news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young
age, I just dont have the words. Divinity brought our souls together
on The Wiz and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the
80s. To this day, the music we created together on Off The Wall,
Thriller and Bad is played in every corner of the world and the
reason for that is because he had it all talent, grace, professionalism
and dedication. He was the consummate entertainer and his
contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. Ive
lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him. (Source: Vibe.com)
