Martinsville, NJ (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
Acclaimed singer-song writer Alexandra Kelly, debuts “Perfectly Imperfect” to raise awareness and funds for The Tyler Clementi Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is guided by the life and story of Rutgers University student, Tyler Clementi. The foundation promotes safe, inclusive and respectful social, environments in homes, schools, campuses, churches and the digital world for LGBT youth and their allies.
The song tells the story of one person’s journey to overcome insecurity, and “set herself free” from destructive thinking by finding her own uniqueness. Celebrating that she is “perfectly imperfect” frees her from peer pressure and clears a path to a more complete life.
Alexandra Kelly says, “To pair a song that means so much to me with a foundation that means so much to me is an incredible opportunity. I hope that through this campaign, people make the pledge to become “an upstander, not a bystander. We are “all perfectly imperfect” just the way we are.”
“As music was a passion in Tyler’s life, we are thrilled to support the talented Alexandra Kelly with her promising career. The song “Perfectly Imperfect” is a beautiful testament to all those who have felt different or struggled to find acceptance. This opportunity to share a song with a meaningful message is one The Tyler Clementi Foundation embraces. Alexandra’s music allows all of us to spread the word and make a positive change in the world around us.” James Clementi, brother of Tyler, stated.
