single My Girl is due out on 24 March.

Zak's debut album will follow later this year and is set to be distributed by Sony music.

Zak feels his personal experiences of being bullied enable him to offer guidance to others around bullying, online cyber safety and overall mental health.

Alongside his dad, he is currently touring schools and as well as performing his music he brings with him an important anti-bullying theme.
