Michael's music is part of the soundtrack of my life. Innumerable hours spent listening to his amazing voice, great songs and the emotions that it brought to the surface. On a plane once I had my earphones on while listening to "Now and Then" when a young passenger from across the aisle came over and asked what I was obviously enjoying so much. I told her and needless to say she didn't know Michael but loved how much I was enjoying it.
To Michael's family I offer my condolences and prayers. Please know that he gave many great joy, and few get to do that in life. This Friday night when I play my weekly gig, I will do the two MJ songs that I perform regularly, knowing that there was only one MJ and my efforts will hopefully be a reminder to some of his greatness.
Rest In Peace......
