Trading in a football for a Grammy is exactly what singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger did to make his dreams and aspirations come true. Growing up in Compton, CA and having to become accustomed to the gangs, drugs, and violence that took place in his neighborhood, Bellinger risked it all by passing up on a college football scholarship to pursue his love for music. Now a Grammy Award winning songwriter, who's worked with the likes of Usher, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Jennifer Hudson, Bellinger shows that anything is possible.
Bellinger linked up with Los Angeles clothing brand Popular Demand for their original series 'Risk It All,' that highlights notable individuals of various professions explaining their meaning of having to 'Risk It All.' With cameras documenting Bellinger in his hometown, Bellinger showed his old stomping grounds and where he grew up. Check out the video above.
