KID ROCK Celebrates 40th B-Day In Detroit In Star-Studded Event

5_People_Kid_Rock.sff.jpg

The 'Kid Rock Party' apparently was a banger as about 60,000 fans packed the house at FORD FIELD anticipating the biggest house party of 2011. Classic Detroit favorites and Detroit-lovers also packed the house: the legendary Anita Baker, "Run's House" and Run DMC's Joseph "Rev. Run" Simmons, Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride, Uncle Kracker, and more surprises laid out for the night.


Kid Rock also sang a bunch of his hit songs with his special guests, singing songs like "Rock Box" and "Born This Way." Anita Baker made the night enchanted with a SOUL-ified version of "Star Spangled Banner." Also included in the fun-filled night were video tributes from Late-Night-TV talking heads Jay Leno, Conan O' Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart, and even the animated Beavis & Butthead. 

The night ended on a great note. Even though it was Kid Rock's birthday, you would thimk it would be all about him. NOPE. Rock donated $25,000 each to four Detroit organizations that serve the community (man, that just touches my heart!) and in turn, Detroit City Council president Charles Pugh presented Rock with the 'Spirit of Detroit' award and Chevrolet presented him with a thugged-out *LoL* --ahem-- customized 2011 Camaro.

I'm sure that's a 40th BIRTHDAY TO REMEMBER...
