Mayor Bill de Blasio was recorded flapping his arms to a version of R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” while visiting a church in South Carolina on Sunday morning.

An 18-second video shows de Blasio standing on the left side of the chapel as a female singer belts out the refrain of the late 1990s hit by the since-disgraced R&B superstar.

The mayor moves his arms from front to back, then holds them out by his side and waves them up and down before clasping his hands.

“I wonder if the @NYCMayor realizes who sings this song,” tweeted NY1 reporter Courtney Gross, who also posted the clip. The video shows a sizeable number of churchgoers remaining seated, despite the encouragement of their pastor, whose gestures appear to urge the congregation to stand up and join in.
