Michael Jackson-“Man In The Mirror LIVE Grammy’s 1988”

Before I was born, my mom for many years worked behind the scenes at awards shows such as the Academy Awards, the AMA’s and others. While the work was difficult (on your feet for HOURS and sometimes having to deal with difficult celebrities who view you as lesser of a person) and not always the greatest of pay, it did have its perks. She got to see some amazing performances. She got to see this man perform at one point. She said he was very shy and sweet backstage, so it is amazing he could command the stage in the manner which he did. This particular video is my favorite of Michael’s, it is extremely powerful.

  1. Incredible talent, for sure. I love how when he dances, it’s as though he is on a revolving stage. Thanks for reminding me.

    • No problem, even though aspects of his personal life were far from not being suspect, he truly gave music something that no one can take away. He is missed no doubt.

      • I believe as time goes by, people will remember the talent more and his eccentricities less.
