Pop singer/songwriter Billie Eilish has been riding on a ton of success for well over a year now. Her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? received a ton of critical and commercial success, resulting in an equally successful tour to promote her music. She's gained a ton of fans throughout all this, who find her music entertaining and good to listen to. But others have taken a liking to it for other reasons.
In the case of 15-year-old Charlotte McLaverty of Australia, she loves Eilish's music because it helped her with a special project. The project in question is an Australian anti-bullying campaign that uses one of Eilish's songs as background music. The song is from the aforementioned debut album called "when the party's over".
The idea to incorporate Eilish's song came from McLaverty noticing that the American artist's songs were playing so much in between takes on the set of the video. Despite the geographical difference and Eilish's vast fame, McLaverty took a chance to reach out to the singer anyways for permission to use her music. The result of this communication was clearly a surprise to the teen.
"We played [Billie’s] songs on set to get the actors in character and everyone was like, 'Oh my gosh, can we use her song?'" she recalled. "So we went to her, and she was like, 'Sure!' [Billie’s] all about that type of stuff, which is amazing."
McLaverty is the young lady who directed the anti-bullying campaign called "Are Your Words Doing Damage?" The video shows a montage of children negatively affected by cyberbullying over time. It was also made to bring attention to a non-profit organization called Dolly's Dream. The charity was founded after the death of 14-year-old Amy "Dolly" Everett, who committed suicide due to the cyberbullying she was enduring. It's certainly a touching gesture to bring even more attention to such an important cause.
