In the summer of 2013, an array of musicians, singers and dancers joined together to create a music video entitled Where There Is Love. The video was filmed and recorded in Dayton and has been viewed by hundreds of thousands worldwide.
Yesterday, that journey continued with the premiere of Where the Rivers Meet,a second music video with a new, multicultural cast of musicians and dancers.
These projects enrich “Welcome Dayton: Immigrant-Friendly City,” a nationally-recognized initiative that seeks to bridge communication barriers and cultural differences. The lyrical message of Where the Rivers Meet is a powerful illustration of that vision, as well as the goal of connecting the world through music. Dayton sits at the convergence of rivers—a perfect metaphor for the power and strength of the people of Dayton coming together from truly everywhere in the world.
This video shows the beauty of our city and its most valuable asset, the diversity of our community. Please watch the video and share it with your friends. I know that after you watch it, you will again be reminded why we are proud to call Dayton home.
