Will You Be There

27th Nov, 1991
On occasion of MTV's 10th Anniversary Show, he appears live on stage to perform songs, 'Black Or White' and 'Will You Be There', the latter being included in the videoclip as part of a montage of other stage performances of the song.
A gospel choir of various ages joined Michael for Will You Be There, with an angel, performed by Angela Ice, flying down to Michael and putting her wings around him symbolizing hope.


"I wrote "Will You Be There?" at my house, "Never Land" in California. ...
I didn't think about it hard. That's why its hard to take credit for the songs that I write, because I just always feel that its done from above. I feel fortunate for being that instrument through which music flows. I'm just the source through which it comes. I can't take credit for it because its Gods work. He's just using me as the messenger."
~ Michael Jackson, 1992 ~

"I call it my giving tree, because it inspires me.
I love climbing trees in general, but this tree I love the most, because I climb up high and I look down on it's branches, and it gives me -- I just love it! So many ideas! I've written so many of my songs in this tree.
I've written Heal the World in this tree, Will You Be There, Black or White, Childhood."
~ Michael Jackson, 2002 ~

Hold me like the River Jordan
And I will then say to thee
You are my friend

Carry me like you are my brother
Love me like a mother
Will you be there?

When weary tell me will you hold me?
When wrong, will you mold me?
When lost will you find me?

But they told me a man should be faithful
And walk when not able
And fight till the end
But I'm only human

Everyone's trying to control me
Seems that the world's got a role for me
I'm so confused
Will you show to me
You'll be there for me
And care enough to bear me?

Hold me, show me
Lay your head lowly
Gently and boldly
Carry me there
I'm only human
Carry, carry
Carry me boldly
Gently and slowly
Carry me there
I'm only human

Lift me
Lift me up carefully
I'm weary and falling
I know you're there
But do you still care?

In Our Darkest Hour
In My Deepest Despair
Will You Still Care?
Will You Be There?
In My Trials
And My Tripulations
Through Our Doubts
And Frustrations
In My Violence
In My Turbulence
Through My Fear
And My Confessions
In My Anguish And My Pain
Through My Joy And My Sorrow
In The Promise Of Another Tomorrow
I'll Never Let You Part
For You're Always In My Heart.

Too simple

Pictures are too simple to capture
Words are too simple to describe
the love you shared,
and my endless love to you..


Let's Start Giving

I wish.... instead of buying any of things that use Michael's name~, either it's a so-called album, song, dvd, movie, tour, or anything, ~ ... I wish everybody could use their money to donate for charity.....

The only thing I know is, my country still needs some support.. #prayforindonesia
and the disaster in Haiti also has not finish yet... thus I heard that they're suffering of cholera now..
and.. and..

And today,
I had a class about education in remote areas around Indonesia, and I saw their pictures, some of them don't even have a bench to sit during the class,...
YES, they sit on the floor..!!!!!

"An education opens a person's minds to the entire world.
And there is nothing more important than to make sure everyone has the opportunity for an education."
~ Michael Jackson ~

Below, this picture is even more better than the pic I saw at the class today...
School in Papua, Indonesia....

you might want to see the other part of Papua:
This place called "Raja Ampat", part of the famous Coral Triangle..
Hm, surprised? and.. Ironic...?


I know it's only $0.99 for a song on iTunes, but in Indonesia, it means 5 (five) packs of wrapped noodles... but if we all make a donation, like we donate "A Million Trees for Michael", on behalf Michael's name, they probably can build a proper school... for the children...

I LOVE MICHAEL, and I believe Michael knows that,
And I love all his songs, and even more, I LOVE every message in each songs, especially those message about humanity.... and about this world, this lovely planet called the Planet Earth..
His message taught me about LOVE in universal sentences..

It's not about keeping his legacy alive through striving his song into number one charts,
but for me, it's about his BIGGEST LEGACY => LOVE.. giving back, help others,

-- If Michael is here with us,
what do you think Michael would choose for us,
to donate for charity,...
or to buy his song to be the #1 chart in the world? --
Answer it for yourself, both are Michael's ambitions,
which one is his priority...?

♪♪ There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We're all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know LOVE is all we need

♪♪We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day so LET'S START GIVING
There's a choice we're making we're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day just you and me♪♪

Well, send 'em you your heart so they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stone to bread

"Following that experience ('We Are the World', 1985), it was my dream to create a worldwide series of concerts, which would RAISE FUNDS TO BRING AID TO SUFFERING PEOPLE AROUNG THE GLOBE...
In the years ahead, it is MY INTENTION to create similar events, which will bring together musicians from around the world to raise additional funds for the World Peace Foundation for Children."
~ Michael Jackson, 1998 ~

And remember his words about Invincible album,
"This will be MY LAST ALBUM", 2001

Please remember this:

and please,
notice this video

"We are behaving like people without compassion and love for the most vulnerable section of society.
The children of the universe are without a spokesperson, they are voiceless...
We are all touched by the atrocities committed against children: sexual, physical abuse, child slave labor, educational neglect. We feel ashamed. Angry. Appalled.
But there is no action.... - NO ACTION. -"
~Michael Jackson~ South Africa, May 1998



Life is too short

For me (and perhaps most of us), Michael is PERFECTION.
So, today, I'm gonna post this thought, besides to share this with all of you, this also to remind me of 'How' to be "Mike-Like" :)

A dear friend of mine remind me that despite all the news about Michael, one thing we have to remember of his BIGGEST legacy, which is LOVE...
Michael never stop continue giving his love, even in his death - as it is written on his will..

