Ahmir Anti-Bullying Video Tells Teens They’re ‘Perfect’

R&B group and You Tube sensation Ahmir, who have have put their own unique flavor to songs by Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and many more, have released a new music video in which they cover Pink’s “Perfect” and dedicate the message to teens while urging people to stand up and stop bullying.

Introduced by actress and singer Tichina Arnold and comedian Jessica Kirson, the song shows both the effects of bullying and how it can be overcome by solidarity. In a pointed moment that seems to speak directly to bullies, it also asks “why do you do that?”

Watch it below:

As you may have seen in the video, 20% of proceeds from the sale of this song go to the Make Laughter Count foundation, an organization that brings together comedians and entertainers to raise awareness about bullying.

This video is powerful. Did you ever notice that bullies often travel in packs? Seems like they're not happy with who they are.
