A sneak peek at The D", the official unofficial theme song of Detroit. A record, video, and feature length film about the human spirit as exemplified by the people of Detroit. "The D" is a joyous citywide singalong tribute written by Detroit-born Grammy winner Allee Willis with Andrae Alexander in the same uplifting spirit as Willis' first hit, "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire.

In September, 2013, and again at Thanksgiving when Willis led a sing-along from atop the NBC/WDIV Wizard of Oz Thanksgiving Day Parade float, she and her 15 person crew recorded and filmed at over 50 locations around the city. In addition to a plethora of legendary Detroit-born singers, artists, actors and comedians, "The D" captures thousands of Detroiters singing, playing, dancing, clapping, whistling, juggling hubcaps and showing their spirit anyway they can, making this is truly a "Made in Detroit" musical theme as the Motor City re-imagines itself. It's a joyous celebration of life and a story for cities all around the world as they re-conceive and retrofit themselves for the 21st Century.
