EARTH SONG- Thank you Michael Jackson

A song for the Earth... Animal Rights, Human Rights, Earth Rights~ " What have we done" sings Michael Jackson? He gave us his heart in this song - asking us to wake up. R.I.P. Michael....the rest is up to us. How badly do we wish
to turn things around? It is up to us!

From LastFM " “Earth Song” is the third single from Michael Jackson’s album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I. It is a ballad that incorporates elements of blues, gospel and opera. Jackson had a long-standing history of releasing socially conscious material such as “We Are the World”, “Man in the Mirror” and “Heal the World”. However, “Earth Song” was the first that overtly dealt with the environment and animal welfare. The song was written and composed by Jackson; the task of production was split between Jackson, David Foster and Bill Bottrell."
Songwriters: Larson, Melvin E.; Marcellino, Jerry A.
