This video brought tears to my eyes for several reasons. The shame and sadness you could feel in this teen's words were overwhelming and horrific. I will never understand those who believe that shaming and blaming a fat person can ever be helpful. His friend and partner in song is truly a fine soul.
I hope this boy gets the support he deserves. As someone who studied to become a professional opera singer myself, you can take my word on this young man: he is phenomenal.
Apparently, you will have to click on the link to youtube to watch this. Please do. It's a totally amazing clip.
