Morgan Frazier Joins Stand For the Silent With New Single, ‘Hey Bully’
Morgan Frazier's latest single could literally save lives. The singer has partnered with anti-bullying organization Stand For The Silent (SFTS) to release her new song, 'Hey Bully,' after feeling compelled to take action for a cause that affects thousands of people every day.
The songstress wrote the song with Sherrie Austin and Tiffany Goss, after discussing bus monitor Karen Klein, whose bullying incident on a school bus was viewed all over the world. Frazier, who admits to being bullied in school so severely herself that she had to withdraw completely, penned the song in a few hours.
Kirk and Laura Smalley started Stand for the Silent after their 11-year-old son, Ty, committed suicide in 2010 because he was being bullied in his school. Frazier will join the Smalleys on select dates in schools all across the country to share the anti-bullying message.
“I’ve already been touched by the power of this song from messages I’ve received from kids who have experienced bullying firsthand," Frazier says. "I look forward to working with Stand for the Silent to bring an end to this issue."
According to SFTS, 160,000 children stay home from school every day because of bullying issues, with a staggering 25% of high school students in America making a plan to end their life before graduation.
'Hey Bully' will officially be released on Aug. 27. Pre-order the song here.
