Foster The People Speak Out For Bullied Japanese Student

(Radio.com) Foster The People have teamed up with Kind Campaign to raise awareness about bullying. In the video, frontman Mark Foster explains reading about Nanae Munemasa, a Japanese student who has been bullied since elementary school. Like many young girls in Japan, and all over the world, she began skipping school and contemplated suicide.

In the face of adversity Munemasa returned to school and started a blog to help others. She also created a band with her brother called Nanakato and credits music for giving her an outlet to share her voice.

Foster explains that he was so inspired by her story that he is going to bring Nanae Munemasa and her brother to Los Angeles to write and produce a song in a "world-class studio." Read more and watch the video here.
