Detroit has an exciting new Theme Song!

Drawing from the symbolism of the annual 4th of July Fireworks Show on the Detroit River, "Light Up Detroit" celebrates the Spirit, Energy and Passion of all Detroiters.

Music inspires. It motivates. It binds people together. Especially here in Motown. With its positive lyrics, appealing melody and rhythmic beat, this song is a call to action for the people of this great city to work together to help build a better Detroit.

So, be a part of this campaign and show your love for Detroit. As the lyrics say, "Get on Board, Join Us".  Do your part to "Light Up Detroit" and "Make Detroit Shine" !!!
