DETROIT — Lee DeWyze will perform from his debut album “Live it Up” Friday at Campus Martius Park as part of the free 4th Fridays in the Park entertainment series. Presented by Real Detroit and WDVD 96.3 FM, the 2010 American Idol winner visits Detroit at the end of his first national headlining tour. Immediately before DeWyze performs, one lucky Detroiter will win the honor of opening for the American Idol after a panel of judges and audience members declare the first Campus Martius Park Idol winner. The finals start at 8:30 PM and DeWyze takes the stage at 9:15 PM.

New to 4th Fridays this year is comedy during Happy Hour (4:30-7 PM), presented by Real Detroit and Marketing Associates. Joey’s Comedy Club presents “Stand Up in Detroit,” hosted by Garri Madera and featuring Andrew O’Neal, Jeff Scheen, Dora Badger, Jeff Conolly and Sam White. The comedy follows "Detroit Trivia" by Inside Detroit (4:30 PM) and the featured music act, The Saints of Soul, “the hardest-hittin’, funk-bringin’, horn-driven soul band around.”

Fourth Fridays in the Park events continue to build thereafter with the Ralphe Armstrong Show: His music, his city, his friends—a live stream production celebrating the music and influences Detroit brings to the world featuring musical performances by Ralphe and his band, ID (International Detroiters), special guest artists and interviews. The evening wraps up at midnight after the film "This is It" (2009), a testament to one of America's greatest talents, Michael Jackson.

“With its superb landscape, spectacular fountain and the surroundings of the downtown Detroit skyline, Campus Martius Park is a truly unique entertainment venue,” said Howard Hertz, President of the Detroit Music Awards (DMA). “This year’s Summer in the Park entertainment series is peppered with incredible variety that will appeal to even the most fickle music fan.”

Additional musical acts that will perform at the Park this summer are ensembles from the Detroit Jazz Festival Summer Institute with jazz master drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts (Aug. 26). The YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit presents Healthy Moves, with Tai Chi 5:30-6:30 PM on Tuesdays, June 14-Aug. 23 and Yoga 9-10 AM on Saturdays, June 18- Aug. 27.
