Crying over MJ

Some people might think I’m ridicilous but this is just a quick shot of how I came through the memorial evening of Michael Jackson… together with my niece, the Kleenexbox was too small, and even at the end my son, Bart, was sobbing on the couch, realizing one of his big idols had left this world. Together we were singing « Man in the Mirror », and very much into all the songs and beautiful words that have been said.

crying over MJ

Stevie Wonder’s performence was, in my eyes, the most beautiful one ; « I never Dreamed you would leave in summer », take a look here :

I won’t go into the argument about « who’s bad »… I loved Michael Jackson, his life, his carreer, his music, the lyrics he could write, about the human nature, the world… it all meant a lot to me, I am deeply touched by his death.

You have always been in my life, your music helped me, comforted me, brought me joy, tears and hapiness. My first record ever, bought with my own money, was « Ben »… and all your music lingers on, I will never go anywhere without you! Goodbye Michael, Thank you!
