Godfather of Soul and king of pop.....

  • on: March 01, 2010, 04:59:36 AM
This has nothing to do with the investigation I just wanted to give props to James Brown who paved the way for MJ. I was watching some footage of James Brown.  He was an awesome performer, and great showman just like MJ.  When I watch him I can definitely see the influence he had on MJ.  The way James Brown holds the mic and stomps his foot when he sings remind me so much of MJ.  James Brown also had some outstanding foot work which I see MJ took some of it and made it his own.  Even the way James Brown sing with so much emotion and soul, and the way he make up his own words.  MJ did the same thing.  They both were known for their unique style and fashion.  James with the permed out hair and polyester suits and the cape, MJ with the curly hair,glitter socks,glove and jacket.  James Brown also gave pride to the Black community with his song I'm black and I'm proud which was needed at that time.  MJ also made songs to encourage people to better themselves and care about humanity. I think sometime it's nice to give due to the people that paved the way because without James Brown there may have been no MJ as we know and love.  MJ was also influenced by Fred Astaire and Jackie Wilson who was also a great dancer.  Some think he was greatly influenced by Elvis but that's not the case.  It's good to know who actually influenced such a great artist.  I know there are some younger fans on here that probably aren't familiar with these artist.  I am 34 so I know of them.  I think the old school artist had so much class and showmanship than artist of today.  Especially the Motown artist.  MJ had mad love and respect for James Brown.  He cried when he spoke to James Brown personally on the BET awards about how much he admired him and how much he had an influence on him.
