Featured Public Service Announcement
Uniting Thru Music
As a music industry we have come together in support of aid to Africa, Tsunami relief, the aftermath of 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and Haiti relief, just to name a few causes. I believe it's time for us to preserve our future and help the youth of our nation. Bullying has gotten out of hand and needs to be stopped.
I would like to have musicians/bands/artists record short public service announcements (PSA's) which we (music websites) can then host. I would like to also offer these to the radio station websites across our nation as well as post them on youtube for all to see.
The music industry has shown time and time again that it is a force to be reckoned with. When the artists themselves that the kids look up to give them hope, we might be able to prevail and put an end to this.

Why We Did This
From youtube comments:
Re: PSA from Emilie Autumn
"Fan forum comment aside, I loved this video. It's refreshing to see this EA come out. As much as I enjoyed her persona at one point, it was this EA that gave me strength. It was this EA that I related to. I also agree with most of what she said. I eventually found my inner strength by myself, but seeing this video would have helped so much when I was a kid. I'm glad that EA took out some time to speak about this as I'm sure it will be helpful to those that still struggle with being bullied."
RE: PSA Jayy Von Monroe of Blood on the Dance Floor
"I sadly Know exactly what this is like. I wear 7 inch platform boots, so i get called a prostitute. I wear lots of band bracelets and kandi, so i get called scene. I love BOTDF and BVB, i wear tons of eyeliner, & skinnys so i get made fun of for that. And basically to sum it up, i look different. I have like no friends. It sucks ass. Then i see Jayy and he gives me hope. He used to be bullied, and look at him now <3
SGTC for life <3 // "
