WWCK Gives Back to Flint with Music Video

WWCK_300Cumulus Media’s WWCK-FM (Flint) is giving back to its community with a feel-good positive music video to help the city get through its water crisis.  WWCK-FM morning show hosts Mike McDonald and Stephanie K put the idea for a music video into play after realizing that Flint needed “something uplifting for the city.”

See the video here.

Mike and Stephanie told the MAB:  “The inspiration for our version of the ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ music video certainly came from Justin Timberlake, who talks about his city and his home in the lyrics. Seeing other people throughout the country respond with images of their hometowns was pretty awesome! The motivation, however, behind doing our particular video was to offset all the negative press that Flint has received lately over the Water Crisis. The entire music video had God’s divine anointing upon it!”

“Olympic boxer Claressa Shields flew from Los Angeles to Lexington for the Muhammad Ali funeral and than drove all night to Flint to be a part of it before she flew to Rio for the Summer Olympics.  Congressman Dan Kildee flew in from Washington to take part.  Other characters included Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, Mari Copeny (aka ‘Little Miss Flint’), and Riley McLincha, who is in the Guinness World Book of Records for what is termed as the ‘dribbling joggler.’ Riley holds the world record for running the fastest one mile during The Crim while dribbling three basketballs.”

“Also in the video is MaryAnn Tremaine, who, at 86-years of age, heads up the longest established Realty Company in Flint and Genesee County. Tom Z’s Original Flint’s Coney Island, and David Custer, news anchor at WNEM-TV (who just happens to look like Justin Timberlake).  We also included Flint’s local community and social events ‘On the Town’ magazine, which has served mid-Michigan for 42 years. Besides, they had the best cover to date which just happened to feature Mike and Stephanie in the Morning!”

“Most importantly, making this video was a labor of love and a gift for the people of Flint. We were blessed to have the skill set of our filmmakers, Stephen ‘Max;’ Vincent along with his son Alex (Mr. Red Productions) who worked tirelessly to film and produce this video gratus….we thought that type of selfless commitment deserved a little recognition. “
