X-Factor Teen Reed Deming's New Song Seeks To Inspire Self-Acceptance Movement By America's Youth

X-Factor Teen Reed Deming's New Song Seeks To Inspire Self-Acceptance Movement By America's Youth

San Antonio, TX (Top40 Charts/ Silver Tongue Management) Two years ago, 13 year old X-Factor Season 2 semi-finalist Reed Deming was dubbed the "Next Justin Bieber" in a YouTube video of his live audition in front of judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, L.A. Reid and Demi Lovato. That video has nearly 35 million views to date and now, at age 15, it's plain to see he's anything but another Bieber. As Deming prepares to release his new single Crash Test Dummy (Broken) on iTunes June 7, 2014, he has taken to YouTube to explain the song's message of self-acceptance.

"This song, to me, is really about the acceptance of yourself. There's so much that teenagers and young people have to go through these days. And there is so much more pressure that is put on them by other people: by society, by the media, by their peers. It's just a confusing journey figuring out who you are in this world and who you want to become. And I feel that despite your flaws and your imperfections, you need to accept who you are and you may not be perfect but you need to
understand that no one else is."

The Behind The Scenes video is set at Orb Studios in Austin, Texas, while Reed is in the live Crash Test Dummy (Broken) recording session with producer Matt Noveskey of platinum selling alternative rock band Blue October. Noveskey points out that this song is a bit of a new, more mature musical direction for Reed and he's a fan of the song's inspirational message. "I think everyone can relate to that no matter what generation you are." Noveskey is not the first to say that Reed seems "wise beyond his years". He has also been called "the emperor kid" by rapper /producer Will.I.Am and an "old soul" by other musicians and teachers. Reed comes across as a deep thinker who cares about people and wants to make the world a better place.

"Every day my fans reach out to me about their struggles with self-acceptance. Some even talk about hurting themselves which is heart-breaking. I hope this song lets them know that I care about them and want them to be happy with who they are." Reed explains. He really hopes that the self- acceptance message in Crash Test Dummy (Broken) will resonate with people of all ages and backgrounds. And, if the growing number of fan comments on his video are any indication, it will:

"I'm speechless that you are able to articulate a message that speaks to every single human no
matter what generation, race, or social status! You have an amazing gift Reed."

"This brought tears to my eyes. Such an inspirational video. I can't wait for the song! Love you"

"I haven't listened the whole song yet and I'm almost crying. The message is so beautiful."

Fans are also starting a Twitter campaign in support of the self-acceptance message. #BeYou
