And Finally Jacksons v AEG Timeline

Will.i.am says Jacko’s voice is great

By | Published on Wednesday 6 May 2009

Will.i.am has said that Michael Jackson’s voice is sounding great, quashing speculation that the singer’s vocals may have suffered from a ten year period of inactivity. Well, inactivity in the live sphere, at any rate. Because he’s been recording, hasn’t he? And no doubt having a little sing to himself when doing the dusting, and suchlike.

Speaking about recent recording sessions and Jacko’s perfectionism, Will.i.am told Starpulse: “He was in my house. It’s one thing you hear rumors, but when the guy’s in your house, laying on your floor as you’re playing beats, he’s like, ‘Will.i.am, I love this beat.’ He’s laying and his feet are up on the chair, he’s kicking his feet. I’m like dude, Michael Jackson’s laying on my floor. He’s testing his voice and three hours has passed. He’s just mi mi mi mi mi mi mi mi mi, mi mi mi mi mi mi mi mi mi. He’s doing both voice testing just to sing for five minutes. He’s testing his voice for three hours to sing for five minutes”.

He continued: “I don’t know. Fergie don’t do that shit. Usher don’t do that shit. None of the people that you think still got it do that. I’ve seen it, in my house. That’s because he’s a perfectionist and he just likes testing his voice. I’m like, ‘Dude, can we record now? Because it’s three hours, and it’s only going take five minutes.’ ‘No, I just want to warm it up.’ Like dude, that’s hot. It’s warmed up. And he has it. I’ve seen it. He mi mi mi’d for three hours. Perfect pitch”.
