Anti-Bullying Song Goes Viral



I’m not a fan of television talent shows because I find them exploitative and I feel manipulated as a viewer. I also object to the audience reaction shots and backstage interruptions. But having said that, much credit must be given to the young singers above for their stellar performance and for taking the anti-bullying message to millions of people worldwide:


Two teenage boys wowed the Britain’s Got Talent judges with their rendition of Faith Evans and Twista’s “Hope,” changing the rap verses to reflect their feelings about bullying.

The duo — Bars and Melody — delivered an emotional performance that brought audience members to their feet and tears to some of their eyes. The video from last week’s show has since gone viral, attracting nearly 8 million views.

“I like the fact that they wrote their own song based on life experiences,” judge Simon Cowell told ITV on the network’s website after the audition. “People are going to root for them and they’ve got this great friendship that is so obvious when you watch them together.

The judges have moved Bars and Melody into Britain’s Got Talent’s semi-finals.

But the good news doesn’t stop there. It appears Bars and Melody has influenced bullies to apologize to their victims or stop their bullying altogether:
