My middle daughter, Sydney, age 7, was being bullied in her new class. She responded by writing a song called Believe In Yourself. She wrote the lyrics and melody all by herself.
I found it catchy enough that I came up with some chords.
I liked that enough that I bought a bass for my wife and a drum set for my oldest son. Then we formed a band, Calling Out. That was five months ago.
Last week we performed Believe In Yourself on the local high school stage, in front of a mosh pit of elementary school girls. I posted it on Facebook, but since I'm not sure the barnson.org crew are all connected to me there, I wanted to post it here as well.
My kids really want to reach 500 views (modest, right?), so if you like it, don't be shy about sharing it.
