My Michael Jackson Memory
My best memory of Michael was at the Killer Thriller Party in London, June 2002. The previous day we had headed to Exeter, where Michael was appearing at the football ground but had got stuck in a 4 hour traffic jam and so had to turn back.
The next day Michael was appearing in London at The Killer Thriller Party put together by King of Pop magaizine. He appeared on stage and spoke to his excited audience and watched the show from a balcony in the nightclub. Just seeing him standing on stage was a truly a magical experience and that I'll never forget. There was just an amazing aura about him seeing him in person. The child prodigy and adult Thrilling Superstar.
However, when the party was over many of the fans, myself and my wife included decided to hang around. It was a no brainer Michael was still in view on the balcony!!!
After a few minutes he came over to the edge of the balcony, probably because fans were calling or chanting. He started waving at a few of us excited fans. My wife was calling out "Thankyou Michael"!! "Thankyou Michael". It waslike he really appreciated the fans adoration.
Fans directlly below the balcony were trying to pass Michael gifts or banners and Michael was reaching down to get them. Some he couldnt reach so he climbed over the balcony!!!! He then started really reaching down to the mega excited fans. His security looked amazed and worried trying to grab hold of him to stop him falling.
It was a spontaneous act by Michael. The fans loved it. I loved it.
Many other fans have personal stories of meeting Michael or being sent Pizzasby him when waiting outside his hotel.
If you in a state of grief of feeling down it can help to write down and share your memories. Whether they are of seeing Michael in person or just relating to his music or performances.
