In the past 13 months, we have seen Aloe Blacc cover Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” with the Grand Scheme and we have also seen Blacc perform with a string section. And now, it’s all come full circle as footage has been released of Blacc covering “Billie Jean” with that same string section. As you can no doubt imagine, it’s any absolutely fantastic rendition of the classic MJ track that has now become a cinematic ballad. We really need someone to just put out a concert DVD of Blacc performing with a string section. And while they’re at it, maybe we could get him to do a few more MJ covers. I, for one, request “Human Nature.”
