Music and Me
Like a mother with her children, Motown did not want to let go of Michael's boyishness. But as they say, "Autumn leaves must fall".
But they couldn't comprehend his vocals were in the process of being molded into something spectacular! Kind of like giving up something good for something better. Which is precisely what you'll see here.
You'll find a mix of tenor and soprano throughout the albums contents. With the profound innocence of Wonder's "With a Child's Heart" to the "Johnny Raven" tenor in his voice. Climaxing on his titled single "Music and Me".
If your dieing to find out how Michael sounded when his voice first cracked, then look no further! "Music And Me" has got it recorded!
