"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,
