Most people recall the heartwarming tale about outcast youth, Michael Oher, and his fabulous Cinderella-story:
But what some people don't know, is that Blind Side star, Quinton Aaron is still fighting to spread the word about outcast kids and teens, particularly in the realm of bullying, with his Quinton Aaron Foundation. After becoming a victim to bullying himself, Quinton and his organization have become symbols of love and acceptance among today's bullied youth.
On October 7th, Quinton Aaron will team up with a handful of recording artists to bring a new kind of anti-bullying message; a song called REMEMBER, written by Brenda O'Brien (Two Kings ft. Pam Tillis) and Steve Argy. Produced by Tony Bongiovi protege, Rob Roy at the new Power Station Studios in South Florida. Some of you may remember the original, legendary Power Station of New York.
Quinton Aaron will by the keynote speaker at an evening even in Boca Raton on October 7th, and evening to UNITE AGAINST BULLYING. There will be live performances from artists featured on NBC's The Voice, such as Kris Thomas and Karina Iglesias, and even some exciting, new up-and-comers such as Spectra Music Group's new rocker, Shayne Leighton, who just released her debut single, INVINCIBLE, a reboot of the Pat Benatar classic. Jaylen Arnold of Jaylen's Challenge (as featured on The Ellen Show) will also be speaking, along with many other advocates for tolerance and acceptance, like Rebecca Zerbo of Positive Pockets, an organization that seeks to promote positive self-esteem and improve self-confidence in kids and adults who suffer from the negative effects of bullying and other social/emotional issues.
At the end of the night, Brenda O'Brien will unveil the official song and music video for REMEMBER, which is reminiscent of WE ARE THE WORLD. It is a collaborative music project and features Grammy-nominated veterans, such as Wendy Moten, artists from The Voice, such as Sarah Simmons, Kris Thomas, and Karina Iglesias, The Stax Academy of Memphis, and more exciting, new up-and-comers, such as Shayne Leighton, Linzy Rose, Nick Murphy, and son of the late Isaac Hayes, Kojo Hayes.
Come October 7th, REMEMBER will be made available wherever music is sold digitally, and Quinton Aaron and his talented team may just bring this exciting anti-bullying event to a city near you!
