“Award-winning singer Torrey Mercer sang Monday about the dangers of bullying and how to stop it at assemblies for more than 500 kindergarten through eighth-grade students at Joshua Cowell Elementary School in Manteca. Mercer, 20, was a victim of bullying at an early age, and she is passionate about the cause, wanting to use her music to reach out to others and to help make a statement about the truths of bullying. She was invited to the school by the parents of Blake Coronado, a Cowell student who was bullied last year at the school. "Her message is so powerful, it's actually given my son a new confidence," said Renee Coronado. "If she could just reach one person, it would be awesome. It's a blessing to have her here."”
“Currently [playing] Falling Again on repeat. [Torrey is] so beautiful. [Her] voice, [her] personality, [her] appearance, everything. I'm sure [she is] gonna make it big one day and then everybody [will know] who Torrey Mercer is!”
“[Torrey's Music] is the kind of Pop music that is really timeless”
"Take a step into Torrey’s life, and you will know she doesn’t do anything without purpose. She steps into projects, willingly, fearlessly, though she always gives herself purpose in the pursuit of her vocal career."
"[Torrey] has been selected to be part of a six-girl tour this summer on the East Coast to promote "No Bullying" to kids...Torrey is passionate about this cause because she was a victim of bullying in her younger years."
“At the age of 17, Canyon Crest Academy senior Torrey Mercer has already had quite the singing career. Ever since she was 9 years old, she has dabbled in musical theater, which later morphed into solo singing. Today, she is on the cusp of her career as she releases her first song in stores: “Goodbye (That’s Enough).” The first real turning point, according to Torrey, was the time she sang for the Chargers game. “It was the biggest audience I’d ever performed for—55,000 people. The rush I got was so inspiring. It encouraged me to sing more and made it clear to me that singing was what I wanted to do for, possibly, the rest of my life.” ”
