MySQL: Query from within BASH script

This MySQL query is successfully executed from a MySQL command line:
INSERT INTO `Group_Members` (`GroupID`,`MemberID`) SELECT '22', `ID` from `Member` m WHERE `UserSuspended` != '1' AND `PremPlusMember` != '1' AND `PremWebMember` = '1' AND `SMSMember` != '1' AND NOT EXISTS( select null from Group_Members g WHERE g.GroupID = 22 and g.MemberID = m.ID )

However when I try to put it in a BASH script like this, I get an error:
echo "INSERT INTO `Group_Members` (`GroupID`,`MemberID`) SELECT '22', `ID` from `Member` m WHERE `UserSuspended` != '1' AND `PremPlusMember` != '1' AND `PremWebMember` = '1' AND `SMSMember` != '1' AND NOT EXISTS( select null from Group_Members g WHERE g.GroupID = 22 and g.MemberID = m.ID )" | mysql -u xyz -pabc123 -h m.example.com -D xyz_db

you don't run it from "bash" itself, but using mysql command line tool:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/mysql.html
mysql db_name < script.sql > output.tab

Assuming the command and SQL itself is correct, the backticks need to be excaped... try this...

echo "INSERT INTO \`Group_Members\` (\`GroupID\`,\`MemberID\`) SELECT '22', \`ID\` from \`Member\` m WHERE \`UserSuspended\` != '1' AND \`PremPlusMember\` != '1' AND \`PremWebMember\` = '1' AND \`SMSMember\` != '1' AND NOT EXISTS( select null from Group_Members g WHERE g.GroupID = 22 and g.MemberID = m.ID )" | mysql -u xyz -pabc123 -h m.example.com -D xyz_db
