Allee Willis is a "Grammy, Emmy, Tony, Webby award-winning and nominated songwriter, artist, director, producer, multi-mediaist, collector and party-thrower." (Dang, she's only one short of an EGOT). You might not know her, but you know her work: She wrote the theme song forĀ Friends. More recently, she wrote a song called "The D," a salute to the city of Detroit and its people.

Her mission, she explains, is not to reconstruct the city, but rather to reimagine it, alongside her fellow Detroiters.

Here's a sneak peek at the production behind the scenes:
