"I'm gonna keep my head up high/Keep on reaching high /Never gonna quit /Just keep getting stronger."

So sang Elmo today at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City.

Cute and inspiring? Sure. A message sent by this iconic Sesame Street character and his pals in response to the disturbing scandal surrounding former voice actor Kevin Clash? One would have to imagine so.

In a word? WOW.

She may not have the fan base of Justin Bieber. Or the break-up anthems of Taylor Swift. Or the smoke, bells and whistles of performers such as Ke$ha or Nicki Minaj.
