music is life, music is breath, music is us

RIP Michael Johns

I never was much into contest singing shows, but in the rare times that I did watch them, I was able to see certain singers that really surprised me. They surprised me in that I was blown away by their amazing talent. Michael Johns was one of these people. Over everyone else, his voice stood high above. As a result, I’ve followed his career ever since. His death comes at a shock to me and anyone who was a fan. To remember him, I’m posting a video that shows his amazing voice and infectious personality. He covers Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” in an amazing display that really gives new life to the song (leaps and bounds beyond any other cover I’ve heard,including my own). 35 is too young to die, may your soul soar with the wind Michael.
