“The first time I got a chance to meet Michael was onstage at Madison Square Garden. There were tons of people on the stage, and I just remember losing my mind. Like, Oh my God, that’s Michael Jackson right there. I was just over his right shoulder. And then when I finally got a chance to get on the stage with him, I was just shut down. He had the type of magic that you just bowed to. I just said, “I love you, and I know you’ve heard it a million and one times from fans all over the world, but you’ve meant so much to me as an entertainer, and I love you, and I’ve admired you all these years.” – Usher
