This video of Jackson’s deeply emotional reaction to ‘Say Something’ by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera has been making the rounds and I can’t get over it. It is so incredibly touching to see how powerful music is and what it is capable of. He’s four years old and most likely doesn’t even know the message of the song, but the music and voices is all you need for it to make such an impact. His father, Mark, mentions that this is the first moment his son has been “moved” and it is amazing to see. In all honesty I had the exact same response when I first heard it, and every time there after. I love it for touching my soul, and others’ soul, as deeply as it has. I’ve played it on repeat thinking if I listen to it over and over it’s intensity will eventually fade, but no. I adore this song. I find it so honest, so brutal… so beautifully human.
