One of my favorite tributes to Michael was when I was a junior in college. I took advanced lighting design, and while several students were choosing slow passionate songs full of rich deep colors and slow fades, I chose "Bad" by Michael Jackson. Just the intro alone had the potential to ruin me...three quick beats followed by a rapid succession song. I think it was a pretty unexpected choice because after the quick (successful!) intro, the class gave a quick clap and cheer. What a blast to see a favorite song in bursts of color across a proscenium stage. It was probably a small dream of mine to light the legend himself. As if I could have done him justice.
I hope you are moonwalking for Farrah and Ed across heaven tonight, Michael!
