Title: Ghosts (Behind the Scenes)
Summary: The video was leaked online a week and a half ago on youtube and quickly became an Internet sensation among the MJ online fan community. Fans made gifs on tumblr of the footage as well as posting the video on several blogs, facebook and twitter accounts. The footage shows Michael dancing to the music as he prepares for a scene in the Ghosts short film when he transforms into a Skeleton and performs. Michael looked gorgeous, healthy and vibrant. He was doing his usual dance moves and those amazing spins that he would do so effortlessly. He also had a good laugh with the late Stan Winston and his megawatt smile warms your heart. Seeing Michael in his element dancing to the music will remind us all how much we miss him and his presence.
Title: Michael Dancing with the Children
Summary: I was on youtube a few months ago when I watched this video of highlights from the Bad Tour concert in Los Angeles. In the video, Michael performs his classic hits but at 5:50 up until the end of the footage, Michael performs with the children. To me, this was the best part of the footage. I even noticed that one of Michael's nephews, Jermaine Jr., was also on stage with him dancing. This was the type of man Michael was: he always included children in his performances because he wanted to put the spotlight on them. This always warmed my heart and hope it does for you as well.
Title: Michael Visits Children at an Orphanage.
Summary: This was a powerful and moving video of Michael going to an orphanage in Moscow, Russia in 1992. He did this while he was on tour for his classic Dangerous album. As I am watching this, I am elated because he is a man who did not have to visit these children and could have used his time to something else. However, Michael was always on a mission to do something that will help others. Those children who lived in the Orphanage probably never had a major celebrity come into their place just to visit them. It shows you the type of person Michael was and why this world lost a true hero. This footage should remind people the kind of man Michael was and that these entertainers/performers of today really cannot be the type of person that Michael was. If they and all of us do not take time out of their day to go and visit the lost and forgotten, then what is the point of us as a people? Michael was truly one of a kind.
Title: Going Back to Indiana
Summary: Michael went back to his hometown of Gary, Indiana in 2003 because he had to settle some sort of legal issue. While he was there, he decided to visit his childhood home, the high school that his older siblings went to, the baseball park where he was honored, received the key to the city and visited a KFC food stop. This amazing footage was recorded at that time and was leaked on youtube in 2010. The footage shows Michael in a rare form: normal. I always knew that Michael was normal and was very different than what he showed to the public. When watching the footage, you get to see Michael be like everyone else and having a good time with his family (two of his cousins, Levon and Elijah Jackson), a fan that joined them and meeting his loyal fans. The footage was funny, sweet and made me miss Michael even more.
