"I don't categorize music. Music is music. They changed the word R&B to Rock 'n' Roll.It has always been, from Fats Domino to Little Richard to Chuck Berry. How can we discriminate? It's what it is, great music, you know."  ~ Michael Jackson

What a wonderful set of videos you put together. The Neverland one made me teary: the Kingdom Entertainment made me proud; and the R&R Hall of Fame Induction video made me fall in love with Michael all over again. To think that this all happened at approximately the same time he was finishing HIStory, making Ghosts, producing BOTDF and becoming a father is mind blowing. What an amazing man our Michael was!!
