William Shatner, others honor Helen Bousquet, mother of "At Fenway" singer Brian Evans

November 13, 2012 -

William Shatner, the legendary film and television icon who co-star's with Brian Evans in the upcoming music video ""At Fenway,"" honored Brian's mother Helen Bousquet by allowing her son to utilize a photo of the two for an upcoming story in a major national newspaper discussing his mother. Shatner granted the permission ""in honor of your mother.""
Evans was texting Shatner from The Holy Family Hospital on the evening she died following what was supposed to be a routine knee surgery on October 5th, 2012.
""He couldn't say much to bring me much comfort, all he could say was that he was so sorry that I was experiencing it. My mother absolutely loved Bill, having first met her in Key West, Florida back in 2000 when we did a show together,"" says Evans. ""He was a hero of my mom's, like he is many people throughout the world.""
""At Fenway"" - The Music Video, features Helen Bousquet. She co-produced the music video with her son. William Shatner portrays the home plate umpire in the music video.
""My mother, me, and Andy Biltz put every day of our lives into putting this music video together for a year and five months. The Boston Red Sox helped us, Major League Baseball helped us, and we truly appreciate it. Mr. Shatner, and my mother said so, was absolutely the only person we could think of that would fit this like a glove,"" says Evans. ""Although I am sad that she left us just ten days after we filmed it, it means the world to me that she's also featured in the music video.""
And it was footage of his mother that also didn't happen, when the production thought it accidentally deleted all of the shots filmed of his mother. Evans then contacted Digital Intelligence in Wisconsin, who found the thought-to-be accidentally deleted files. Evans received them back this past Saturday.
""In a sense, I was able to get my mom back, so I really appreciate what Digital Intelligence did,"" says Evans. ""It would not have been the same to me without her getting the credit she deserved.""
Bousquet also wrote an upcoming NASCAR song that Evans will record later this year, produced by multiple Grammy Award winning producer Narada Michael Walden, who is Evans' producer. Walden produced all of Whitney Houston's #1 hits, as well as Elton John, George Michael, Aretha Franklin, and Brian Evans debut album. His mother wrote the song ""Croonerman,"" which will be recorded next year. Walden met Bousquet earlier this year.
The music video was made after the song debuted at #3 on last year. The National Baseball Hall of Fame has added the song to it's library, where the crew expects the music video will also be headed to. ""At Fenway"" is the only song about Fenway Park in Boston ever to be licensed by Major League Baseball in the history of the park.
""My mom did it all. She was a high school graduate, then was a Certified Nurses aid, then became a writer. But through it all, she was my mom, and she did everything for me. Every good thing I have ever done was because of her, and every bad thing was because I didn't listen to her,"" concludes Evans.
