La cantante Samantha Mumba parla del suo incontro con MJ.
Singer Samantha Mumba has once again spoken about one of her visits with Michael Jackson, this time while reportedly in Dubai (believed to have been back in 2006). In 2007, Samantha Mumba also explained how she and Michael had conversed for a couple of hours at one point while in Los Angeles and how they talked about music, dancing, and recording music. At the time, Michael purportedly told her that he would love to help Mumba’s musical career out and that he had written several songs that he would be willing to give to her. Mumba now balances her time living in both Los Angeles and Dublin, Ireland. Speaking about the Dubai experience, Mumba says:
“Meeting Michael was like the closest thing I will ever get to meeting a saint. He had this amazing aura to him. He was very spiritual and magical, even mythical. I was just in awe of him. The guy doesn’t have a bad bone in his body. He was so kind and had this incredible way with him.
“I didn’t know what to expect to be honest because you read and hear so much about him. When I walked into the room he was the most humble, warm, friendly person you could ever wish to meet. He also had a hilarious sense of humour. He kept cracking these jokes that had me in fits of laughter. It was weird because I was thinking, ‘I’m standing in a room having a hoot with Michael Jackson. Nobody is ever going to believe this’.
“Everyone in the music business knows he has made history. But I can still see him making another great album. I would love to see him perform. He’s a perfectionist so that’s why it takes him so long to release material. But I’d definitely be going along to see him in concert if he did a gig in Ireland.”
