Camden's 'Goodness Project' Shines A Light On The City

Posted: Updated:
CAMDEN, N.J. -

Lights, cameras, and a real director.

They're filming a music video in Camden on their "Goodness Project."

There is a lot to sing and dance about in Camden and they want everybody to know about the good hard working folks that are making people happy.

The kids were inspired by Pharrel's hit song "Happy."

The kids are on point. Smiling, shaking, and moving and grooving. They are showing off the goodness the volunteers and Camden County's pride has brought to them.

Director of Settlement Music Camden, Valerie Clayton, explains, "they're filming all over Camden, with real crews from Drexel and a real big time Emmy nominated movie director, Steve Acito.

Acito says, "we are working for free and  the crew is working for free."

11th grader Amadi Merill says good people have changed her life.

Merill explains, "as a kid I was given a violin. If this wasn't here I wouldn't really been able to do it. They give a lot of scholarships to kids that can't afford music lessons."

"Our goal is for it to go viral. We are going to release it on Good Friday in the morning with the help of fox. We just hope everyone spreads the words about the goodness in Camden and all the great charities you can get attached to and do more to help," says Ronald McDonald Representative, Lauren White.

    Insurance policies have rules governing what's covered and what's not. Generally, they make sense. The rules are designed to prevent unreasonable costs from being passed along to the insurer, and by extension to other insurance customers. But listen to Sheree Kober's story.
