First and foremost I wanna say thanks again for hosting the ticket giveaway [to see Michael Jackson's This Is It]. Too bad the premier had to land on a weekday (I only had 4 hours sleep) but it was totally worth it. I figured I owed it to you guys to write a short review.
In a nutshell: it was 2 hours of pure awe. In my humble opinion, Michael Jackson is a God among musicians in this generation. When he sings, people listen. When he moves, people watch. And that was definitely the case last night at the midnight showing of "This Is It". In the documentary, you see the not-so-frail MJ doing what he does best, being a perfectionist. Down to every beat, every rhythm, every pause ("You gotta let it simmer. You gotta let it bathe in the moonlight,"). It was good to see Michael in his "natural habitat", singing, dancing and joking with the dancers and crew members. This final curtain call definitely reminds us how awesome MJ is.
Thanks again guys for the tickets and keep up the good work on promoting our beloved hometown!
