What a great update this song is of the Cyndi Lauper classic True Colors.
What a great song to feature for this week’s Tunes with Tuesday feature.
I get goosebumps every time I hear this version. It is a dedication from many Canadian singers to support the anti-bullying movement and is headed by MuchMusic. The artists here include:
- Jacob Hoggard
- Fefe Dobson
- Walk Off the Earth
- Kardinal Offishall (it is worth watching the video simply for his rap section)
There is a link at the end of the video to the Kids Help Phone. It is Canada’s only free, anonymous, and confidential phone and online help network for children and teens.
Even if you have never been bullied (and sadly, you are in the minority) you can appreciate the beautiful message of the song. Your true colors are what make you special. Being unique is wonderful, and you realize this detail more and more as you age. I know I do!
I value people who are themselves rather than people who take on the shape of the people around them or the shape that those people want them to be.
This is christyb, wishing you a day full of kindness and devoid of bullying xx
