ABS CBN: You Tube Stars take on bullies

posted by Randall

Above Seclusion Two Filipino American stars on You Tube know first hand what it’s like to be bullied.

Both will be among those performing at a concert in Los Angeles tonight to benefit Jade Against Bullying, an anti-bullying campaign founded by Jade Archer who almost committed suicide because of bullies

Filipino American Brenna Bates and his band Above Seclusion are inspired by many of their life experiences.

‘All of us were bullied. It was called ‘Above Seclusion’ because we were basically above secluding people into groups because that’s how people got bullied,” Bates told ABS CBN.

YouTube anime pianist Ishmael Ramos was also bullied.

“The anime culture in general is very unique. It’s very extreme. So when I was a kid, I watched anime. I was bullied in high school, middle school, and as a musician we’re very emotional,” recalled Ramos.
You can find out more about the benefit and some of the performers in the clip below from ABS CBN.
