(Hollywood, CA) â€“ Claudia Lee is a new teen artist who has released her first single and corresponding music video entitled â€œIt Gets Betterâ€ as a direct response in support of Dan Savageâ€™s â€œIt Gets Betterâ€ campaign.
The campaign was started by advice columnist and podcaster, Dan Savage, to raise awareness about the recent media coverage in the increasing number of LGBT youth suicides. The campaign features videos filmed by celebrities and politicians, among them President Barrack Obama and fashion designer, Tim Gunn, as well as first-hand accounts of bullying from gay and lesbian adults from all over the United States.
The song entitled, â€œIt Gets Better,â€ features lyrics that support gay youth and anyone who feels out of place or ostracized for being different. Â The video for the single depicts images of real people in real situations â€“ from a homeless man to gay couples to teens and other minorities.
Claudia Lee decided to join the â€œIt Gets Betterâ€ project to extend a hand in friendship and support to her peers.
â€œI want my song to touch people who are in need of help, support, and someone to talk to. If I can just help one person from not taking their life because of bullying, then I have succeeded.â€
