Buffalo Bills safety, Bryan Scott, recently released a brand new music single called “Dedication,” and in support of its release, launched his “Show Your Dedication” video contest to give others a chance to win a free trip to Super Bowl XLVI.
When the NFL lockout paused Scott’s passion earlier this year, he dedicated the extra time toward his other great love — music. Scott collaborated with his music producer brother Brandon Scott to record his recently released debut single, which a rep for the athlete says “showcases his vocal, instrumental and songwriting capabilities.”
For the “Dedicated” music video, Scott engaged some of his NFL friends and competitors who also share a love for music — including Atlanta Falcons’ Ovie Mughelli and Stephen Nicholas, Buffalo Bills’ Arthur Moats, and Jacksonville Jaguars Pro Bowl Montell Owens.
The inspirational song encourages people to “aim for the moon” and stay dedicated to their passions.
According to Scott, the project came naturally. His love for music dates back to age eight when he taught himself to play piano, drums and saxophone.
As part of the “Dedicated” single launch, Scott’s “Show Your Dedication” contest encourages people to produce and submit their own advertisement or promotional video that showcases their personal passion and their dedication. The winner will receive a “Big Game Prize Package” which including two tickets and an all-expense paid trip for two to Super Bowl 2012 in Indianapolis, as well as $5,000 to directly support the continued pursuit of their passion.
Additionally, they will get a feature in the compilation music video for the single.
“I am blessed to have passions that keep me focused and motivated even during challenging times; but I know too many people never get a chance to live in their own passion,” said Scott. “I wanted to make ‘Dedicated’ more than an expression of my own passion, more than a single people can jam to, but also a vehicle for bringing people closer to living out their own passions and fulfilling their dreams.”
