(ABC 6 NEWS) -- They call themselves proud parents. A Rochester couple has a Hollywood connection to the new Godzilla movie that is now open.

Lois and Leland Saxton's son Dann lives in Los Angeles and works in the entertainment industry. Dann co-wrote and sings a song called "See the Way" that's featured in Godzilla.

Dann's lived in California for 15 years and his mom says she's thrilled to be able to watch the movie and her son's song.

"To see what he's been working for all his life finally come to being. I think all parents are that way. They like to see their kids succeed in what they're doing. So yes, it's great," says Lois Saxton.

Dann's songwriting team "LikeWize" is working on a number of other film and TV projects. In Godzilla, Dann's song is playing on the radio during a scene at the main character's apartment in Japan.
