"When Michael said he wanted to record ‘Man in the Mirror,’ the demo was in a key that was comfortable for me and one step too high for Michael.” “So he wanted me to re-sing the demo in the new key, and when I went into the studio to do it in the new key Michael followed me with a video camera. I said, ‘What are you doing?’ He said, ‘I want to record you performing the song… because I want to sing it like you.’ And I’m like, ‘Great, Mike; all my friends are really gonna believe me when I tell them, ‘Oh, Michael Jackson wanted to sound like me.’ And I’m cracking up and he’s cracking up, but he’s still recording. And it’s in (‘Bad25’). I never thought I would see it because it’s Michael’s personal footage. It’s amazing.”

"He was still alive and getting ready to tour, so there was a different kind of vibe going on. I think the fact he’s passed now is what makes ‘Bad’ more special. I did notice that when he passed away, all the news footage and all the specials about his life, it wasn’t ‘Michael Jackson The Thriller’ or ‘Michael Jackson Beat It;’ it was ‘Michael Jackson Man In the Mirror.’ That just spoke volumes to me."

"Quincy called me back and I thought we were still finishing ‘Man in the Mirror,’ ‘cause we had been working on that a few days earlier and I knew we hadn’t finished it,""There was another song being played, so I thought maybe they were running behind. I just made myself comfortable sitting behind Quincy and knitting, and then he says over his shoulder, ‘Do you think this song?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, yeah.’ Then he said, ‘Can you sing it?’ ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘Go in there and sing it. Michael, go in there,’ and as we’re walking through the door it hit me I was gonna sing this song with Michael.
