Bela Farkas, the little boy whose life Jackson saved in 1994:

The young man in the pics is Bela Farkas who was the little boy who Jackson met in 1994 in Budapest while visiting a hospital. It’s the first time he’s ever given an interview. In 1994 Bela was an orphan in need of a liver transplant but at the time no such operation was performed in Hungary and it was very expensive abroad. When Bela was born his parents left him, so he had no hope to get the money. When Michael visited the hospital he asked the doctors why the boy was so thin and yellow and they explained what had happened to him. He immediately said that he would pay for the operation and the treatment. Not only would Jackson go on to pay for the operation, but also all the treatment that was needed after that and he continued to send Bela gifts too. Shortly after his operation Bela was adopted, so he grew up with loving parents. When Michael went to Hungary for the HIStory tour, he met Bela again. The boy then told him: “It as if you are my father.” Michael laughed and told him: “Then you are my son.” They remained in contact until Jackson’s death. Michael would send him cards, gifts for his birthday, for Christmas and Bela sent him drawings and photos and updates on his life. When Michael died Bela cried as if he had lost a father. He is 24 now and has just become the father of a healthy girl. He says the doctors predicted he would not live past his 18th birthday and here he is at 24 still doing well. He is forever grateful to Jackson and is sure he’s in Heaven now.

Just more proof of the beautiful soul of Michael Jackson. R.I.P. MJ.

I grew up as a Jackie Jackson and Jermaine Jackson fan girl when it came to the J5. Marlon was a few years younger than me and the teenaged me wanted a real man. (LOL) But once I saw and heard Marlon singing “Body,” in the video of the same name, I actually noticed him.

Remembering Leroy Roosevelt “Sugarfoot” Bonner (March 14, 1943 – January 26, 2013)

We lost so many, many of our musical icons in 2013. Here is one more I want to remember today, especially during this Black history month.

Happy 83rd Birthday Miss Nancy Wilson!

I had the honor of seeing Miss Nancy Wilson perform a few years ago and it was a wonderful, wonderful concert. I don’t know if Miss Wilson is still performing, but if she is and you ever get the chance to see her you must go.

Here are three live performance pieces for you and I to enjoy while we celebrate the birth of this musical icon born February 20th, 1931.

Many happy returns of the day to…
