Did Jason Malachi Sing on Michael Jackson Album?

by at . Comments

Jason Malachi, a well-known Michael Jackson sound-alike, just "came clean" about singing on the star's posthumous album, which some MJ supporters have insisted features a vocalist other than the late King of Pop on at least some tracks.

But Malachi himself says he is the victim of fraudulent claims.

Here's the back story. In 2007, a song called "Mamacita" leaked, and was rumored to be an MJ song. It was actually Jason Malachi, a dead-ringer for MJ.

An MJJ Producion

Fast forward to this weekend, when Jason Malachi took to his Facebook page and made this astonishing claim: "Sheesh guys, I guess it's time to confess."

"I've lied to many people, including someone today, but ... It was me. It was me who sang 'Breaking News,' 'Keep Your Head Up,' 'Monster' and 'Stay.'"

"I had a agreement with the record company, but now the cat is out of the bag," he added. "Sorry to all my fans, and to my fellow Michael Jackson fans."

Jackson fans who insisted those "fake tracks" are not their idol likely felt vindicated by this - until Malachi's manager disavowed the Facebook page.

Thad Nauden says someone created a phony page in Jason's name, touting that he conspired to fool Sony, the Michael Jackson Estate and the public.

Nauden says Jason - a Deputy Sheriff in Maryland in addition to a singer - wants everyone to know beyond any doubt he did not sing those tracks.

Nauden threatened to get to the bottom of this hoax, claiming whoever created the Malachi Facebook page is malicious and had better lawyer up.

For whatever it's worth, here's "Breaking News" from Jackson's new album, along with one of Jason Malachi's own songs. Hear the resemblance?

A comment for Queenie, Prince was MJ's grandfather's name. Look into it. Not many can compete with the $ MJ donated to people he didn't even know. If he did anything to anyone it would have come out, and nothing but scammers have ever accused him. Just your user name it all.

Why do illiterate meth heads and 200 pound "baby mamas" wanna act like MJ was all that.. he was a boy loving pedo.. and I'll bet he felt up "prince" many times.. you jnow he had a crush on Prince and named his "son" after him.. he called Prince and tried to get him to come to his creepy house.. but Prince was into women too much at the time.. MJ had a latin boy that came around and "hung out" with him.. MJ was a butt-cuising boy chaser and you ignorant deniers are all stupid for thinking he was anything but a sexual predator..

Jason Malachi DID NOT sing on Michael Jackson's new cd. He is an impostor seeking publicity for his own music career with this hoax. People need to stop saying that the cd 'Michael' is fake. This is not true. It's Michael Jackson singing all the songs on that record. Michael Jackson has over 300 unreleased songs in his vault. Somebody who hates Michael Jackson started that baseless rumor over the internet to hurt his cd sales. Unfortunately people are so quick to believe rumors.

This whole CD is a sham. call it a fans intuition, sure there might be some songs on there that never go the airtime but the rest was just voice generated crap. Lets think outside the box here for a minute... whats the easiest way to replicate a voice??? EASY! Find a voice thats close enough to it and tweak it further to perfection via audio tools. This must be the crappiest MJ CD I ever heard. MJ never liked to be seen a lovey dovey person... You dont agree with me??? Oh ok here are some examples... Thriller,BAD,Dangerous,Blood on the Dancefloor and Invincible. What do all these CDs have in common I hear you ask?? An edge with a unique pinch of classic rock guitar. Not all please feed the children of the world shit. If this is MJ then im a blond headed Baywatch life gaurd

I loved Michael and want his legacy to live forever. I think his true fans will by his cd and have bought it regardless. As someone said before a piece of him--some Michael is better than no Michael at all. Michael wrote several unfinished songs and his fans want as much of him as we can. I understand the family and some feels its a disservice to him, but we miss him and want any part of him we can have.
