Rising Pop/Hip Hop teen stars TBTG (This Boy That Girl) address ‘Bullying’ issues in their new music video – “Music Is My Language.” This is for the Champions Against Bullying School Tour with special guest Matt Ryan King.
Bullying is the most common form of violence in schools (verbally and physically). One incident of bullying occurs every seven minutes; It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to the fear of attack or intimidation by other students; 2 out of 3 teens are verbally or physically harassed every year; 58% of teens have had hurtful things said to them online and over 40% say it’s happened more than once, according to www.dosomething.org.
“We believe that spreading our word through our music will help diminish and help prevent this epidemic called bullying “, points out Matt Ryan King
“We want to inspire kindness, confidence and respect in individuals through music” says Alec King, the oldest at 19_ and the charismatic young MC of TBTG. “Music is an international language that everyone can understand,” chimes in the effervescent Becca King, who turned 18, along with her twin brother Matt Ryan King on September 30th and is one of Alex’s younger sisters and brothers, Shelby and David who also turned 10 on the same date, September 30th.
