Choir students at Detroit's Academy of Arts and Sciences have penned their own version of Jay-Z & Alicia Keys hit 'Empire State of Mind.'
The result is 'Detroit State of Mind,' an inspiring and inside look of the student's perspective on their city.
Choir director Angela Kee says she asked the students to change the lyrics of the original song as an assignment and they returned the next day with their own version.
The DAAS members joined FOX 2 News Morning on Wednesday to perform their own version. Click the video player above to watch. Plus, check out their music video posted from YouTube.
