Michael says that early in his career, he had to convince record executives to allow him to record songs he wrote: “It’s kind of difficult to get people to believe in you. You have to tell them: ‘I wanna do it for once.’ Some people believe in you, and some don’t. And finally,they give you the chance, and then they see what you can do,and they let you do it.”
