June 2009

LOS ANGELES, CA - It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Michael Jackson, who died on June 25, 2009 - too soon - at the age of 50.

In 1972, a year after James Taylor and I each released, "You've Got a Friend," Michael Jackson included a truly unique version of the song on his Motown album, Got to Be There. And when I look at his sweet face on this album cover, it reminds me just how long he has been in our hearts.
