Due to this quality, Michael worked with Lionel Ritchie for the song “We Are The World”and other singers like Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, and Stevie Wonder.
Nevertheless, MJ had one last wish on what concerns collaborations and that was to sing with Lady Gaga on his “This Is It“ tour.
It seems that Travis Payne, MJ former choreographer, was the one who asked Jacko if he wants to sing with somebody in particular. Payne remembers that Jackson’s answer was “You got to get into her. She’s good.” The choreographer also suggested MJ to sing next to Janet, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Celine Dion, Sting, Seal, Bono, and Tina Turner and his answer was positive : “Sure, they can all come as long as their schedules [permit]”.
