About Stand for the Silent:
Stand for the Silent exists as a platform to allow Kirk and Laura Smalley to share their story and offer education and tools that will prevent their tragedy from happening to another child and family. Kirk and Laura's mission is to continue to change kids' lives and bring awareness to bullying and the real devastation it causes. Since May 2010, Kirk and Laura Smalley have traveled to hundreds of schools and spoken with more than 700,000 kids.  In March 2011, Kirk and Laura met privately with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama in The White House prior to attending the first ever White House conference on bullying. Their story is featured in Director Lee Hirsch's feature film, Bully. Kirk and Laura have been invited to a number of conferences on bullying and met with Lady Gaga this spring at the launch of the Born This Way Foundation.

About Morgan Frazier:
Recognized in Country Weekly's "Ones To Watch in 2013," Morgan Frazier's remarkable journey began in a small Texas town where she made her way to Nashville by literally going door-to-door.  At just nine years old, Morgan recorded her first CD in her hometown of Breckenridge, Texas.   Although they had no formal plans to market or sell the CD's, Morgan's family believed in their little girl's talent and ordered one thousand copies. For the next two years, Morgan and her family traveled all over the South and Southwest selling over thirty thousand copies of her album. At the age of sixteen, Morgan followed her dream to Nashville where she perfected her songwriting craft and honed her chops at the legendary Tootsie's Orchid Lounge. Not long after, she signed a publishing and recording contract with Curb Records' imprint Sidewalk Records. Having experienced bullying first hand, Morgan co-wrote her latest single, "Hey Bully" to bring awareness to the growing epidemic.
