The final sporting activity that Henry films for social media is his running, he often films his runs as part of his vlogs and he always seems to enjoy them.
To find out whether Henry’s love for sport helps influence his music in any way we decided to get in contact and ask him some questions about his two passions!
So then Henry,
They definitely inspire others but what is it that inspires you to write the motivational lyrics in your songs?
Henry Colin Wright: believe it or not the first ever motivational verse that I wrote was actually inspired by my work out routine that I complete daily, one day after I’d done it I felt as if the next time I did it I wanted to have some motivational music so I thought why not write some myself.
Do you think you’ll write any other music inspired by sport in the future?
HCW: Yeah, I think there is quite a high likelihood of that I am always looking for inspiration from everything so I think some of my songs in the future could definitely be inspired a sporting activity or event.
And finally, how many attempts did it take you to make those trick shots in your impossible trick shot YouTube video?
HCW: I think one or two were actually first time but the rest to ages I think
