Music Mondays: A Special Message of Encouragement from MJ


The verdict was announced today in the trial of Conrad Murray, and while people express their emotions and opinions about the case, who is or isn’t at fault, etc. I wanted to focus instead on something different:  a special message from MJ to you.


The song for today’s Music Mondays selection is one that brought tears to my eyes the first time that I heard it. It is a song that has got me through many rough days and long nights; times of uncertainty, indecision, and pain. Every time I listen to it, I cannot help but think that MJ did not only write and record this song for the sake of encouraging others, but to encourage himself as well. The “Billie Jean’s” and “Beat It’s” and other chart-toppers are all great, but this is the song that I carry with me everywhere I go, all of the time.


As you listen to this song and read the lyrics, I hope that it lifts your spirits—that it inspires you and empower you to keep your head up and keep going, no matter how challenging things may seem. I hope that it places a spark inside of you to live your best life. MJ’s special message through this song to you is that if you ignore the naysayers, press on and keep the faith, you will develop the strength, courage, and wisdom needed to overcome any obstacle you may face—that whatever you want in life, you can achieve it if you just believe it.



Thank you MJ for sharing your special gift of music with the world.

You got me a little watery eyed on this one, Makeba!

I miss MJ!

I do understand the message in this song though. And I definitely agree that we must keep the faith; believing that what we want the most will happen if we just do that.

I thank you for sharing this with us. It was very encouraging this morning. 🙂

Awesome post. 🙂

Greetings: I was actually teary-eyed as I wrote this post! Every word came from the heart. I could go on and on but I miss him tremendously also Deeone! This song of his is one of my very favorites because the words are so powerful. I also love the ad-libs that he adds towards the end–it is just more testament of how MJ was as a person–always wanting others to be the best that they could be! His legacy will live on forever! ~Thank you so much for commenting! 🙂
