If a poll were held to declare an official anthem for the city of Toronto, what song would get your vote? Well, whatever your answer, prepare to change your mind, as Torontoist submits this video of local karaoke hero Angelo Tony Luongo‘s “I Love You My Beautiful Toronto.”
In this lovingly rendered tribute, Angelo somehow manages to capture the quintessential Toronto experience. He recalls growing up in a multicultural landscape while hanging out with anthropomorphic cows and vampire dudes. Iconic appearances are made by the CN Tower, the Fashion District, and the Island…and did you see that mic toss?
Angelo is teaching the rest of the world what Torontonians already know: that ours is a city that gives liberty to be free, and the ability to see.
