The Thrill is Still on 29 Years Later

Wow, the album Thriller was released 29 years-ago today in 1982. This is Michael's most critically successful album. It featured a pop, rock, and R&B sound that will get anybody on the dancefloor. It featured tracks "Thriller," "Beat It," and "Billie Jean." The album was produced by the legendary Quincy Jones. It is currently the bestselling album of all-time and was certified 29x Multi-Platinum on August 21, 2009 for shipments of at least 29 million copies in the US. The album also picked up eight Grammy awards.

As a child, I always listened to this album whether it was on cassette or vinyl. I can listen to this album over and over again, but my favorite song I like to repeat is "Human Nature." It's my favorite Michael Jackson ballad ever. My favorite video have to be "Thriller" even though it terrified me as a child. It was also the first Michael Jackson dance routine I have ever learned. I did that to get over the fear of the zombies. Overall, I'm just so happy the "thrill" is still on 29 years later.

Gotta love my Thriller!

Living "Dangerous" For 20 Years

The eighth Michael Jackson studio album Dangerous was released November 26, 1991. I was six years-old at the time. I can remember dancing to all the music videos on television. I was truly in love with the "New Jack Swing" sound it possessed and it was produced by Teddy Riley. I love all the songs on the album but my favorites are "Jam" and "Remember the Time."

Mikette as a Hand Turkey. Made it on Google on Thanksgiving Eve after I helped hand out turkeys at the church. Boy, were they heavy, but I got a workout and made someone's day special!

17th Annual Children's Fashion Show and Performance

I had performed once again as "Mikette" at the 17th Annual Children's Fashion Show at Essex County College in Newark, NJ. It was such a cool event. The young children and teens were modeling some wonderful outfits. The designers featured were Carol Corbett, Tyrone Chablis, Antonio De'Silva, Donna BYRD and more. There were so many people and the children were so cute. I was so fortunate to be a part of such an awesome occasion. I wish I was able to take more photos of the event.

You all know that Michael loved the children and being here made me feel so much like him. The energy from the children fueled my performance. Although I was nervous at first, I managed to pull through. I danced to "Another Part of Me," "Can't Let Her Get Away," and "Billie Jean" which was a mix I made. The audience did show me love and took photos of me performing. I can't wait to do it again.

Rest In Peace Heavy D

Photobucket

May 24, 1967 – November 8, 2011


I still can't believe that actor, rapper, record producer, singer and former leader of Heavy D & the Boyz, has passed away. He was only 44 years-old. I grew up listening to his music and admired his style. He had so many hit songs, such as "Now That We Found Love." He appeared in Michael Jackson's "Jam" video and Janet Jackson's "Alright" video. He will always be remembered as what he called himself the "Overweight Lover" but overall we have nothing but love for you, Heavy.

Go for it, JAM!: D.I.Y.

Yes, I went for another video iconic look, the "Jam" outfit. His outfit was simple but memorable. As a kid I loved watching the video which featured another great MJ, Michael Jordan. This was a pivotal video because not only did it star two MJ's but Jordan was a key player of the Chicago Bulls getting a dance lesson from the King of Pop Jackson and was getting basketball tips from the King of the Hoops. Michael's dance moves were amazing throughout as always and he showed off some of his basketball skills. Another part I loved was when he kicked the ball backwards and made the shot. If he really did it, that was smooth. LOL. The video also featured a rap by Heavy D and brief appearances of Kris Kross.

If you have the dance moves like him, then you can definitely pull off the look. Hands down!

All you need is:
Basic v-neck t-shirt
Dark or medium orange long sleeved button up
Black pants
Black loafers
White wrap around right arm
White socks
Orange Basketball (Optional)

He's just too fly!

Love that smile!

Fall Block Party and Performance

Yesterday, Nov. 5th, was the annual Greater Newark Conservancy's Fall Block Party here in my hometown Newark, NJ. They are the ones responsible for helping my street obtain a community garden. This festival closes out the gardening season and brings people together one last time before the winter. They have many activities, such a raffles, pie tasting contests, apple tasting, games, apple tasting, and information booths. I was so happy that I was there main entertainment as a MJ Tribute Artist performer.

When I heard about the event and knew I was gonna be the entertainment, I quickly gathered my music together. I also had the perfect outfit idea as well. I chose and mixed five songs, "Another Part of Me," "Can't Let Her Get Away," "Billie Jean," "Jam," and "Wanna Be Startin' Something." So since it was a Fall event and in the "Jam" video he wore an orange button up, I decided to wear that outfit. It fits the fall color scheme.

My mom and my sister were on this adventure with me. When we arrived at the place, some people were looking at me like "Why is this girl dressed like Michael Jackson?" They had no clue I was their entertainment. Others that didn't know, didn't care, they were happy to see me.

People then became excited when they heard I was gonna perform. I performed outside in the sundial section and there were step seats surrounding it. This is my second time performing in Newark, so I was a little nervous, but like I thought, they showed me love. They were sticking by me as I danced my heart out. Michael was sitting right in the front row, cheering me on. After I was done people began to hug me, shake my hand and take photos with me. They were impressed and I was happy that I showed people how much Michael means to me. My mom and sister were also excited. My mom was proud of me. She also won the grand raffle prize, too. LOL
