    Mj version is better imo. MJ made R add a bit more punch to the production as well. the opening use of the synth trombone was Mj's co production on the song.

    truth be told the best cover that Rob did was on the 96 tour where he did a tight mini solo of it.

    this sounds aight, not seeing his better Mj inspired tracks.

    taxi cab, and he a few other mj nods the background vocals on "hotel" is very mj inspired i'm your angel.


    i''ll say this his love for MJ is sencere on the sho nuff.

    i dig the intro at what he says.

    I was expecting a similar version to that 1996 live performance on Love Letter when I heard it was going to be a bonus track ... its a nice cover but he set the high standard for You Are Not Alone back in '96

    I don't think he really tried to outshine MJ's version. To tell you the truth cause this song compared to the rest of the album is flat as hell vocally

    I don't think the two versions should be compared really. This is just meant as a tribute to MJ, not a competition

    Co-sign. And as a tribute, it's really nice. I love the intro. Hidden Content

    Having said that, Rob's version is OK. I prefer Mike's. One thing I learned a long time ago is: if Michael Jackson has sung a song, don't ever try to sing it or cover it your way, you'll be fighting a losing battle.

    Agreed 100%.

    Kellz made it sound lighter, less dramatic. His voice sounds lovely, tho. I prefer MJ's version, but knowing how Kellz feels about him and his passing, I just love that he did it.

    Yeah, this comes across as less of a long song and more of a tribute - which some of the lyrics seem to lend themselves too. Like it, but he's definitely not trying to compete with this.
