The "Michael Jackson" song

Reader comment on item: Did Michael Jackson Convert to Islam?
in response to reader comment: Michael don't waste time,

As salaamu 'alaykum:
I am a person who has listened to Michael Jackson since he and I were both 9 years old. I have all of his recordings since that time and I am VERY familiar with his voice. This song is NOT MJ! First of all, give Michael credit for being a better singer than that. Also, there are no MJ vocal nuances, which is his trademark. Michael had trouble pronouncing certain ENGLISH words on some songs due to his having no formal schooling. How is he all of a sudden able to speak PERFECT Arabic fus-ha? The bad thing about this is that it is all over the Web. If this fallacy was initiated by Muslims then shame on them for the lie. This is not to say that MJ would not one day become a Muslim, if he isn't already. It is to say that, we Muslims shouldn't try to WISH him into Islam in this manner, fooling many people and not to mention, making tons of illegal (haram) money. If this is not Zain Bhika or Yusef Islam, then they should come forth and clear their names. They MUST know about it by now...
