I’m joining the throngs of performers who have talked for seven days about Micheal’s influence on their careers. I’ll admit it, I did a few spins and a moonwalk or two when no one was looking, but, it has always been Michael’s connection to the world through his music that moves me most, followed by his kick-ass performances. There’s no doubt that Michael clearly understood the meaning of entertainment. In this department, I believe he was untouchable.
Now you know I have a Michael Jackson story……A while back a mutual friend played Ghetto Love Song, for him, and his immediate response was “great voice ...great song....who is this?” While I never got the chance to write with him, I’m holding on to the fact that the best on the planet said I had a great voice and I wrote a great song.
My MJ Soundtrack……….On the performance side, singing She’s Out Of My Life got me into a major talent show back in the day. On the listening and looking side, it’s a triple play with Thriller as favorite song, video and album. Coming in close for favorite song is Man In The Mirror, and there's a host of others too numerous to mention. It’s been a blessing to experience his genius, and I hope he’s found his peace.
