2015 Christmas Countdown: Gayla Peevey Wants a Hippopotamus
Gayla certainly looks peevish as she preens and prances with lots of pizzazz, singing "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas."
She actually had another hit single in 1970 with "Robot Man," recording under the name Jamie Horton. The song was covered by Connie Francis. Her recording career was over by 1962.
But Gayla settled down, got married, became an English teacher and adjusted nicely to normal life it would seem.
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, from Buddy Beaverhausen!
