Talk of the Town: MJ Memorial Singer Revealed
Among the tears and the memories of Michael Jackson’s memorial on Tuesday most people were buzzing about the young Blasian woman who ended the performances with MJ’s heartfelt song, “Save the World”. By early Wednesday afternoon the young singer was revealed as Judith Hill.
Hill has performed before in Europe and was slated to be a singer on MJ’s “This Is It” tour. She is of Black and Japanese heritage. Growing up biracial Hill described herself as being a misfit depending on the social group and for some she was either “too Black” “too Asian” “too loud” or “too quiet”. “I was a traveler, kind of a drifter,” Hill said. ” But, looking back I see how all of those experiences, friends, and cultures made me who I am today.”
