Heal the World

Heal The World became one of Michael Jackson's most memorial philanthropic songs

 "Heal The World" reached a lofty #2 on the U.K. Charts. Becoming one of Michael Jackson's most humanitarian hits along with "We Are The World", "Man In The Mirror", "History", and eventually "Cry".

 Time alone spent on his Neverland sycamore tree(a.k.a. The Giving Tree) is where it all began. On one good evening, way up on a sycamore branch was Mr. Jackson deep in thought. Digging deep for inspiration. Suddenly a tune was stuck in his head. That night, Jackson composed all the lyrics to the song. Quickly he rushed for his tape recorder and beatboxed the whole song in acappella. To this day, Michael views this song as one of his most cherished accomplishments.

 Just two years late Michael established(out of his own money) "Heal The World Foundation". An organization which not only helps the less fortunate but equips them to help others in like manner. They have since expanded to start another foundation-"Heal The Kids". Very similar to it's parent. Only with a stronger emphasis on children.

Heal The World-The Short Film

 A really great commentary on Michael's heart. It reveals his child-like innocence. Helping us grown-ups to look at the world in the eyes of a child.

 When we look at how fortunate we are as Americans and the plight of our fellow neighbors on foreign soil. You can't help but to 'make the world a better place".

Little Susie

Some believe this to be based on a true story. However, it's been more or less confirmed as a fictional tale. Partly Inspired by Gottfried Helnwein's artwork. Who is famous for his emotional imagery-Especially of children(in fact, Michael used his Lichtkind(Child of Light) painting to depict this song on The History Vol. 1 Booklet).

 In this tragic tale, Little Susie took her own life because of gross indifference to her well-being. One by one, her folks passed away. Father abandoned them, leaving mother and gram-father to wither in the grave.

 Years later, she was grafted into an unloving family. Though she was adopted, they did not take her in. Loneliness seeped it's cold dead fingers upon her tender heart. Until she couldn't bear it much longer. Although it was technically an accident. She subconsciously threw herself down the stairs to escape the pain.

 Although the story is clearly fictitious, Michael was proving a point. "Neglect can kill. Like a knife …

Invincible Session Outtakes

Here is an exhaustive list of all Invincible tracks that Either was sent to production hell or never quite made the list. According to Rodney Jerkins, there are a heck of a lot of finished outtakes from this session. Enough to fill multiple albums! So I lied. This is by no means an exhaustive list.:)

Fall Again Demo-I knew something spectacular was missing from his latest album! I Just couldn't quite lay my finger on it. I'm glad Michael took time away to be with his sick son. But this track fits in this session like a jigsaw piece. This beautiful Romantic Ballad was co-produced by Walter Afanasieff and Michael Jackson.

Beautiful Girl Demo-I can just see this on a soundtrack for a Romantic movie. Claiming top chart positions worldwide. But for unknown reasons, it was cut at the last moment.

 Michael Jackson and Tito both collaborated on an instrumental take which was also shelved.

The Way You Love Me-Sounds very much like something McCartney would do. With the elegant piano a…
