Remembering those we've lost, RIP Michael Jackson

Hi all,

It is with deep sadness and shock that I post this blog. Over the past year or so, we have lost some major talent. From Heath Ledger to Pavoratti, to Charlton Heston, to Bea Arthur to Michael Jackson.

Many of those who passed served as major influences to me growing up. Hearing Pavoratti sing was one of the first incidences that turned me onto opera and wanting to be an operatically trained singer. Watching Bea Arthur taught me as a young child that you don't need to be limited to only one aspect of entertainment and that you can make your own personal quirks work for you.

I'm as shocked as probably everyone else to learn of the death of Michael Jackson. I remember being 3 years old and always getting excited when he would appear on television. He was an amazing lyricist and composer; his extreme attention to detail and production in his stage shows and music videos impacted me tremendously in what I do now in my own videos and shows. His genius and creativity will live on forever. He battled many inner demons and I hope and pray that he has found peace now.
My condolances go to the Jackson family and the families of Ed MacMahon and Farrah Fawcett.
