Metro Detroiters invited to take part in the musical documentary taping at Fisher Building
DETROIT, Mich., September 16, 2013—Southfield-based Farbman Group, a leading full-service real estate company, announced today that it is participating in Grammy Award winner Allee Willis’ “The D,” a documentary chronicling the creation of a song the artist has written and dubbed as ‘the unofficial theme song of the Motor City.’ Stepping up to do its part to help, Farbman Group is proud to invite local residents who love their hometown to the Fisher Building at 10:30 a.m.- 1:30 p.m. on September 23 to take part in the filming. Andrew V. Farbman, CEO of Farbman Group, made the announcement.
During the month of September, Willis, a native Detroiter, is traveling throughout the city visiting local landmarks inviting residents to be filmed as they sing along to the song about Detroit’s history and unwavering spirit. Willis is a Grammy, Emmy and Tony award-winning and nominated songwriter, artist, director and producer. She is most notably known for co-writing “I’ll Be There For You,” the theme song to the hit TV series Friends, as well as penning Earth, Wind and Fire’s songs “September” and “Boogie Wonderland.”
“We are very inspired by Allee’s creative project and her energetic passion for Detroit,” Farbman said. “We are proud to be based locally and are happy to step up to participate along with local citizens in such a unique experience to share with the world what makes this city and its people great.”
