Message Music: More than Politics and Religion, Rockers Stereo Fuse Go for the Heart

Toucan Cove Entertainment's Stereo Fuse releases first single, "Beautiful" with a message of esteem and empowerment for youth and teens.

Los Angeles, CA, May 10, 2006 --( Television, Internet, advertising, song lyrics… all deliver mixed signals about what’s good or bad, what’s acceptable and what’s not, and where you can buy something to make you important. In that culture of superficiality, it’s no wonder that substance abuse, depression and suicide of youth and teens are at a staggering high. More than 3.5 million adolescents are clinically depressed. And for girls, the problem is worse — self-esteem centered depression and destructive behavior affects more than half of American girls between 13 and 18.

“Beautiful,” the new single from Stereo Fuse, addresses this important issue with a message of hope, understanding and strength. “I wrote it from the point of view of parents relating to their child – kind of a modern lullaby,” explains Stereo Fuse singer and song writer Colin Hill. “I may not be a parent yet, but I do understand the importance of giving kids positive messages – they face life-altering challenges every day, and need support.”

     well before you Would cry
     And hide your face in shame
     cause it broke my heart to watch
     you endure this hateful game
     cause I knew it way back then
     that there Soon would come a day 
     when all the time I tried to find 
     the perfect words to say
     no need for goodbyes
     just spread your wings and fly

     just leave it behind because a
     brand new day has come
     and you will see if you believe that
     your life has just begun

     Cause you’re beautiful now 
     Yeah you’re more than words can say
     You’re so beautiful now 
     You’re so far from yesterday so beautiful
     oh yes you are
