Went with Dixie and Phil today to see Michael Jackson's "This is it!." I was totally blown away. I've always been a fan of Michael's awe inspiring talent, but this movie really demonstrates all of his positive traits. The consumate professional, a man who can get 150% out of all the also talented musicians, dancers and creative people in his world without raising his voice hardly above a whisper (check it out Christian Bale) . His natural rhythm and a beautiful voice that matches any instrument gave me the chills, his lyrics are so moving. It occured to me throughout the film that he is ageless. He could be 40, 30 or even 20 the way he moves, so hard to believe he was 50. The way he achieves perfection in all aspects of the concert was inspiring. And he does it all without breaking a sweat. No doubt if he had lived to complete the tour, he would be back on top again as one, if not THE greatest entertainer. I know I'm blathering, but I felt it was that good. Hope you check it out. I'd like to hear what you thought.
Bless you Michael, and bless your children. You will live forever in your art and contribution to music and dance.
