JUNO & CCMA-nominated Saskatchewan Country artist DONNY PARENTEAU introduced the anti-bullying campaign Bully Free Zone to Canada recently. At a media conference/school presentation at James L Alexander School in Saskatoon Fairview, Donny spoke about the epidemic of bullying and premiered his new song and music video for Imagine A World. MLA Jennifer Campeau, Legislative Secretary to the Minister of Education (Anti-Bullying Initiative) commented on the government’s perspective and support of the Bully Free Zone campaign. The song has been released to radio and is available for FREE download to the public at www.donnyparenteau.com. Imagine A World is performed in song and on video by Donny Parenteau with Michele Dubois. In addition to a thriving music career, Donny Parenteau speaks passionately to groups on a wide variety of topics, but most dear to his heart is the series he does for schools entitled It Starts With A Dream. Recently after one of his talks, Donny had a conversation with a young girl who had been bullied. He was so moved by this conversation that he wrote Imagine A World. It’s written as a message to both victims and instigators of bullying. Donny is a talented multi-instrumentalist who performs with energy and enthusiasm on the fiddle, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, and the unique mandocaster. After 12 years touring with Neal McCoy, this seasoned entertainer has performed with numerous country artists and genuine music icons such as Tim McGraw, Shania Twain and Reba McEntire.
