Controversy Over The New Michael Jackson Album

There is so much controversy over the new  MICHAEL Album, Just before the Hold My Hand single was to be released some of the Jackson's came forward and stated they do not believe the songs the Casio family presented for the album was Michael singing and that caused quite a stir in the MJ fan community. Teddy Riley the producer of the Casio tracks stated that he doesn’t consider that the Jackson's are lying about the songs but that they just don’t know because they were not close or in studio with him in during his latter years.

We know that is true. They were not very close for many years. They including Michael were all busy with life, traveling tending to their own careers or it was a personal choice.. but they barely seen each other let alone live together to see and hear what Michael was creating in the studio. I’m not saying Michael never spent some time with them on different occasions but they were not as close as some Jackson's would like us to believe. I’m not implying they didn’t love each other very much. We don’t know all the ins and outs of their personal relationships with each other except that he kept in close contacts with his mother Katherine.

The Casio family were quite close to Michael over the years and were referred to as his second family by Michael. His family of Love. They have been very loyal to Michael over the years and there home was a safe haven for him and his children. They never exploited their relationship with him. After his Trial in 2005 Michael invited them to Bahrain to spend Christmas with him and his children. Michael even lived with them for 4 months in 2007. The Casio family seems very credible to me based on their history with Michael. I cant even fathom they would create fakes songs to try and profit off them and defile Michaels musical legacy.

I really don’t like all the attacks against the Jackson's by some fans for questioning these 3 trackss in the first place. We all have to admit they do sound very different. But I do believe Teddy Riley when he states they were over processed vox, melodyne heavy (which by the way could distort the vibrato) by the Casios and their wasn’t much he could do about it.. But Teddy does believe the voice is Michael and he also believes in the songs and that Michael wanted them to live. He wants Michael to shine in and live for the world again on The MICHAEL Album.

Michael Jackson - Hold My Hand Video ft. Akon

Acclaimed film director Mark Pellington shot “Hold My Hand” in California with a diverse array of real Michael Jackson fans as its cast. In the video, Pellington tells the story of the song through a collage of images of both Michael and Akon as well as people representing Michael’s legacy, shining a light on the aura left behind by King of Pop.

As he describes, “The video is a tribute to all that Michael stands for -- life, in all its, and its power.... A video of memory, healing and joy.”

Pellington’s clip accomplishes exactly what fans love about Michael Jackson– simple but powerful messages such as that in the song’s opening line

This life don’t last forever.”
