Michael’s Loving Heart: April 9, 1984
Thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation, On April 9, 1984, David Smithee a 14 year old boy who had cystic fibrosis posed with Michael Jackson. Michael invited David to the Encino house where they watched movies, played video games and Michael taught David how to moonwalk. MJ lovingly gave David his original ‘Beat It’ Jacket, that he wore in his video. David died the following month, May 1984. MJ remembered David by dedicating the Jacksons’ Victory Album in his honor.
