"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" is the most important song I've
ever released, because the subject is a matter of life or death.
The fact is, bullied teens often commit suicide.
That's why iconic pop singer Taylor Dayne and
legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold have both joined me
in this special project.
All net proceeds from video views, song streams and downloads of
"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" will go to anti-bullying charities.
Peace and Love,

Finally -- great news from the global climate talks in Paris! A coalition of more than 100 rich and poor countries from across the planet, which was secretly formed six months ago, announced itself and said it was going to drive through an ambitious legal climate agreement!

This is how we win Paris! Sign the urgent call and tell everyone -- for every 10,000 people that sign, an SMS will be … [Continue reading...]
