Eternal Flame: The Bob Kelly Music Legacy
Eternal Flame, written by Angie Klink, directed by Jack Klink and narrated by actor Peter Coyote, documents how Tom Kelly, member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, carried his father, Bob Kelly’s musical torch to great heights and paid it forward to inspire generations to come.
Tom is one of the most successful songwriters of the past 25 years. Along with lyricist Billy Steinberg, he wrote five consecutive Billboard #1 hits from 1985 to 1989: Madonna’s "Like A Virgin," Cindy Lauper’s "True Colors," Heart’s "Alone," Whitney Huston’s "So Emotional" and The Bangles’ "Eternal Flame."
Today, the Bob Kelly Performing Arts Center at West Lafayette High School in West Lafayette, Indiana, stands as a testament to the Kellys’ burning musical passion and serves to spark the joy of music in young people.
Rise Above the Mark

She wrote a narrative that weaves together the struggles experienced by teachers and students with the possible remedies to those difficulties offered by several experts in the field. Klink’s compelling and engaging script is brought to life by narrator, actor Peter Coyote.

William Digby was the founder of Lafayette, Indiana, and he named the city after the Marquis de Lafayette in 1825. At that time, Marquis was touring the United States, being honored by Americans as a hero during the American Revolution many decades before. In this video spoof to promote downtown, Will and Marq make their debut by interrupting Mayor Tony Roswarski at a press conference, where the mayor is announcing that “Downtown is Open for Business” during the Main Street Revitalization project, called “Streetscape.” The humorous script reflects the crusty character of Digby and the refined persona of the Marquis.
