Pop recording artist, philanthropist and infamous Water Mill castle owner Ivan Wilzig, best known as Sir Ivan, has released a new single titled “Kiss All the Bullies Goodbye” in support of his anti–bullying campaign with his charity, The Peaceman Foundation.
Produced by superstar British record producer and trance artist Paul Oakenfold and featuring vocals by American pop star Taylor Dane, the song is a fast-paced dance with a positive message.
Sir Ivan, who created pop-dance remakes of 1960s and ‘70s hits, including “Imagine,” “San Francisco,” and “Live For Today,” is a strong advocate against violence and intolerance. Named for his Peaceman superhero character, Sir Ivan founded The Peaceman Foundation in 2005 as a non–profit charity that battles hatred, violence and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
In conjunction with the release of his “Kiss All the Bullies Goodbye” track, Sir Ivan has pledged to donate a total of $100,000 through The Peaceman Foundation to 10 key nonprofit organizations that combat bullying and intolerance, including: The It Gets Better Project; the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Educational Network (GLSEN); the Born This Way Foundation; Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center; Parents & Friends of Lesbians & Gays (PFLAG); Stomp Out Bullying; Campus Pride; Love is Louder/The Jed Foundation; The Trevor Project; and the Anti–Defamation League. The donation will include all net proceeds from video views, song streams and downloads of “Kiss All the Bullies Goodbye.”
