Mending Souls: One Song at a Time?

They have one million views on YouTube, eleven thousand subscribers and are called the cutest couple on earth.

Besides taking my mind off my ugly break up, Bria and Chrissy have showed the power musicians can have on the queer community. The couple have raised the bar where outreach is concerned using their YouTube channel and music.

Chrissy and Bria met in September of 2011, and have been together now for a year and 4 months.

Maybe John Lennon was thinking folks like this couple when he said, "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."

"We were crazy about each other from the moment we met, I wasn't looking for a relationship, but you just can't help the people you fall for and when," said Bria, who also believes the common dominator in the relationship is the fact that they love to help others.

I have been going through a horrific breakup, and their message reminded me that though I was going through my own personal mess, it reaffirmed that there is always a bigger picture. There is always those who are suffering more.

They put everything in perspective, and I suspected this had been the case for others too.

"We realized that we had a unique ability to reach people partially due to the fact that we are a novelty to view on YouTube, but also because we feel we possess the drive and a new way of expressing LGBT and anti bullying tactics," said Bria.

The couple is trying to build awareness around LGBT and anti bullying issues in a musical and humorous manner.

"We want to help with teen suicide prevention, there is so much work to be done, it's sometimes hard when we want to help everyone," said the couple. "Music is the universal language and is something that everyone can relate to, we hope that this will allow more people to find common ground and help to make this world a more understanding place."

Their mantra is pretty simple: one song, one person at a time.

More than colossal views and hopes of fame and fortune, their performances have helped others like one of their fans, a gay male who gets bullied, verbally and physically, everyday.

"He watches our videos and knows every word to all of our songs," says Chrissy. "He says, 'When I'm being bullied I close my eyes and sing all the words to your songs until it ends, it helps me get through'."

Helping others, they say, is what drives their work. As the queer community fights for understanding and rights, I for one and happy for the Bria's and Chrissy's in the world that make mine an easier one to live in.
