Many Midwestern cities are flush with talented musicians who are unknown to most of the city. This project showcased that talent while simultaneously bringing awareness to community involvement, the arts, and what young people are able to do for the city when they collaborate and work together. This project has sparked a newly renewed sense of civic pride within the young population of Fort Wayne, IN that has attracted the attention of national economic development publications and blogs. This has sparked a chain of events pertaining to economic development in Northeast Indiana such as The My City Summit and the My City Pin. Now, some of the artists on the song are creating the next chapter and taking the movement worldwide. The movement has been appropriately coined the #MYCITY Movement.

The MYCITY Movement is now an on-going music based project aimed at telling the stories of various cities around the world through collaboration and melody. Stay tuned for the next city!
