Fondest MJ memory: “When i was a kid i would put on shows in my living room. I would always pick a Michael song to sing & dance to. You could hear me singing “whoooo-hoo” around the house for many of my childhood yrs..& still to this day;) lol
The first time i saw Thriller..i was scared & amazed at the same time. I would rewind all the dance parts & try to learn the choreography. I wore that beta tape out!”
