(Nashville, March 23, 2011) In May, 2010, Nashville and the state of Tennessee were devastated by historic flooding that killed many people and caused over $1 billion in damage. Two weeks later, over 40 Nashville artists and musicians, including Michelle, joined together with a production/ engineering team and music video director, Julian Chojnacki, to record the benefit song City of Dreams: Artists for Tennessee Flood Relief, written by Victoria Banks. All participants and facilities donated their time and services. All proceeds from both the Song and the Music Video City Of Dreams: Artists for Tennessee Flood Relief have been, and continue to be, donated to the American Red Cross to assist the people of Tennessee.
Recently Director Chojnacki was notified that City Of Dreams: Artists for Tennessee Flood Relief has been selected for the 2011 Nashville Film Festival, held April 14-21, to compete in the Tennessee Shorts category. The official letter of acceptance from the Festival stated,”Your film was selected from more than 2,400 entries because of its quality and because we felt it best suited our mission and our local audience.”
