DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit now has its own classy, brassy, big band-like song. Local restaurateur and entertainer Tony Vitale has written a loving ode to the tenacity of his hometown, and he calls it “That’s Detroit”:

“We’ve got something special, we’ve got something that no one else in the country has and we can use that and harness it to be the great power again, and I guess I hope this song is a call to action,” Vitale said.

Vitale runs the Mesquite Creek Grill in Clarkson and performs there on weekends. He says his Sinatra-esque tune is the Motor City’s answer to “New York New York”

“There’s so much happening and so much growing sometimes you’ve got to look for it a little bit, but there is a lot starting to happen and I think we are heading in the right direction. I think we just need to push harder,” said Vitale.

Vitale, who was a dancer and backup singer in Reba McIntyre’s nationally touring show, wants the world to know Detroit is a vibrant city with so much to see and do, and the most resilient people on the planet.

The video, which features dozens of location shots around town, is on YouTube.
