Dear friends,

How can I even write this message through my tears of mourning and tears of Joy?

Tears for the Joy Michael Joseph Jackson gave us over the years and the Joy of listening to his Angelic voice and the Joy of his unparalleled performances!

The world has truly lost a Special Soul and there will never be another Soul in this world like Michael Jackson.

As we get over the shock and sorrow, let's emerge with the knowing that he has ascended to a higher plain and is welcomed by our Heavenly Father who can say to Michael “Job Well Done My Son".

I am truly honoured to have been a part of his career and have him as my Dance Brother.

I can't thank him enough for allowing me to be in his productions as I’m sure are the many musicians, dancers, directors, singers and anyone who were blessed enough to have worked with or known him as the sweet and kind human he was.

Please listen to his songs and reflect on his influence on your life and this world. He played a huge part in trying to heal us all with his art and love. Let's pray for the strength of his parents and family members as they mourn the loss of their dear Michael who they raised and shared with the world.

This is one of the darkest days in my life and I’m trying to be strong in God's mercy. God Bless the soul of our Beloved Michael Joseph Jackson. Please pray for him and his family and especially his children.

Love, Jeffrey Daniel
