Detroit has an anthem? What?! Who knew!? According to Abc7:
Songwriter Allee Willis, known for her hit songs such as Friend’s theme, “I’ll be there for you,” and Earth Wind and Fire’s “September.”
And now, she’s about to add another big song under her belt: Detroit’s unofficial Anthem.
“The D” debuts Thursday evening at the DIA, along with a mini-documentary on Willis’ five-year efforts to get this song produced.Willis calls the song a “love letter to Detroit” and the video a “micro-documentary.”
She recorded 5,000 Detroit voices singing her song and laid them down on one song. The voices range from legendary musicians such as Martha Reeves to housekeepers.
