Two Milwaukee teens are taking bullying into their own hands, making a music video as part of Anti-Bullying Month.  

"Basically we're just standing for the message that bullying is a huge issue in our communities today," said Ebony Loren, singer-songwriter.

Loren, 16, hopes the music video will get her peers' attention.  

"If you're just getting talked at I feel like a lot of youth they are less likely to listen as opposed to if they heard the message through a song or some other form of art," Loren said.

Fellow singer-songwriter Jahbarri Bradshaw, 15, said the words to the song, "No Amount of Tears," are powerful.

"In the chorus it says breaking me down will never build you up," Bradshaw said.

The teens helped write their parts of the song.

"My version is mainly about putting you into perspective of someone who is being bullied," Bradshaw said.

The singer used personal experience from being bullied in middle school.

"I have been pushed around a little bit," Bradshaw said.

The song is about bringing awareness to a growing problem and giving hope to those in the middle.

"I hope that they see if they're ever in a position where like they themselves are getting bullied or they see it they'll know it that there's light at the end of the tunnel.  Like it will get better and there's things that can change," Loren said.

The music video will debut at North Division High School on Unity Day, Oct. 25.
