“You’ll Be In My Heart” – Tarzan

Music and Lyrics: Phil Collins

When a gorilla named Kala finds an orphaned human child, she decides to raise him as her own and sings him this angelic lullaby in this stage musical of the Disney animated film.  The song is in tribute to Dian Fossey, an anthropologist who kept many gorillas in her heart as she devoted her life to the preservation of the species.  Her story is dramatized in the motion picture Gorillas In the Mist, released on this day in 1988.
