Music video asks people to 'Crim for Flint'

FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A new music video asking people to "Crim for Flint" has people signing up to take part in a huge Mid-Michigan summer event.

She's only in the fifth grade but Dee Dee Kelley stars in the video "I Crim for Flint.” 

Kelley is a runner and she should be, her mother was a speedster on the track. 

Kelley was excited when she heard she was selected to star in the video.

"I did a Girl’s on the Run activity at school and they called me into the office and I was like, ‘Am I in trouble?’ and they was like ‘No, we'd like you to be in our Crim video’ and I was like, ‘What?’" Kelley said. 

The performer who makes the video "sing" is proud to be a part of the project.

"I love the video, honestly when we initially started writing the song and preparing the music it felt very patriotic, it felt necessary and it has purpose. When I get behind something it has to have meaning and purpose,” said Mama Sol, a musical artist.

The folks over at Crim say the video has become a hit.

“So we came up with this idea for the video based on our campaign called I Crim for Flint. The idea is we want people to think of how they can help Flint, how can they be healthy, embrace one another as we go through this water crisis as we go through everyday life challenges,” said Theresa Roach with Crim Fitness Foundation.
