In arranging this cover, the last thing I wanted to do was try to replicate what Michael Jackson did because no one can. I thought to myself, “how will I arrange this if I came up with this melody?” So the vocal chants, island rhythms, piano, cello, and violin (classical influences) is what I listened to growing up in West African
Michael Jackson is the greatest artist that ever lived. He left us with timeless classics like “Beat It” “Dirty Diana” “Bad” “Smooth Criminal” “Billie Jean” and many more. His music has influenced artists like Chris Brown, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber, Usher, Janet Jackson, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and countless other artists. He also brought u the moonwalk. Michael Jackson videos where mini movies and drew us in.
Too bad we never saw his comeback in hi “This Is It” concert, instead we were doing a michael jackson tribute and a Michael jackson funeral.

Michael lives on
