Frenchie Davis, the beloved "American Idol" and "The Voice" contestant who came out as bisexual last year, is now lending her voice to The Friend Movement, a campaign against bullying.

In the video above Davis reflects on being bullied for being overweight when she was younger, but ends the confessional with an uplifting message for teens struggling with the same issue.

"You know, they can call you fat all they want," she says. "It's not going to change the fact that you are destined to do amazing things with your life."
