Students at Teasley Elementary are taking their weekly anti-bullying song to the big time! Earlier this month, Roxanne Mungin, the Music Specialist at Teasly, was contacted by the producers of “America’s Got Talent” about possibly performing Teasley’s anti-bullying anthem,”B-U-L-L-Y-I-N-G,” on this season of the show, set to air this summer.
Mungin co-wrote the song in 2011 with Teasley teacher Patrenia Gooden and Rashan Ali Smith. Since then, the song has been a staple at Teasley.
“All the students know the words, they know the motions,” Mungin said. “We play it after the morning announcements at least once a week, usually on Fridays, and the kids love it.”
Now, Teasley students have come together to create a music video for the song, in hopes that they will be selected to perform on NBC’s hit show “America’s Got Talent.”
“We hope this song will become an anthem, not just for our school, but for schools around the world,” Gooden said.
