Here’s a feel good story for you: The Grand Rapids music video below was filmed May 22nd, with 5,000 people, and involved a major shutdown of downtown Grand Rapids, which was filled with marching bands, parades, weddings, motorcades, bridges were on fire, and helicopter take offs. Why?

This video was created as an official response to the Newsweek article calling Grand Rapids a “dying city.” The city united to fight off this stigma of a “dying city” and as Rob Bliss, Director & Executive Producer of the video said: “We disagreed strongly, and wanted to create a video that encompasses the passion and energy we all feel is growing exponentially, in this great city. We felt Don McLean’s “American Pie,” a song about death, was in the end, triumphant and filled to the brim with life and hope.”

Roger Ebert calls this “The Greatest Music Video Ever Made.”
