He told audience that he has also recorded a song about bullying, which has become a big topic across the United States following a string of suicides by gay teenagers who were bullied.

"The song is called 'Purple Sky,'" Chance said. "It's saying a normal sky is a blue sky but it's saying that a purple sky, It's saying that a purple sky is different, but it's still beautiful in its own way, and it's still beautiful in an incredible way."

"The whole meaning for the song is when kids are feeling these horrible things - people are calling them names, being so cruel and judgement, I want kids to, late at night, when they're crying and they feel so low, to listen to the song and just be like, 'You know it's going to get better, it's okay, I'm not the only one going through this,'" he said.

Change said he has been bullied himself but that it "wasn't that bad".

"It still hurts no matter what it is," he said. "I think it's such an important thing. We need to stand up for this because we're losing lives. It's not fair."

From BlogCritics Interview November 27, 2010: 

"Purple Sky" – it is a song that I wrote for the bullying campaign and what's been going on lately. I wrote it with a girl named Danielle Brisebois. She wrote "Unwritten" for Natasha Bedingfield and "Pocketful of Sunshine." One day I went to her house, and I was just like, "We need to do something, Danielle." And she was like, "Well, let's write a song about it." And so we did, and the song came out beautifully. It's so incredible. This song is really in my heart, so I'm really excited for it.

Is there a particular life event, or reason, you have found yourself rallying around the bullying issue?

I was a little bullied back in middle school. I was lucky it was nothing too bad. When some of these kids walk out of school, they're being spat on, punched, hit and pushed to the ground. And nobody deserves that. I'm trying to make this song so when these kids are feeling their lowest low and they're so sad, deprived, depressed and thinking horrible thoughts, and they're crying at eleven o'clock at night, that they listen to this song; that everything gets better and they know that they can make it through it. And that's the main reason why I wrote the song.
