According to a study done by the U.S. Department of Education, in 2007 nearly 32% of students 12 to 18 reported they were bullied at school.
One rising country artist, who was a victim of bullying herself, shared a song with a message to students on Friday.
Morgan Frazier says she was bullied so badly in school, her mom took her out of public school to be home schooled. Friday, she shared a song she wrote about bullying to students at Lead–Deadwood High School called 'Hey Bully.' "You're not alone is what I wanted to really bring to these people, and really let them know that it happened to me and it's something that I powered through and they can too," said Frazier.
Frazier is performing at the Deadwood Jam, but wanted to visit high schools and middle schools as well to sing her song to raise awareness. "She really puts a point across on how anyone can be subjected to this and she does really well in putting her feelings into her music," said Hannah Rogers, a sophomore.
Frazier put out her first CD at age 9 and signed a recording contract at 16.
