Stryper frontman Michael Sweet is set to unleash his new solo album, ‘I’m Not Your Suicide,’ this spring, and the vocalist is premiering the video for the title track exclusively with Loudwire and Noisecreep.
Sweet has partnered up with ChildHelp to provide a truly powerful clip. The singer learned that almost half of all children who have been abused consider suicide and his intent was to connect with these children in crisis and offer some peace to those in need. And the video reflects that as young boys and girls hold up signs throughout the clip detailing some of the stats and offering suggestions to ask for help.
The vocalist also hopes to bring some attention to the ChildHelp National Child Abuse Hotline and champion the ChildHelp Speak Up Be Safe program in schools.
Sweet and Big3 Records have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the ‘I’m Not Your Suicide’ single to ChildHelp.
Fans can look for Sweet’s ‘I’m Not Your Suicide’ album arriving in stores May 6 via Big 3 Records. Those who pre-order the disc from MichaelSweet.com will also be able to instantly download another new track — ‘Taking on the World’ — which features a guest appearance by Tony Harnell.
