Our music is all about having fun and feeling good about being yourself and being an individual, so we are naturally excited about these opportunities to support kids who deal with these issues everyday.”

Southwest Career and Technical Academy showed the biggest commitment to combat bullying. All middle and high schools in all of Clark County participated in this awareness campaign to quash bullying in their area schools. R&R Partners, together with partner organizations throughout Nevada, have created a campaign to provide resources to parents, students and educators on how to combat bullying in Nevada. In addition to a variety of print and broadcast materials, the campaign has designed curriculum for implementation by the Clark County School District during an annual “Week of Respect” as declared by Governor Sandoval.
On December 9, Hot Chelle Rae will be performing to a sold out crowd alongside the star-studded line up which includes Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, David Guetta, LMFAO, Foster the People, and Gym Class Heroes at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
