Last night I had the privilege of viewing Michael Jackson’s rehearsal for “This is it” which is currently being broadcasted in cinemas worldwide. It was released on the 28th October 2009. I have been a fan since I was a little girl and so sitting through the 111 minutes was an experience worth to remember. This documentary showcased Michael’s talent as well as his character. His fans had the opportunity to witness him in his natural element. The highlights of the documentary were being able to see Michael as the musical genius he was. On one of his classics the ‘The Way You Make Me Feel”, (from the ‘Bad’ album), Michael was seen being a perfectionist concerning the tempo of the song. His passion and enthusiasm for music was visibly apparent.
The documentary ended with his well known song “Earth Song” with themes centered on environmental issues. The stage was transformed into a Forrest and was inspired by the music video for “Earth Song”. Overall a touching piece which left me wondering how it would be if he was actually alive and doing these tours. I give it a 10/10. It is worth watching!
