    Laure Quinlivan: reporter, councilwoman, and now songwriter? The Cincinnati councilwoman is writing a song for the city that will be a PSA for the World Choir Games this summer. The song may also be played in other cities to promote tourism.

    The song is called, “Cincinnati’s Singing”. Quinlivan took the melody of “Proud Mary” and wrote her lyrics to it.

    If you were at Findlay Market this weekend, you probably saw her shooting the music video. She has recruited former boy band member, Nick Lachey, and American Idol reject, Eben Franckewitz, to sing the song. Here are the lyrics,

    It’s a good life in the city

    Cincinnati’s singing every night and day

    The Pops and the opera,

    Rock n roll and gospel

    Funk & Blues & Schools with performing arts

    This city’s really humming

    And the World Choir Games are coming (ALTERNATE LINE -and we hope to see you coming)

    Cincinnati is rolling, (rollin) rockin’, (rockin’) Cincinnati’s singing (Cincinniati’s singing)

    Cincinnati is rolling (rollin) rockin’, (rockin’) Cincinnati’s singing (Cincinnati’s singing)

    If you come down to the river,

    You’re gonna love our parks and the buildings too

    Cincinnati’s growing,

    Everything is glowing

    People in the city are happy to give

    This city’s really humming

    And the World Choir games are coming (ALTERNATE LINE -and we hope to see you coming)

    Cincinnati is moving, (moving) grooving, (grooving) Cincinnati’s singing (Cincinnati’s singing)

    Cincinnati is jumping, (jumping) swinging, (swinging) Cincinnati’s singing (Cincinnati’s singing)

    Cincinnati is rolling, (rolling) rocking, (rocking) Cincinnati’s singing (Cincinnati’s singing)

    Cincinnati is rolling, (rolling) rocking, (rocking) Cincinnati’s singing

    Try to sing Quinlivan’s new song, while singing to the beat of “Proud Mary”.
