It’s been suggested that though the man may be gone, fans may still get to enjoy unheard recordings from the King of Pop.
Reports are saying that Michael Jackson kept a secret library of over 100 songs he planned to be released after his death, but only for his children.
One of the singer’s biographers, Ian Halperin, author of Unmasked, The Michael Jackson Story, said before his death: “He wants to leave them for his kids, a very personal legacy to them. I was told he will not let them come out now.”
Though that might have been his intention, there are more reports that the superstar was in over $400 million dollars in debt and the selling of this alleged collection would be insisted upon to cover that debt.
Michael’s family have just released an official statement following his tragic passing on Thursday.
“In one of the darkest moments of our lives we find it hard to find the words appropriate to this sudden tragedy we all had to encounter. Our beloved son, brother and father of three children has gone so unexpectedly, in such a tragic way and much too soon. It leaves us, his family, speechless and devastated to a point, where communication with the outside world seems almost impossible at times.
We miss Michael endlessly, our pain cannot be described in words. But Michael would not want us to give up now. So we want to thank all of his faithful supporters and loyal fans worldwide, you – who Michael loved so much. Please do not despair, because Michael will continue to live on in each and every one of you. Continue to spread his message, because that is what he would want you to do. Carry on, so his legacy will live forever.
In addition, Joseph Jackson wishes to personally convey: “My grandchildren are deeply moved by all the love and support you have shown for them and their father, Michael Jackson.”
