This Is It

Yesterday Gabe and I went to see Michael Jackson's This Is It. If you get a chance to see it while it is still in the theater it is definitely worth your time. Michael Jackson was truly an artist and he put his hand in every single aspect of his show. It was really interesting to see it all take shape.
The documentary focused on the tour he was working on. It showed everything from choosing the dancers and getting the stage and songs ready. You could see how happy he was to be working on a show again. I kept thinking that if he had to pass away so young it was at least a good thing he was able to do something he loved so much right beforehand.
Had he been able to do the tour it would have been a must see event. His voice sounded great, the dancers were amazing and the videos that they did to play as backdrops for the stage were awesome. Unfortunately, he didn't even get to perform the first show, but This Is it is a wonderful way for all of their hard work to not be in vain. He had so much talent and was such a gracious man. What I took away from the movie the most was that he was always willing to work hard and was respectful when trying to get others to see things in a different way. When he would ask someone to change something he would always end with the statement, "God bless you."
God bless you Michael Jackson. May you rest in peace.

Well said... my husband won't take me to go see it at the theaters - he says it's a rental (or we'll get it in netflix). I am happy to read such good things about it. Thanks for posting this :)
