FRISCO – Skyler Hunter, Junior at Heritage High School in Frisco, is one talented musician.
“I’ve always been writing piano music since I was in the third grade, but I just recently started writing lyrics to my songs,” Hunter explains.
Oh No, you won’t read any pop music shake your booty lyrics in his songs. Instead, serious, deep, and thoughtful writing straight to your heart.
“Constant fighting…it is frightening…We are lost…in need of guiding,” Hunter sings.
Hearing about all the terrible terrorist attacks in the world Hunter wrote, Young and Free, a song about world peace.
“I had a project in student council about doing a meaningful act and it was due on Monday and on Friday the Paris terrorist attacks happened. That completely changed my idea of what I was going to do.”
Hunter was going to save the song for his first album. Instead he produced and recorded it in three days releasing it in unison with a Go Fund Me account for the Red Cross.
“To benefit the people affected in these types of attacks and just any tragedy around the world during the holiday season.”
