Michael’s Final Curtain Call – ("Smile" for the King)

leave a comment »

Today, the world saw The Legendary Michael Jackson’s funeral and memorial service on television. According to the BBC, a record number of 2.5 billion watched. Words cannot express how I felt seeing his shiny gold casket on stage while phenomenal artist like Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Queen Latifah, Mariah Cary and others paid beautiful tribute to Michael Jackson. As an artist, humanitarian and philanthropist, he’s done so much. It’s how I feel artist who are blessed with his influence and money should really act and give back. Not only did he achieved the American Dream, but the Global Dream! How can we ever forget you Michael? It’s impossible to and as Stevie Wonder said at the service today, “As much as we need you here Michael, God must need you far more.”

You’re gone too soon, but Lord knows you are truly in a better place.

My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to The Jackson family and his three children. With God’s strength, you will get through.

In closing, I’d like to post a beautiful rendition of the song “Smile” by Janelle Monae. If you’ve been to this blog or my flickr before, then you are well aware of my support and love for this girl’s art. However, if you haven’t heard it, please take a listen today. Originally recorded by Charlie Chaplin, then Michael himself, it was his favorite song. Jermaine, Michael’s brother, also sang it at the Memorial Service today.

Thank you Janelle.

And Michael, you will forever be in our hearts.
