"Merely A Man" is a tribute song I wrote for my IDOL, Michael Jackson. When I learned the news of Michael passing away, I was devastated. As a singer, songwriter, and performer - Michael was always an inspiration to me and I put together this montage with a song I wrote - using Michael's own words from past interviews - to pay tribute to my biggest musical influence, hero, and mentor. We will always miss you Michael, but your music will live on in our hearts. Although MJ is hailed as the King of Pop, a musical genius with overwhelming talents, a generous and non-relenting humanitarian, and simply a one-of-a-kind and loving human being to his family, friends, loved ones, and fans; we forget he was merely a man, just like you and I. If you like this song, please share it with everyone you know, pass it along, and spread the word.
