Parker Matthews is an emerging pop singer with a troubled past but a bright future. Matthews learned early the realities of growing up different, struggling with depression, bullying and suicidal thoughts. But, inspired by the music of Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, and Lady Gaga, he developed his innate talent for songwriting and performing. He released his first single Lost with You to critical acclaim. He has now emerged not only as a popular pop singer who spreads positivity and courage through his music and lyrics, but as an advocate for suicide prevention and anti-bullying, supporting The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and LGBTQ. He has released his second single, Hit and Run and a new video.
