Cooper Bloom, a singer-songwriter and performer from just outside Toronto, Ontario, who proudly identifies as part of the LGTBQ community. His goal is to create a community through his music where people are inspired to be true to themselves and follow their dreams.
The inspiration behind his positive new song, “Be Alright,” came from a moment when Cooper and his boyfriend were holding hands in public, and were met with hateful homophobic slurs from strangers passing by. Instead of feeling defeated, it only made him more determined to celebrate their love and to show that they won’t be silenced or ashamed.
“While the song was inspired by my own experience, its message of finding strength in love and persevering through challenges is universal,” says Cooper. “I think many people can relate to feeling judged or discriminated against for simply being themselves, and ‘Be Alright’ is a reminder that no matter what obstacles we may face, we can choose to stay strong and lead with love.”
