Bel Air family's 'Baltimore Ravens are Fighters' video takes off on YouTube

The Ingrassias of Bel Air are doing what they can to support the Ravens in their quest for another Super Bowl title.

Scott Ingrassia and his kids are the stars of the hit of "Baltimore Ravens are Fighters - 2013 Super Bowl Song," filmed by his wife, Kacey. It can be viewed at .

The video to the tune of "The Fighter" by Gym Class Heroes, but Ingrassia, who says he's always been a singer/songwriter, wrote his own lyrics, most which are in rap style.

"It was something I had done a long time ago, trying to get record deals. The kids and I always sing," Ingrassia said. "As a songwriter, when I saw 'Bring on Brady,' we had been thinking about doing something for a while, and when we saw that, we thought it was great. We just wanted to show our support, so I wrote a song."

Ingrassia does all the rapping in the song, while his oldest daughter, Emma, 10, who's in the middle in the video, sings the chorus. His other two daughters, Maddie, 8, on the right, and Ava, 6, dance and add their own lyrics.

The family shot and posted the video on YouTube Thursday night, but it wasn't until Friday night it really started to take off. It's been posted and shared all over Facebook and had almost 6,000 hits on YouTube by noon Saturday.

"I got a private message Friday from Dennis Pitta, who posted it to his Facebook page and within minutes it took off," Ingrassia said.

Having Pitta see it makes it worthwhile for the Ingrassias.

"I love it. We were all so excited. It really kind of makes you feel good, makes you feel like you're on the road with them, so it's really neat," Ingrassia said.

Ultimately, the Ingrassias just want to support the Ravens and have everyone to keep enjoying the song.

He'd like it to get some more views, for more Ravens to see it and, he jokes, maybe get some Super Bowl tickets...

"I really want people to enjoy it and have fun with it at least for the week leading up to the Super Bowl," Ingrassia said.

Ingrassia said he looked into going to New Orleans, but it's too expensive, so he and his family will be watching and rooting from home, where maybe they'll be working on the follow-up to "Baltimore Ravens are Fighters."

How's "Baltimore Ravens are Super Bowl XLVII Winners" sound?
