Project aim

To Create and Promote a Music Video to the song 'Normal Life' written and performed by Scott Ballard which will promote the charity, Crohns and Colitis UK.

Yes!!!! We have reached our FIRST Target but we still NEED help!


My name is Scott Ballard and I am a musician from the Midlands.

My brother Jake has been fighting Ulcerative Colitis for nearly two years now. Chronically fatigued, in pain, off work and occasionally hospitalised, I was shocked at the effect this disease can cause. I had heard of Crohns but not really known a lot about it, but since Jakes diagnosis I have tried to educate myself as best I can.

This is why I decided to write a song for him, other IBD (Imfammatory Bowel Disease) sufferers and also anyone who has had their life turned upside down by an illness. It seemed that all Jake wanted was to be back at work or in the gym and to have a, 'Normal Life' again. 

Normal Life, will be released with all of the single download profits going to Crohns and Colitis UK. The video will aid the promotion of the single but more importantly be another media to raise awareness regarding the Crohns and Colitis conditions.


This video will be shot by the great John Edwards of Sighthoundfilms who won an award for my last music video, 'Conscript Me'. Check it here;

Scott Ballard - 'Conscript me'

Please donate to help this project. It will change people lives if we further promote and educate regarding IBD conditions. I am following in the footseps of great campaignes such as #GYBO (Get Your Belly Out) so that we ensure more people are aware of the condition and more sympathetic/receptive to its sufferers. 

Donating isn't the only way to help!

Please share our project, give it a 'like' and all that jazz! This will help us reach as many people as possible and will make you a part of our success!
