Brian Anthony Sings At The Special Olympics

International pop and dance recording artist Brian Anthony performed his self-penned ballad “Champion” at the Special Olympics Summer Games in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. He kicked-off the games with a performance of his inspirational song during the traditional torch lighting ceremony on July 23, 2009.


Brian is a strong advocate for the Special Olympics. He originally wrote “Champion” for the 2005 Special Olympics Summer Games. He then had the opportunity to shoot the music video for the heartfelt anthem on the Great Wall of China and at the entrance to the Forbidden City during the 2008 Summer Olympics.


Last night the 20th Century Fox’s team of major motion picture editors helped Brian by incorporating footage of the athletes in the music video that ran during his special performance at the 2009 Special Olympics Summer Games.


"I was honored to perform and I wanted to reflect the real meaning of the song by using footage of the athletes competing in the games from across the globe. I feel that within them lies the heart of a true champion. Their courage and determination is so inspiring to me.”


The performance took place in a new high-tech hockey stadium and on two gigantic LED screens. Entertainment Tonight Canada and Much Music were there covering the event, which was attended by some 6,000 spectators, athletes, volunteers and family members.


At the performance, Brian also premiered his new single, “Electricity,” featuring rapper Ya Boy.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
