Minneapolis Christmas Concerts
MJ used to play a concert on December 26th in Minneapolis for many years. I would go with my family and loved those shows!! Michael so inspired me with his music, his lyrics and his guitar. I loved the simplicity and the intimacy of his performances. A man, a stool and a guitar. I wanted to do that!! I am a songwriter as well and had the opportunity to meet Michael after a performance. He was kind and compassionate and actually took the cassette I handed him! I had nearly everything he recorded on cassette and listened to him constantly on the subway when I moved to NYC. His voice always felt familiar to me and made me happy! I am saddened by his passing and am moved to get those recordings out and listen to Michael with new ears. You made a huge difference in my life, Michael, thank you!
