TJ: It’s Get Up Mornings with Erica Campell Erica Campbell and if you’ve ever watched the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration, you’ve seen the NFL Players Choir sing, and tonight at 8:00 p.m. Eastern 7 Central on America’s Got Talent, you can see the choir of competing players. Joining us today are three of the choir members, Bryan Scott, he played with the Falcons, Saints and Bills. Jamon Brown, he played with the Rams, Falcons and Eagles, and Bryan McKinney, Jr. He played with the Vikings, Ravens and Dolphins.
CLAW: The U!
TJ: Griff might not be able to control this thing this morning. Hi guys!
NFL Players Chorus: Hello. Good Tuesday.
GRIF: Absolutely. Moving straight to the man, B. Scott, you were also crowned Buffalo Bills Man of the Year. The Players Choir has been around for about 14 years and we always look forward to seeing you attend the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration. What’s it like to be a part of this and what inspired you to join, mate?
Bryant Scott: Man, that’s it, it’s always a blessing to be part of the Players Choir man. You know what inspired me, what made me move forward, was being raised in the church and being in the youth choir, always around the music. It allows, it gives us a whole new locker room feel and allows guys to come together and be really transparent with each other because there are things that we go through that we might not be able to share with the world, but it creates this safe dressing room space, that we can come together in common theme as if we love the Lord and love the music. And you know, nobody’s perfect, but we really try to walk in the right direction and we use ourselves to strengthen ourselves.
GRIFF: Yeah, you better preach sir. JB in 2017, he was the NFC conference champion, man. How long have you been in the player’s choir? And did you have to audition to get in like everyone else?
Jamon Frontn: Man, listen, I’m pretty new to the choir. You know I’ve been here probably about a month
GRIFF: NEW MEAT!
JB: (Laughs) I’m new to the team, but I was just excited that they reached out to me and gave me the opportunity to join a group of guys like this.
TJ: Yes! Now Bryant McKinnie Jr. You’re a Pro-Bowler and a Super Bowl 47 champion.
TJ: How was the audition for America’s Got Talent?
Bryant McKinnie: joined at the end of 2005. And I went back and forth, back and forth and fortunately, Mélanie continues to contact me to be part of it. So it was a process myself. Mélanie, my mother is the one who introduced me to Mélanie and who was part of it. And I’ve been happy to be a part of it ever since.
GRIFF: I know that’s true TJ and then notice TJ, it’s not little guys like these, it’s the kickers or the punters singing these giant men, you know, singing all over.
TJ: Well, you know, and the sisters always like to see the man who loves Jesus and sing gospel music. So it’s a nice sight to see when the brethren praise the Lord now, B. Scott, what’s your favorite gospel song to say and why?
BS: You know what, “Let Go and Let God” by Dwayne Wood. And I have this thing, don’t I? And I always say to people, to guys who hear me say, look, it’s either going to work or it’s going to work. And that’s the reason because if you drop it and put it in the hands of God, it can’t work. And we’re performing this song at church and I’ll tell you Man, JB he’ll be conducting this song too. It will bring me tears like the spirit.
TJ: Really fast. It’s like a trick, a trick? You know, you’re on America’s Got Talent. You are in the NFL. Now you sing Are you like professional singers from now on? Or what are we really doing here?
JB: They found me in a karaoke bar (Laughs)
TJ: We talk to Bryan Scott, Jamon Brown and Bryant McKinney. They are members of the NFL Players Choir and you can catch them singing Love and Jesus not America’s Got Talent tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern 7 Central on NBC. Thank you and we wish you the best of luck on America’s Got Talent.
