Blessing - Scott Alan

Keys: the Music of Scott Alan

We now host many pages of Scott Alan's songs:

Songwriter Scott Alan writes about "Blessing" that "I am very fortunate to have parents that have accepted me for whom I am, but it wasn't always like that. It didn't start that way and this song was written within an hour after I came out to my mother. Not everyone is excepting. It takes time for many parents to reprogram the 'dream' they have for their child to a new direction. Some parents take time to accept this new information and some find it hard to accept at all."

"Blessing" is included on Scott's second CD, Keys, sung by Tituss Burgess and Jenn Colella. It's also been performed in a number of Scott's concerts by different artists.

"Blessing" Benefit Single with Cheyenne Jackson

In June, 2010, Scott worked with Broadway's Cheyenne Jackson to produce a benefit recording of the song. It is also available as an instrumental version (use the rightmost amazon link to purchase.) All proceeds from the new singles go to The Trevor Project and the Hetrick-Martin institute.

About The Trevor Project: Established in 1998 to coincide with the HBO airing of the award winning short film, Trevor, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, The Trevor Helpline is the only nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. The Trevor Helpline is a free and confidential service that offers hope and someone to talk to, 24/7. The Trevor Helpline's trained counselors will listen and understand without judgment. If you or someone you know would like to talk to one of our highly trained counselors, dial 866-4-U-TREVOR. thetrevorproject.org.

About The Hetrick-Martin Institute: For thirty years The Hetrick-Martin Institute has put into action our core belief, that all young people - regardless of sexual orientation or identity - deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to thrive. In creating that safe haven, the cycle of neglect, abuse, and violence experienced by many at-risk lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth because of their sexual orientation, stops at our doors. Through a comprehensive package of innovative and creative after-school programs, supportive services, and referrals, Hetrick-Martin, with its experienced professional staff, is a leader in caring for our most vulnerable at-risk youth. The Hetrick-Martin Institute is also the host to the Harvey Milk High School, an inclusive voluntary New York City public high school focusing on the educational needs of children who are in crisis or at risk of physical violence and/or emotional harm in a traditional educational environment. hmi.org.

"Blessing" is available on Scott's CD "Keys", performed by Tituss Burgess and Jenn Colella:
