Yesterday (as reported with video HERE) I was fortunate enough to attend the wonderful Coco Day in L.A. dedication ceremony and musical performance in the front plaza of Los Angeles City Hall, but what I didn’t mention is that there was an additional presentation and performance inside the L.A. City Council chamber immediately afterward– during which no outside media photography was allowed.
Fortunately, today we were sent officially-sanctioned video and photos of the City Council presentation, complete with “Coco” star Anthony Gonzalez making his way down the center aisle performing the Oscar-nominated song “Remember Me” while accompanied by the supremely talented Mariachi Divas.
After the song, Los Angeles City Councilmember Gilbert Cedillo gave an impassioned speech about why he feels “Coco” is so culturally important, and then brought up Pixar‘s Lee Unkrich and Darla K. Anderson, director and producer of the movie respectively, to receive the Coco Day in L.A. honors and certificates. Everyone involved seemed thrilled by and appreciative of the experience.
“Coco” is currently available on Digital HD, Movies Anywhere, Blu-ray, and DVD.
