Musician Lee Coulter Lends Voice to Natural High
The performer stars in the nonprofit’s latest video on NaturalHigh.tv
“I was never searching for any outside sources to give me a high,” Coulter shares, reflecting on his own youth in Australia. “I feel like [music] is a uniting force, and I like being part of it.”
The musician’s debut album saw three singles reach rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House and was subsequently named their Discovery of 2011. Coulter first teamed up with Natural High in October, when he performed at their 12th Annual Sunset Splash Gala, helping raise nearly half a million dollars for substance abuse prevention. The experience allowed him to experience the power of Natural High’s mission first hand, and inspired him to become more involved
“[I believe] You should live your life in a way that it’s enhanced to its extreme without any sort of help from substances,”
Coulter believes music provides a real connectedness that doesn’t need to be artificially enhanced by substances. He finds his natural high in sharing his songs.
“Coulter’s extraordinary optimism is exactly the kind of thing we need to help further Natural High’s mission, “ says founder Jon Sundt.
Lee Coulter and Natural High both aim to spark change across the nation by spreading Natural High’s message. Coulter’s video and more can be found at www.Naturalhigh.tv.
About Natural High
Natural High is a drug abuse prevention organization that helps youth discover, amplify and pursue their natural high so that they have a reason to say no to an artificial high. They communicate this message primarily through teachers in the Education Network and through the Natural High DVD Curriculum Series made available free-of-charge to all schools in the US. As a result of the video series, 83% of educators report a change in their students’ perception about drugs and alcohol and 85% of students participating in the program have reported that having a natural high will help fight the temptation of drugs and alcohol. Currently, the program is used by 16,000 educators to reach more than 6 million students annually with a message of encouragement to live naturally high.
