Now that the video has been shot, the question is: "When do we get to see it?”
A day after some 1,300 registered participants danced and sang through the streets of Aliso Viejo for the first-ever Lip Dub, city officials announced Monday that the video will premiere on Saturday, Oct. 13 in conjunction with Mayor Donald Garcia's State of the City address, which will be part of the city's annual Founder's Day Fair at the Aliso Viejo Ranch.
The Lip Dub was produced by PeopleStar FilmWorks, led by Aliso Viejo business owners Chip and Kim McAllister, and choreographed by Milo Levell. Along with the many organizations, businesses and groups representing the Aliso Viejo community was Olympic gold medalist Kyla Ross, who came dancing out of city hall with two bouquets of flowers to the music of “Celebration” by Kool& the Gang, The second half of the video featured the song “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO.
Mayor Garcia, who appeared at the beginning of the video in Council Chambers and at the end in front of the Grand Park Amphitheater, got into the groove of things by dancing and singing with the crowd.
“I cannot thank each and every participant enough for taking the time to make history in Aliso Viejo," said Mayor Garcia. “Everyone helped to make my idea for this phenomenal Lip Dub a reality, and the civic pride in this community was never more evident. I am grateful and honored to be a resident of this great city.”
