Lynch was even rewarded an Xbox One for his efforts! Check out the rare interview below…

As she did with all the other players, Williams tried to get Lynch to put his golden pipes on display and join the Destiny’s Child singer in singing a Katy Perry song when she caught up with him backstage, but she didn’t expect a lot of participation. During his time at the podium, Lynch told reporters bluntly, “I’m here so I won’t get fined.”

According to ESPN, the NFL warned Lynch that he could face a $500,000 fine if he failed to make himself available on media day.

“I have to sing?” Lynch asked Williams. “I run into people, though. I think it’d be better if you sing.”

Lynch eventually gave in, belting out the chorus from “Nights Like This” featured on the soundtrack of the 1991 classic The Five Heartbeats.

The Xbox One will be donated to Lynch’s Fam 1st Family Foundation, launched by himself and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joshua Johnson.

“One lucky kid from my foundation will be going home with an Xbox One as soon as I get home from the Super Bowl,” Lynch said. “We actually have an event going on Wednesday back at home — a couple workshops with some kids doing some architect work, which is really good.”

After the football season ends is when the real work begins for Lynch, as he returns to his hometown of Oakland, Calif. to give back to his community.
