Morgan Frazier and Stand for the Silent
Team Up For Anti-Bullying Tour

 

Stops Planned for Schools Across the Country Beginning in October

Nashville,
Tenn. (Sept. 18, 2013) – Country recording artist Morgan Frazier and
anti-bullying organization Stand for the Silent are taking their message
on the road with a tour that will begin at schools in Knoxville, Tenn.,
New Bern, N.C., Charleston, S.C. and Charlotte, N.C., with more stops
to be added. Their mission is to change kids’ lives and bring awareness
to bullying and the real devastation it causes. Since May 2010, Stand
for the Silent has traveled to hundreds of schools and spoken with more
than 700,000 kids. Sidewalk/Curb recording artist, Morgan Frazier has
joined the cause and partnered with the organization to help bring
global awareness to the issue. Morgan will join them at select school
tour dates, where she will perform her new single, “Hey Bully,” a song
inspired by Frazier’s personal experiences.

“I am so honored to be working with Kirk and Laura Smalley and Stand
For The Silent to tackle this issue.  I have witnessed first-hand the
power of their presentation through feedback from students in every city
they reach.  We must all play a part in educating people of all ages
about the devastating effects of bullying”.

 At the beginning of each Stand for the Silent school presentation,
student leaders read the biographies of bullying victims that have lost
their lives to suicide as submitted by their families. According to the
organization, every seven seconds a child is bullied in this world,
160,000 kids stay home from school every day due to fear of bullying and
25% of high school students in America will actually have a plan to
take their own life before they graduate. “Hey Bully” was inspired by
Morgan’s own experience with bullying, which eventually led her parents
to remove her from school entirely.

About Morgan Frazier:
Recognized in Country Weekly’s “Ones To Watch in 2013,”
Morgan Frazier’s remarkable journey began in a small Texas town where
she made her way to Nashville by literally going door-to-door.  At just
nine years old, Morgan recorded her first CD in her hometown of
Breckenridge, Texas.   Although they had no formal plans to market or
sell the CD’s, Morgan’s family believed in their little girl’s talent
and ordered one thousand copies. For the next two years, Morgan and her
family traveled all over the South and Southwest selling over thirty
thousand copies of her album. At the age of sixteen, Morgan followed her
dream to Nashville where she perfected her songwriting craft and honed
her chops at the legendary Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge. Not long after, she
signed a publishing and recording contract with Curb Records’ imprint
Sidewalk Records. Having experienced bullying first hand, Morgan
co-wrote her latest single, “Hey Bully” to bring awareness to the
growing epidemic.
