Former Maine Singer Shannon Selig Releases Powerful Song + Video About ‘Bullying’
Shannon Selig, formerly of North Yarmouth and now an up-and-coming country music singer who lives in Nashville has a powerful viral video out concerning bullying. She tells the Bangor Daily News, “I was bullied in high school, and now I’m an example. I’ve been there and I’m OK.”
Shanon has won the ‘New England Country Music Awards’ for ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ and ‘Female Entertainer of the Year’ and earned ‘North American Country Music Awards Horizon Awards’ for female vocalist and songwriter.
Her song, “Show Me The Light,” was co-written with Jimmy Buffett bassist Jim Mayer. It was written in the memory of Ashlynn Connor and Jasmine McClain, 10-year-old girls in Illinois and North Carolina, respectively, who committed suicide last year. They both reportedly had being bullied in school.
