‘1-800-273-8255’ is a powerful song about people who struggle with thoughts of taking their own lives and lays out lyrical reasons why to not follow through. The video, which features big name actors Don Cheadle, Luis Guzman and Matthew Modine follows the story of a gay black teen with a white boyfriend who struggles with his sexuality and contemplates suicide, then decides to get help by calling the helpline number which ultimately saves his life.
