I traveled to Nashville to attend the benefit, which was a magical celebration of Michael's life and musical legacy. The renowned songwriters each performed songs they had written and MJ recorded. They also shared personal stories of their work and friendships with Michael. The room was filled with Michael's family, friends, colleagues and many fans. I know he would have been honored and proud that so many people came out to raise money for such worthy organizations, as his friend Gene Cotton also described Michael's many philanthropic contributions over the years. Although 3rd & Lindsley is a good sized club, the setting felt intimate and personal, as I can honestly say the feeling of love in the room was palpable. It was sincerely one of the most wonderful evenings I have ever experienced and I offer my profound gratitude to his nephew Gary and the other organizers for such a beautiful and fitting tribute to Michael.
