According to the 2013 Oklahoma Youth Risk Behavior Survey, there were 3,784 reported incidents of bullying involving Kindergarten through 5th grade students, 5,309 reported incidents of bullying involving 6th through 8th grade students, and 1,801 reported incidents of bullying involving 9th through 12th grade students. Statewide incident counts (http://www.ok.gov/sde/sites/ok.gov.sde/files/documents/fi...) for school year 2012-2013 show there were 31 total suicide attempts and 11 suicide completions.

Bullying (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jnkJfUfr6Y) affects nearly one in three schoolchildren in America grades six through 10. It’s a major factor in teen suicide and school shootings. In fact, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. Nearly 70 percent of students think schools respond poorly to bullying.

The Houston-based Allstar Nation Tour has exploded in popularity having performed about 100 assemblies for more than 75,000 students and faculty at more than 50 schools in Michigan, Texas, Wisconsin, Florida, and Oklahoma since its debut in August 2014. It is also the only anti-bullying concert tour featuring talent from American Idol, The Voice, and X-Factor.
