Hi Sylvia, I guess the GKD team are trying to do the same thing you are sweetie: relaying pertinent info. As far as the premiere goes, if I remember correctly, one of the packages you can buy on Pledgemusic is a ticket to the documentary premiere that is stated to be on October 2. I had posted on the “Motor City” thread that I’d joined the mailing list and it makes sense to me that it’s the GKD mailing list, relating to events, since it’s on the “upcoming events” page. I’m thinking that if  the mailing list was for the Fox Theater, the link would have taken you to that site.    Thanks for keeping up the promotion Sylvia! :D Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Gotta Keep Dreamin has added a post plus a video of Michael in a coffee shop having a coffee.   Michael did post a photo to us, at the time, of the cup of coffee so rather nice to see the video and see him drinking it.   If you click on "MB's Great Lakes Coffee vanilla latte" it takes you straight to video and it should start to play automatically.  It shows Michael sitting in coffee shop and he picks up cup, speaks, takes a sip and then says "nice cup of coffee" and then video swings round and shows you a little of inside of Great Lakes Coffee Shop.

Michael Bolton likes his lattes sweet!! Great Lakes Coffee Detroit

Set of pics of Michael at a press conference at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel, Detroit where he has just finished a press conference and interviews given to CBS Radio and Local 4 News.  He also made announcement that General Motors has donated $100,000 to the Empowerment Plan in Detroit and has said that his hope for Gotta Keep Dreamin Twitter account will reach millions and keep going long into the future.  The event was organised by CKC Agency and they tweeted as press conference was taking place.

Some more pics from press conference setting yesterday and first comes from Stephen Clark and JoAnne Purtan from "The Now Detroit" on which Michael did a live interview from "across town":

This on comes courtesy of Kate and shows Michael at press conference:

Next one is of billboard Michael used at press conference:

and for Sylvie and Robin it shows there picture logo which is one of Detroit at twilight so buildings, bridge and boat on river are dark with the blue of the river and sky being the only illumination, if you like.  Above the picture is written, in an arch style, "From Executive Producer Michael Bolton" and then it shows the caption drawing of Detroit skyline with the words "Gotta Keep Dreamin" in the block with "Detroit's 21st Century Renaissance" written underneath.  Below that, just before pic logo, they have included the words: "Celebrating the history, heroes and Promise of an Iconic City Resurging".   Just to add that bottom section is totally covered by the pic logo they use and from the skyline you start to see the clouds become whiter and with the sun creating the soft sunset with the colour pink rising above and that colour covers the whole top section of the billboard, as it does, the actual pic they use on all their sites.  One other thing the lettering from "Gotta Keep Dreamin" is done with "Gotta" and "Dreamin" being in block capitals as though sign on a building with lights inside and the colour of the letters is turquoise (wonder who picked that ????) and the word "keep" is done in small joined handwriting in black.
