Kray-Z Legz becomes Global Youth Ambassador
Rap musician Kray-Z Legz is joining international disability charity, Leonard Cheshire, as a Global Youth Ambassador for music.
Kray-Z Legz helped bring to life research which revealed nearly three quarters (73%) of disabled people believed more needs to be done for non-disabled people to understand that their words cause offence.
Born with spina bifida, Mark is a permanent wheelchair user, and has undergone more than operations throughout his life.
Originally from Somerset, his track ‘Gassed’ featuring Benny Banks has had more than 270,000 streams on Spotify.
Mark is a passionate campaigner for increased venue accessibility and for more disabled artists to be included in line ups at festivals and events.
He has previously spoken about Boomtown in Winchester as leading the way in its support of disabled musicians and audiences.
“It’s a true honour to be Global Youth Ambassador and I can’t wait to start working with Leonard Cheshire and the team to make some serious noise around disability,” said Mark.
“With my music knowledge and the team’s support I think this will be the start of a very important partnership.
“Here is to a bright future.”
Ruth Owen OBE, CEO of Leonard Cheshire, said:
“We are all thrilled that Mark has joined us in our work. The support he gave us in the recent campaign was amazing. I’m really excited about what the charity and Mark will be able to do together to promote the rights of disabled people, change perceptions and create more opportunities for our community.”
