PARIS JACKSON, the daughter of the late singing legend Michael Jackson, has sensationally claimed her father's posthumous record 'Michael' doesn't even feature his own voice. Paris claims the vocals on the record belong to a musician named Jason Malachi, and that the public have been duped into thinking it's Michael singing, reports TMZ.com.
The comments were allegedly made during a video chat that was recorded and is being shipped around various media outlets. In the clip, Paris allegedly says, "It's not him... the whole album isn't him! Go online ... Go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. It's him! ... I should know if it's him or not because he would sing to me all the time". This isn't the first time the authenticity of Michael's final album has been brought into question - Huffington Post blogger and Jackson expert Joe Vogel wrote of the posthumous record, "The album ... is a hybrid creation.At times it feels truly inspired and very close to what Michael himself would have done; at other times, it feels a bit more like a tribute". 13-year-old Paris is slowly carving out her own entertainment career and has been cast in her first major screen role - she will play Lundon O'Malley in 'Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys', set for release in 2013.
YouTube videos of Jason Malachi do appear to confirm that the singer shares a remarkably similar voice to Michael Jackson. The mystery continues.
