I happened to see him in concert as a little kid. My mom took me, and the experience was mind-blowing. There was something so insanely charismatic about him — I never took my eyes off the stage. It was one of the most special evenings of my life at that point, and it's still a treasured memory. I keep thinking about that concert today, and I've also been singing "The Way You Make Me Feel," one of my favorite songs of his, which captured my imagination at a young age.
That's what's on my mind in the wake of his sudden death. I'd love it if you shared what's on yours. Rest in peace, Michael.
