NEWCASTLE, Oklahoma -- A 15-year-old songwriter in Newcastle is hoping her new song will inspire hope in young people dealing with bullies.

Singer and songwriter Kylie Morgan says she's had to deal with bullying at school.

"You just gotta think about it as, you know, it's going be okay. It's just a phase, and after high school it won't matter anymore."

Morgan's experience and the story of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince -- a Massachusetts student who committed suicide after being bullied -- convinced her to write an anti-bullying song and shoot a video.

"When I heard about Phoebe on the news, it really touched me, her story. And I thought her story deserved to be told," Morgan said.

Part of the video was shot at Newcastle High School, using some of Morgan's classmates. Soon the public will be able to view and buy the video and song.

"They'll actually be able to download ‘Phoebe' or the ring tone for 99 cents, and all the proceeds going to the anti-bullying organizations."

Phoebe Prince is gone, but Kylie Morgan hopes other bullied teens will see her video and gain some strength and hope for their lives.
