ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Indie Orlando singer/songwriter Craymo won Best Song for his anti-bullying anthem Be Myself in the 3rd edition of the Worldwide Music Contest out of over 1200 entries from songwriters all over the world.
The winning song Be Myself is an inspirational electronic pop anti-bullying anthem about embracing your individuality. Craymo dedicates the song to anyone who has ever been bullied, teased or made fun of for being different.
Craymo is a LGBT artist and was bullied growing up for being gay and for wearing glasses. Craymo says, "I grew up gay and was bullied and teased as a teenager and young adult and had to pretend that I was straight to keep from being bullied, verbally and physically. I wanted to give back and create a song about embracing your individuality, an empowering song about courage to possibly help those who may be going through the same things, to help them with their self-confidence. I want to let kids know that it is OK to be different, it's OK to just be yourself, no matter what anyone else thinks."
Gary Root, reviewer for Skope Magazine summed it up, "Craymo makes musical magic with a message in this upbeat, dance party with passion and purpose. In music, breaking rules and challenging conventional wisdom are often deliberate efforts to establish a marketing niche, but for Craymo it probably feels more like natural state of mind and being."
Be Myself serves up an inviting pop dance number geared to blending 1980's pop like George Michael and some of today's chart topping music like Olly Murs, Will Young, Ronan Keating, Robbie Williams and Maroon 5. Be Myself also won Best Pop/Rock Song in the August 2015 Akademia Music Awards and was a finalist for Best Pop Song in the 2016 Indie Music Channel Awards and finalist for Best Pop Song in the 2015 Hollywood Music In Media Awards. Be Myself also recently held the #2 position on the Euro Indie Music Chart. Radio stations can email Moho Productions below for a direct download link.