"...because to heal the world, we first have to heal ourselves."
~ Michael Jackson, 2001 ~

Thus for us, we always say that his life was too short because we still need his LOVE, on contrary, I keep asking myself, what have I done to keep his "LOVE" legacy alive..?
Not just giving my LOVE for Michael himself, but for the world, for the people, for the neighbors..?

"Follow the Golden Rule. Be kind to your neighbors, love them as much as you would love yourself, do unto others...."
~ Michael Jackson ~

My thought of the week:
While I'm focusing for Michael, unstoppable love for him, remembering him, missing him, and I wonder of what concrete action have I done to keep his BIGGEST legacy alive..?

Another new friend from college asked me: "Why you love Michael?",
and I replied, "because he had given all his life for the world...";
Then an insight came of my mind, "hm... and, so.... what have I done for my 28 years of life...?"

"Life is too precious and too short not to reach out and touch the people we can." ~ Michael Jackson ~ [Moonwalk]


♪♪ This life don't last forever
(Hold my hand)
So tell me what we're waiting for
(Hold my hand)


Won't be Fooled Again

There's a connection of $ony, AEG, the Estate, and even Kenny Ortega because they are the ones behind Michael's sudden death, it's all conspiracy!!
Do you believe it's all conspiracy? A long time conspiracy against Michael...
"But there’s a lot of conspiracy, I’ll say that – conspiracy going on as we speak."
~ Michael Jackson, 2005"

And, imo, that quote still applicable even after his death...
Though I'm not an expert of the conspiracy theory, or even the conspiracy-against-Michael theory, but I read! Esp. the mjfansboycottsony site, and the more I read, the more puzzling my head became.. Then I turned back to watch and read his words, and... Yupe, there it is:
"..My level of trust will change. And ah, there’s a lot of conspiracy going on. I’ll say that much. A lot of it..... All around me."
~ Michael Jackson, 2005 ~
I don't even know how did they do this to Michael, but I just feel that I won't ever betray Michael, thus I already did once: watched the TII movie.

A new friend of mine said that her father is also a huge fan of Michael, and she said that her father refused to watch TII because it's not Michael's film. Of course she shared that story with her peculiar face of showing that she feels weird about her father's decision, BUT, on contrary, it was like a slap on my face! She got me there, her father is right!!!

My mind went here and there, the questions of: "why her father thought that way?", "What brought it to his mind?", "Does he know about this conspiracy?"
- on my last question, I doubt he knows it, her father is a pilot, and the issue about the conspiracy never had in our media headlines, and I don't think he has the chance for social network either..

And at the end, I wish that I can be like her father..
He uses his logical thinking above the consume behavior based on emotional feelings.
When I decided to watch TII, I was on the state of missing someone I love (as I still missing him now).. I watched 3 times, two of them are with my friends, and the last one was just me and myself - it was when these tears can't hardly stop.....
My emotion beat my logical thinking. Did Michael ever blessed this movie?!! He was killed to do this movie..!

Hm, here we go, the conspiracy cover up with excuses of "We're doing it for the fans", ~ A so-called-new-MJ-album is about to finish and ready to be released by $ony.
Oh, c'mon, WHAT MORE CAN HE GIVE? He had given all his life for the world, and the fans, and for $ony either!

And that Breaking News, which is definitely NOT Michael's voice, is just another emphasis that $ony NEVER intend to keep Michael's legacy alive, they're only after for the big M; $-MONEY-$!

They GOT me once, but I won't be fooled for the second time!
Are you...?

".... being the artist that I am, at $ony I've generated several billion dollars for $ony. Several billon. They really thought that my mind is always on music and dancing, it usually is, but they never thought.... that this performer myself would out think them.

So... we can't let them get away with what they're trying to do, because now I'm a free agent. I just owe $ony one more album, it's just a box set, really, with two new songs which I've written ages ago. Because for every album that I record, I write like, literally, I'm telling you the truth, I write.... I write at least 120 songs every album I do, so... I can do the box set, just giving them any two songs.

So I'm leaving $ony, a free agent... owning half of $ony, I own half of $ony's Publishing... And I'm leaving them, and they... they're very angry at me, because I, I just... I just did good business, you know.

So the way they get revenge is to try and destroy my album. But I've always said, you know... art, good art, never dies.
Thank you."

Bless Michael's Soul

I try to do what's right for me
But no one sees the way I see
And then I try to please them so
But how far can this pleasing go

Somethings soon to come over you
You just can't please the world and yourself
You gotta start doing whats right for you
'Cause life is being happy yourself

Then you should bless his soul
It's hard to find
A person like you
You're one of a kind
If I were you, I'd change my mind
And start living for me in these changing times

Sometimes I cry 'cause I'm confused
Is this a fact of being used
There is no life for me at all
'Cause I give myself at beck and call

Somethings soon to come over you
You just can't please the world and yourself
You gotta start doing whats right for you
'Cause life is being happy yourself

Then you should bless his soul
It's hard to find
A person like you
You're one of a kind
If I were you, I'd change my mind
And start living for me in these changing times

The life your leading is so dangerous
It's so dangerous, dangerous all
The life your leading is so dangerous
Doggone dangerous, dangerous, dangerous

Somethings soon to come over you
You just can't please the world and yourself
You gotta start doing whats right for you
'Cause life is being happy yourself

Then you should bless his soul
It's hard to find
A person like you
You're one of a kind
People will cry
If rain or sun
Try to please all
And you've pleased none
