Just like what he did to celebrate National Coming Out Day in October last year, prolific composer-lyricist Scott Alan has allowed anew the free download of BLESSING, sung live in 2010 by "American Idol" Season One Finalist RJ Helton, to honor Gay Pride.

Featured in Scott's album titled "Keys," released in 2008, BLESSING was originally recorded as a duet by Tituss Burgess (Disney's "The Little Mermaid") and Jen Colella ("Chaplin"). The song is a moving plea for familial acceptance after coming out of the closet.

Scott once wrote, "I'm very fortunate to have parents that have accepted me for who I am; but it wasn't always like that. It didn't start that way, and this song [BLESSING] was written within an hour after I came out to my mother. Not everyone is accepting. 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; some find it hard to accept at all."

Since 2003, Broadway and West End Theatre's elite have been singing for Scott, including Jonathan Groff, Shoshana Bean, Stephanie J. Block, Sutton Foster, Norm Lewis, Lea Salonga, Ramin Karimloo, Rachelle Ann Go, and Cheyenne Jackson, who also recorded BLESSING four years ago to benefit The Trevor Project, a national organization that provides crisis and suicide prevention services to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders.

Scott's newly released digital EP, titled '"Anything Worth Holding On To," is now available on Amazon and iTunes. The album includes songs written and performed by the composer-lyricist himself.
