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
"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.
