Marsha Ambrosius' music video "Far Away"
Marsha Ambrosius devotes the music video for her new single "Far Away" to raise awareness against bullying. Inspired by her real-life experience, the clip revolves around a gay black man who is bullied and treated as an outsider by people in his neighborhood due to his sexual orientation. At the end of her video, Marsha sends out the message below to others, along with a number you can call if you need to talk with someone.
Every year over 1 million people commit SUICIDE. Some were BULLIED because of their SEXUALITY. I lost a friend to SUICIDE, and I’m asking all of you to support alternative lifestyles. Don’t put up with or join in with BULLYING. It’s time we become more aware in this WORLD. Take responsibility to make a difference. So if my music can save one life, I’ve done my job.
I love you all so much!
