Sing Along With Mitch - The Mayoral Edition


Mayor Mitch has been known to pull a soulful turn of phrase. Aided by the full panache of his ensemble, The Hype Machine, he's even been known to get an audience up and clapping. But little could possibly prepare even the most ardent City Hall groupies for the next trick up our man's already-rolled-up sleeves.

And, he'll be "singing," Mayoral Press Secretary Ryan Berni confirmed in a one-word answer tonight.
