"I think he stands on the same level as a Sinatra from another era, of Elvis, and of any of The Beatles, George Harrison and John Lennon. Music is such a part of one's life that if you think about a person, especially someone who gave us so much music, songs will come to your mind, and some songs will strike a chord, and you'll remember, 'Oh, yeah, that's right, that summer. Michael Jackson, wow,'" said Fong-Torres.

Fong-Torres had known Jackson since he was 13-years-old, and calls the pop star a normal person with an abnormal gift.
