Galvanized Souls, an award-winning alternate rock band based in Southern California, uses their melodic harmonies to reach out to young people with a powerful message of hope. Known as a “band that takes a stand”, Galvanized Souls advocates for issues that affect many teenagers today. Their newest music video for their original song, “Carry On,” addresses bullying and the healing power of positivity and community. “Carry On” was written as an anthem meant to inspire young people to be brave and to take a stand against bullying. The music video for “Carry On” features the story of Colin, a young boy who struggled with bullying in school and felt he had no friends. In February, Colin’s mother created a Facebook page to help celebrate Colin’s 11th birthday. After receiving more than two million Facebook friends, support from around the world, and a surprise birthday party from Good Morning America, Colin and his family felt the need to give back by telling their story through music. Colin’s collaboration with Galvanized Souls showcases the strength of encouraging words and showing solidarity in the face of bullying.
