Hunter Hayes - "Invisible" [Official Music Video]
So, if you haven't heard this new song by the young, but amazing Hunter Hayes, then you need to take a few moments to watch the video.
Not only is the song amazing, and even my teenage daughter says so, but the message is worth the listen.
Right now the song is available on itunes and proceeds of the downloads are going to fight childhood hunger, which is an amazing thing for someone like Hunter Hayes, who let me remind you is only 22, to be doing. The song is also being heard on commericals for the red pushpin campaign to fight childhood hungar on television. All of this is wonderful and I applaud him for being able to stand up and make a difference in this world at this young age and I hope that more people can follow his example.
If you forget all that for a moment and just listen to the song and the words, this is the anthem for teenagers today. So many kids are being bullied in schools and feeling they aren't worth anything and that they can't make it through life. Teen sucides are up and bulling is rampant. What is happening to our children? This song is telling those kids that it will all be over, that one day it will pass and life does move on from this dark place they are in now. The message the song sends is even more important.
My kids go to a small school, a even there bullying has become an issue, and this song is something that my daughter loves to sing and to talk about with her friends to remind them that there is light at the end of high school. Things will be different.
Thank you Hunter Hayes, for being wise beyond your years and sharing such an incredible song!
