Michael Jackson – The Hype is True
July 19, 2010 § 1 Comment
I was never a fan of Michael Jackson until I saw the recently released documentary “This Is It”. The documentary chronicles Michael’s preparations for what he said was his final show performances in London. It is amazing to be able to witness the extraordinary creativity flowing from his very being. The mental agility he possesses is obvious as he is able to seemingly observe every aspect of not only his performance, but that of the dancers, musicians, and even the physical stage.
Michael is able to mold all aspects of the experience through what I can only describe as Direction Through Understanding and Love. In other words, he is able to accomplish what he has set forth in his mind as perfection through the use of Understanding and Love towards the people that work with him. The people that work with him in this documentary clearly exude a positive energy that I can only assume is an extension of Michael’s energy and devotion to them. There is an air of genuine sincerity in everything he does and it is easy to believe he is not only doing what he loves, but he wants us to know he loves doing it for his fans.
I encourage everyone, fans and non-fans alike, to watch this documentary to see and understand that the “Hype” Michael Jackson receives is entirely deserved and most definitely true.
It is important to note that Michael Jackson was also a brilliant songwriter something I think has been largely overlooked. This are a few my favorite songs written by MJ and links to their respective music videos.
