In my early years soul music was not readily heard on UK radio stations. Sometimes ‘Top Of The Pops’ would air the occasional group so I grew up on a diet of Pop music, Reggae and Ska. Reggae and Ska records (yes, not mp3 or CDs but records!) which were imported into the UK. I recall my mum bringing home the Jackson 5 ‘Greatest Hits’ album, I listened and I was hooked. I danced and danced and learnt the words. Brilliant stuff!
I’ll let you into a little secret. I dreamed of marrying Michael Jackson…one day. I guess I was no different to all the teenage girls who liked the Jackson 5. Truth be told I did marry ‘Michael’ but not Mr Jackson, rather Mr Stephenson – LOL!
Really happy to include Michael Jackson’s Beat It track in my ‘Not Just Jazz IV’ set this year. I enjoyed learning the choreography created by CJ and Sun.REI. thanks ladies, it was a blast! Hope you enjoy it too. I even don on the red leather jacket 🙂
