Lil Chris – RIP – Lowestoft Loved You
Sadly Chris Hardman aka Lil Chris passed away on 23/03/2015. He first found fame at 15 when he appeared in series two of Channel 4’s Rock School which based itself at Kirkley High School in Lowestoft. Chris went on to sign a record deal with major label RCA and released his debut single Checkin’ It Out in September 2006. It reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart.
As well as Rock School, the 24-year-old also made TV appearances on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Dani’s House and The Weakest Link.
Love Lowestoft always championed Chris’s work and achievements. He was an inspiration to thousands of young people in town and its just such a shame that he felt that life was not worth living – when he clearly had so much to give. Out thoughts go our to Chris’s family who still live in Lowestoft and of course the thousands of fans around the world who loved ‘lil Chris’.
