Alright, it appears the fact of the day to learn is that Sheryl Crow was once a backup singer for the King of Pop himself – Michael Jackson. In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the singer spoke on a few of her feelings and emotions during the Leaving Neverland documentary.
The main person of concern that Crow spoke in regards to was James Safechuck, also known as the young boy that accompanied MJ during his tour from 1987-1989.
Ms. Crow spoke to the feelings she had as she watched the documentary, and as anyone can sympathize with it’s an incredibly difficult situation to even try to begin to empathize with. Seeing clips of the young man in the Leaving Neverland documentary was particularly difficult to cope with.
“I happened to turn on CNN the morning after the first half aired. They showed clips of the young man who was on the Jackson tour with us and it made me…I mean, I still feel really…it’s like a death in the family, you know? It’s sad.”
While I think we all want to do our best to remember Michael Jackson as the once-in-a-lifetime talent that he was, but it will be very hard to move past all of the lives that were affected for better or worse throughout his time.
