Elmo

SINGS at Thanksgiving Parade

'Nothing's Gonna Bring Us Down'

11/22/2012 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Elmo
is alive and well on Thanksgiving -- singing his heart out during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade today in NYC ... and the song may or may not be a musical response to the child abuse scandal.

Elmo -- along with the rest of the "Sesame Street" cast -- sang "What I Am," a song with lyrics that take on new meaning in the wake of the scandal involving Kevin Clash, Elmo's former voice actor who's been accused of sexually abusing 2 underage boys.

Among the lyrics -- "I'm gonna keep my head up high / keep on reaching high / Never gonna quit / Just keep getting stronger."

And if that weren't appropriate enough, Elmo chimes in with his solo -- "Nothing's gonna bring us down."

Check out the clip.

I saw the kids that were "underage". Both of them were trolling on an 18 and over adult line and probably lied to MANY guys about their age. They just happen to land one that was rich and NOW they have emotional issues.

And you people claiming this guy NOTORIOUSLY went after underage boys are completely adding your own history to this story. This guy is openly gay and looked for guys on an ADULT phone line. Just because you have kids calling that phone line does not make him guilty of looking for them. Where are the PARENTS of these underage boys at? Were they even monitoring what their kids were doing?? Absolutely not!!!
The judge should throw this case out of court when this it is mentioned that they should never had been on an "18 and over" phone sex line in the first place. Seems like they were looking for someone to trap.

People have GOT to separate Elmo from his 'voice'! Elmo is a beloved children's character who has done NOTHING wrong!! Don't punish him because of the mistakes of Clash!
