PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WHEC) — Anyone watching Tuesday's episode of "This Is Us" will hear an original song from a local musician.

Mikey James is a Greece Arcadia grad from Pittsford, and his son "We Don't Stop 'Til the Kids 'R' Dancin'" will be featured in the episode. 


James wrote it back in 2007, with his wife Tara and sister-in-law Kristina singing backup on the song. 

News10NBC asked James what he hopes the song inspires in those who hear it.

"I hope people want to dance to rock and roll again, feel those kind of rhythms and make them want to dance," he said. "And that was the whole idea of that record: Let's rock and roll again. Not in a mischievous, rebellious, nihilistic way either, [but] like the whole initial collaborative 'let's boogie'."

"This Is Us" can be seen every week on News10NBC at 9 p.m., followed by "New Amsterdam" and then News10NBC at 11.
