The campaign aims to raise money and awareness to kids in the U.S. who face hunger every day of their lives.
Tori Kelly wrote a new song called “Fill A Heart” to support the campaign. It will be available to download from iTunes next month!
Amber Riley and Cody Simpson also recorded versions of the song, which will be available March 1.
“Everyone wants to get involved,” Braun told Billboard. “We are a country with the means to provide for all our citizens — 17 million [hungry] kids is an unacceptable number. We have a lot more work to do, but I love the idea that as many as 3 million meals are going to come out of this.”
A DJ called Baauer recorded a little song last May called the “Harlem Shake.”
It went relatively unnoticed until this month, when a group of friends made a dance video to the song that immediately went viral and turned into one of the biggest memes ever and spawning thousands of parodies! Is this the next Gangnam Style?
Even celebrities are getting in on the action! That’s where you come in. Check out the Harlem Shake videos below and vote below for your very favorite celeb Shake!
“Cyberbullying is something that I experience online everyday,” Cody admitted at a youth rally against bullying. He says that being in the spotlight puts him in a place where it’s easy for fans to send their love, or detractors to send their hate.
“Everyone experiences that, but I just try my best,” Cody says. “Obviously, you can see how severe it can go and it’s important to do our best to prevent situations like that because it’s terrible.”
Like other stars, Cody is constantly sent mean messages via Twitter. “Right now I have kind of grown almost numb to it,” he says. At the start of his music career, he would go out of his way to look up the hate messages and see what people were saying about him, but today he makes sure never to look at them, he says.
“People say these things,” Cody says. “They don’t even know you. It does hurt a little bit. They didn’t even have a chance to know you as a person and all they see is what is online. When someone sees a person doing that it kind of snowballs and people start to think it’s okay.”
Now, Cody is part the Defeat the Label campaign, which tries to create an environment free of bullying, labels, and stereotypes.
I absolutely love what Cody is doing to stamp out bullying! What do you do to stop bullies in their tracks?
The 86th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is just around the corner! This time around, the event will feature awesome performances by Cody Simpson, Carly Rae Jepsen, and The Wanted that aren’t to be missed!
