I watched the Jackson 5 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil when I was a little girl. It was love at first sight! Later, when I moved to Los Angeles, I had the honor to sing on a event put together by MTV called "Dinner with Michael Jackson". MTV chose people from all over the world to come to LA and meet him. It took place on a big tent close to Palm Springs right beside the set where he was filming a video. I have to admit that I was shocked when I saw his face, but my love for his artistry was and is big than the visual surprise. He was a big inspiration in my artistic life. It was bittersweet to celebrate my birthday on the day he passed away.
Love always, Katia Moraes : )
