Did Joe Exotic sing his own songs?

Just finished "Tiger King" and know there's no way, but I would like to know the actual singer.

It turns out that there are two musicians behind the Joe Exotic songs, and neither of them are the man himself. According to Vanity Fair, Vince Johnson and vocalist Danny Clinton, members of the Clinton Johnson Band, are the ones who wrote and recorded all the big cat hits, including “I Saw A Tiger” and “Here Kitty Kitty.” The two men do appear in the credits of Tiger King, but Joe Exotic insisted to his staff and crew that it was him performing the songs. And he also didn’t bother telling the real musicians that he was taking the credit.

“I had no idea he was going to Milli Vanilli the songs,” Johnson told Vanity Fair. “It was a couple of months and two or three songs [into the collaboration] when I was on YouTube one night and just happened to look up Joe Exotic. And there he was, lip-syncing and acting like the ghost of Elvis [in these music videos]. I called him up, I was hot…And he bamboozled me about his reality show—that it was coming soon and he would make everything right as rain. I just wanted the proper credit.”
