You can see the purity of his soul when he sings this song.

Hi, MJ-Lover. I saw this for the first time over the Summer and wow. He loved Sammy and always showed appreciation to those that came before him. This song/performance really showcases that gorgeous voice. Mido, yes I think he was dramatic and I, like you, would love to have had Michael put some of his magic on me!

Michael is very versatile. He spoke many languages and the song 'you were there' was absolutely wonderful.

Wonderful :')

Can i ask you how many languages Mike spoke? seems like the list goes on forever...
This is in french, and he also sang it in spanish..

♥ Love Bump ♥

MJ Lover, I love this video...


I imagine MJ singing Break O Dawn & Heaven Can Wait & Lady of My Life & Butterflies... Rock With You & PYT to me... Oh my gosh my big wish growing up was that MJ would pull me up on stage and I could dance with MJ to Rock With You... then came the YANA girls... I was so jealous...

MJ could get all dramatic all over ME!!! I would've loved it!!!

I know, het lukte echt niet! (normaal wel) dus ik dacht dan maar even zo!

Hoezo ongeduldig? lol
Gewoon de link kopieëren en dan plakken in je antwoord. Werkt altijd!
