Happy videos. Everyone’s doing them. Car dealerships. Colleges. Now Camden.
On Thursday morning, outside an abandoned building on Federal Street, Nohemi Soria, of the Camden Children’s Garden, danced in a bright peach shirt, flower crown in her hair, toward a camera-man panning with her as she strutted to Pharrell’s hit song.
Some cars slowed, passersby stopped. It’s not every day a mini-film crew descends on the city.
The clip will be one of many upbeat scenes featuring Camden and the nonprofit organizations that serve it, in a music video released April 18 on the website goodnessproject.org. You’ll see chefs dancing in the cafeteria at Cathedral Kitchen, Cramer Hill Little Leaguers breaking it down on the field and ballerinas from Settlement Music School, among others.
