WATCH: Mayor Elect Jim Kenney Sings “The Animal Song” at Philly Zoo Gala
Philly mayors like to sing (see here, for instance), and Mayor Elect Jim Kenney is no exception. Last night, he attended the Philadelphia Zoo’s annual Global Conservation Gala, where he treated the audience to a talk/sing rendition of “The Animal Song.” The tune appeared in zoo commercials around the country in the early 1960s promoting a Zoo Key program for kids.
During his speech, Kenney shared a photo of himself as a kid at the Zoo, telling the audience that he remembers taking trips there with his dad and brother. Check out the clip of him singing above, and the Philly Zoo TV spot below.
