Tim Tebow – He is probably the luckiest man right now because English singer John Parr, known for his hit 1985 song St. Elmo’s Fire, has remade the song as a tribute to the Denver Broncos quarterback after being inspired of how he lives his life as being a great example.
David Foster and John Parr collaborated on writing the song in 1985. It was featured on the sound track for the ‘brat pack’ movie also titled St. Elmo’s Fire. Now there’s a version about Tim Tebow.
However, the reason the song was originally written, was for another athlete named Rick Hansen, a Canadian Paralympian that was traveling the world in his wheelchair on a tour called ‘The Man In Motion Tour’. Which was for the cause to raise awareness about spinal cord injuries.
Now due to the seemingly unending will of the Denver Broncos quarterback to win and the way he has become a role model, Parr has rewritten the song in honor of his efforts. The song has simply been retitled “Tim Tebow’s Fire.”
“I was inspired by Tim Tebow, so I wanted to modify the lyrics … in his honor of the way that he lives his life as being a great example,” Parr told FOX 31 Denver.
Twitter posted Monday morning that it recorded 9,420 tweets per second after Broncos QB Tebow threw an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 29-23.
“Last night @TimTebow lead the @Denver_Broncos to an overtime playoff win and a new sports Tweets per second record: 9420,” Twitter announced.
