For a shoot that I thought was going to be relatively conservative as it was happening at a hospital it was anything but that at Henry Ford Health Care Systems, located at one of Detroit's oldest and most respected hospitals, Henry Ford. Not only was the weather perfect but so were these hospital care workers' voices and spirit. Fully rehearsed and choreographed, this was absolutely one of my favorite shoots. It was also our first Soul Train line, which led to that being a tradition at many of the other shoots. With camera people high up on the roof of the hospital we filmed on the gorgeous lawn and heliport below. NBC News also filmed us, which was part of a news story that evening as well as an upcoming half an hour special on "The D" that will air in a few months.
