VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - An upcoming ad campaign for Virginia Beach will feature a new song by hometown star Pharrell Williams. A city official tells the Virginian-Pilot that Williams contacted the city last year asking how he could help after the mass shooting at a municipal building in May. That led to a a multi-year plan involving the singer in tourism and economic development initiatives. As part of that, the singer will narrate two 60-second commercials with his soon-to-be-released song, “Virginia."
