“Over the years we became a family,all of us.You are my family…My children are your children and all the children of the world are our children and our responsibility.

It was you,who put your heart on the line.It was you,who stepped forward to defend someone you love.It was you,on a worldwide basis who supported me as my army,my soldiers of love.

You were always there.You are always loyal and I love you forever.” Michael Jackson

“He was very sweet. He came to our apartment. My mother cooked dinner. He was very easy to be with. There was a genuine sweetness about him. And treating everybody the same way. Didn’t matter who it was — my family, the crew. The only time he expressed [a production demand], and again it was out of compassion — the older man is getting mugged and gets pushed at one point. And we did it a couple of takes and he was nervous about that. He didn’t want anyone to get hurt. We didn’t know if we had it on film and we said, ‘Let’s do it again’. And he begged me not to do it again. He said, ‘Please, this shouldn’t be violent.’ So I didn’t do it.”   Martin Scorsese on Michael Jackson, Bad (1987)

"Throwback Thursday I spent a week with the Jacksons. In 1981 they practiced their tour in Ft Worth. I couldn’t tell anyone the brothers were in town, so I took lots of pictures. Mike asked for Cowboy boot so I took him to Justin Boot Outlet in Cowtown. He was so grateful that I got this photo with him in his regular knock around duds. He was shy and quite the practical joker. I miss him."    Dewayne Dancer broadcast entertainer

"The reason I even wanted to sing and dance as a kid was because of Michael Jackson. Seriously, he was and still is my idol! Being apart of that video was more than just being on camera in a video, it was a chance to be apart of Michael’s legacy and greatness. Simply put, it was a little kid’s dream actually come true!"
Alvester Martin - dancer in MJ’s new short film ‘A Place with No Name’

"When I was barely 22, Michael Jackson began eating at the little health food restaurant where I was cooking in Hollywood. It was near the studio where he was recording Thriller - he loved our spicy authentic New Mexican chile sauce, whole grain pizza crusts and he had a sweet tooth, so we baked lots of cookies.

By the time he launched the Victory Tour in the summer of 1984, 2 years later, I was asked to join as his personal chef. My life would never be the same-the biggest impression from the next 2 years is the sheer dedication and hard work I saw from him, with singers and dancers, sound technicians and choreographers, everyone from a roadie to a visiting superstar. It inspired me to buckle down, and work hard at being better—being the best—chef and baker that I could be.
My experience with MJ came full circle when his long time lawyer offered me a ticket to his memorial service in 2009. Though his life was so tragically cut short, what started as a very somber day, emotional and heartfelt, ended as such a joyous tribute to the spectacular life he led.

In that spirit I offer some of the cookies that I baked for MJ over the course of those years. Oh—one of his long times staff members, Bill Bray, teased him that since they had no sugar or white flour, they weren’t cookies, they were ‘ookies! That has become their beloved nickname.”  Mani Niall

"Working with Michael in the ‘This Is It’ movie, was one of greatest musical experiences of my life. Being there with him everyday taught me the importance of hard work, perseverance, and being committed to your art 100%, while striving to always be kind to others in the process. To be able to support Michael during this musical venture was truly an epic experience for me. No one knew it at the time, but the King of Pop was making history all over again with ‘This Is It’. It went on to become the most successful music movie documentary of all time. In its first opening weekend it grossed $101 million worldwide, making it the number one film at the box office, and on its theatrical run, the film’s worldwide revenue gross was nearly $300 million. The love for Michael’s music is ever growing and worldwide. To be a part of this was truly a magical journey, a musical and memorable gift that I greatly cherish. We all miss him dearly."
