Richland boy now the star of a rock video


LOS ANGELES (WKZO) --A Richland boy who became temporarily famous after his mother created a "Facebook" page to celebrate his birthday earlier this year,  is now the star of a music video.

Colin Cunnigham told his mother last February he didn't want a party because he didn't think he had any friends and was bullied at school

. She went on facebook and millions “friended him” from all over the world.

The Los-Angeles based band "Galvanized Souls" was inspired by Colin’s story and thought it was perfect for their single "Carry On" which focuses on anti-bullying efforts.

The Cunninghams were in California for last night’s video premiere.'  

The band isn't much older than Colin.  They range in age from 15 to 17.
