Prevost and Maguire debuted their new song “Let Love Conquer All
” at the Imagine No Bullying kick-off in Saskatoon. The Saskatchewan musicians wrote and recorded the song to help spread their antibullying message. To listen to and download the song, click here
Following last spring’s Imagine No Bullying concert on the Saskatchewan Red Cross’ Day of Pink, requests started coming in from schools, students and parents to bring it to their community. Both musicians have their own personal stories about bullying – Prevost growing up in small town Saskatchewan, and Maguire in Northern Ireland where bullying and prejudices were based on religion.
A sincere thank you to the Imagine No Bullying partners: Saskatoon Downtown Lions, Canadian Red Cross and the Saskatchewan Country Music Association.
