Morgan Frazier has teamed with Stand for the Silent (SFTS) to bring awareness to the issue of bullying in today’s society. SFTS was started after Kirk and Laura Smalley’s son Ty committed suicide in May 2010 following a school suspension for defending himself against a bully. Ty was taunted for years and it was the only time he had ever fought back. He was only 11 years old.

Kirk and Laura give SFTS presentations at middle and high schools across the world. Morgan will join them at select school tour dates, where she will perform her new single, “Hey Bully.” She co-wrote the song with Sherrie Austin and Tiffany Goss when talk turned to the infamous video of Karen Klein, the school bus driver who was bullied in the back of a bus.

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