Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: Aloe Blacc Billie Jean Cover + Bonus MJ posts

29 Dec

I stumbled upon this  cover of Billie Jean while trying to check out if soul singer, Aloe Blacc, had anything new out to listen to. The performance/video was a collaboration between Aloe–looking mighty dapper in his tux–composer Mihalj “Miki” Kekenj, and painter, Jaybo that took place in April 2011.

As most of you probably know by now, I can’t resist anything that has anything to do with Michael Jackson.  Aloe’s performance with the string quartet here definitely doesn’t disappoint.  Please enjoy.  And, for proof of my love of all things MJ, please click on the following links to past blog posts on the King of Pop:

Remembering Michael Jackson

27 Jun

I wrote this essay right after Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009.  It follows my love of Michael as a young girl, my trying to find my own “Michael” with my childhood and teen year crushes, and the development of my love for Michael as an artist.  Whatever your feelings for Michael are, I hope the world continues to recognize how truly gifted he was, and the vast contributions he made to the history of music and entertainment.  R.I. P.  Michael.

It’s lengthy, but please enjoy my essay, MICHAEL JACKSON ADMITS TO LOVING WENDY
