The partnership — which includes an original song written by Steven Battey, four-time Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and performed by Ashanti — features TouchPoints wearables culminated with an Indiegogo campaign Tuesday, Oct. 23, raising awareness about childhood anxiety and to get TouchPoints into Boys and Girls Clubs across America.

“We’ve been given the opportunity to join forces on such a large platform, to bring attention to an issue that still has major negative consequences to the health and wellbeing of children,” Vicki Mayo, co-founder of TouchPoint Solution, said in a prepared statement.

Over 25 percent of teenagers struggle with mild to moderate anxiety, according to a press release. TouchPoints, developed over the course of a decade by neuropsychologist Amy Serin, Ph.D, utilize bilateral alternating stimulation tactile technology to alleviate underlying stress within seconds.

Singing for Superheroes, which Mr. Battey and Alix Petersen founded, aims to bring awareness of children facing disabilities and diseases through the power of music, a release states. Mr. Battey won his first Grammy in 2011 and Mr. Petersen has an extensive background in healthcare.

“I think we’ve all experienced anxiety,” Ashanti said. “Sometimes when there’s a lot going on, I will literally wake up in the middle of the night with my stomach in knots. It’s a part of life and I think it’s especially hard for kids.”
