Local musician Smashby has released his “True Colours” cover originally by Zedd & Keisha, in support of Anti-Bullying Week.
For the music video Smashby reached out to fans to film their own “I’m Not Afraid” message in their own creative way. Fans who sent in their videos wanted to stand with Smashby to show they have overcome their bullies and support the message that bullying should not be ignored.
Smashby says: “I’ve always been passionate about anti bullying because it’s something that can really damage people. I know it damaged my confidence growing up and it’s taken me a long time to feel comfortable in my own skin.”
Smashby’s music career has had huge success over 2016 with the release of his debut single, “Pharaoh”, hitting the iTunes chart and getting the chance to tour around, meeting fans and performing around the country.
Now with the release of his Anti-Bullying campaign he is hoping to shout out and spread his message throughout schools in the area.
As Anti-Bullying Week commences November 14th, Smashby will be touring schools in the Yorkshire and Manchester area, along with radio stations promoting his campaign and making more people aware of the week. Find out more about Anti-Bullying Week by visiting their site here.
Finishing the week on Saturday 19th November, Smashby will then be performing in Burnley for Transgender Remembrance. You can book tickets to the event here.
