1-800-APE-TALK

Technology is so cool. I use an android device for my cell phone. Because Android is a Google creation I have the power of Google in the palm of my hands (rarely ever up to my ear). Months ago I did some Google searching on "suicide awareness", I'm not certain what the reason was, but I did it. Today I received a notification of a Teen Vogue article written related to suicide awareness!!

Cool, right?

The article specifically talks about a new song that the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline partnered with three artists to write "1-800-273-8255." That's right, the title of the song is the phone number to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. 

Give a listen.

From the article;

“In 1-800, we hear a person at the end of their rope who has called the suicide prevention lifeline. Plain and simply; they are ready to commit suicide, feeling they have nowhere else to turn and are expressing the reasons why they wish to commit this act," Logic said in a press release. "We then hear words from the perspective of the lifeline operator who in turn gives them many reasons to keep fighting for their life; expressing that this act is a permanent solution to a temporary situation. Finally, we hear the caller express their new lease on life and outlook on a life that they thought was over but had actually been far from it all along."

Alessia Cara may be the only one of the three artists you've heard of. She's had a few big hits recently.

Info on Khalid and Logic there.
