Smack dab in the middle of Eminem�s new video for the hit song "Mockingbird" is an unforgettable face that defines Detroit television news.
In the video for the song, Bill Bonds will be a part of Eminem�s intimate footage, which fans will see for the first time. The video includes home movies with his daughter, niece, and ex-wife.
"He said to his crew and a great crew, all people about your age, very talented men and women, that I was part of his growing up, because your mom (7 anchor Diana Lewis) and I were on television together, and he wanted me to be part of his story," Bonds said Friday.
"They called and said that Eminem is doing something special. This is kind of the story of his life: his ups, his downs, his victories, his defeats, his version of the America in which he grew up."
It�s an America that Bill says is much different from his younger days, and Eminem is just the mockingbird to sing about it.
"I was really very thrilled and very complimented because this is a very gifted kid," Bonds said. "This kid is a one-man Motown."
