Morgan Frazier Combat Worldwide

Morgan Frazier Unites with Stand for the Silent
To Combat Worldwide Bullying

Brand New Impactful Song, “Hey Bully” Launches

Nashville,
Tenn. (August 2nd, 2013) – Sidewalk/Curb Recording artist, Morgan
Frazier has partnered with Stand for the Silent (SFTS) to bring global
awareness to the disturbing issue of bullying in today’s society. SFTS
was started after Kirk and Laura Smalley’s son Ty committed suicide in
May of 2010 following a school suspension for defending himself against a
bully.  Ty was taunted for years at his Oklahoma middle school, and
this was the first time he fought back.  He was only 11 years old.

In their pledge to never stop the fight against school bullying, Kirk and Laura conduct Stand for the Silent presentations
at middle and high schools all across the world. Morgan Frazier will be
joining select dates on the school tour where she will perform her
brand new single, “Hey Bully”.

Morgan co-wrote the song with Sherrie Austin and Tiffany Goss when a
writing session turned to talk of a video Goss had seen recently about
Karen Klein, the school bus driver who was bullied in the back of a bus
that eventually generated worldwide attention.  Dialogue on the
heartbreaking topic began and stories were shared, including Morgan’s
own experience that led her parents to remove her from school entirely.
After a few short hours, “Hey Bully” was completed.

“I’ve already been touched by the power of this song from messages
I’ve received from kids who have experienced bullying firsthand.  I look
forward to working with Stand For The Silent to bring an end to this
issue,” says Morgan.

“I’ve never experienced so many tears and so much divine inspiration
during one writing appointment. Four hours and about a million goose
bumps later we had our song”, says Sherrie Austin.  The songwriter’s
intentions showcase as much compassion for the “bully” as it does the
“bullied” as the lyric poignantly reflects:

DID SOMEBODY HURT YOU, MAKE YOU FEEL SMALL
YOU TAKE IT OUT ON ME ‘CAUSE IT MAKES YOU FEEL TALL
I BET YOU’RE SCARED AND ALONE
IF YOU LOOKED IN MY EYES YOU’D SEE
HEY BULLY, YOU’RE A LOT LIKE ME

WHY, WHY YOU WANNA MAKE ME CRY
YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO I AM
IF YOU GAVE ME HALF A CHANCE
WE JUST MIGHT HAVE BEEN FRIENDS, HEY BULLY

According to Stand For The Silent, the statistics on bullying are alarming:
•Every 7 seconds a child is bullied in this world
•160,000 kids stay home from school every day due to fear of bullying
•25% of high school students in America will actually have a plan to take their own life before they graduate

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 firsthand, Morgan co-wrote
her latest single, “Hey Bully” to bring awareness to the growing
epidemic.
