On June 25, 2009, the world seemingly stood still as news spread that Michael Jackson - "The King of Pop" and one of the most beloved, successful and iconic performers in history - was dead. Devotion is a multi-faceted and personal look at Michael's rise to the top and how he conquered the world, changed music forever, fell from grace and shocked us all with his departure on the eve of history's biggest come-back tour. Michael's was a whimsical life lived in the public eye-often marked by heartache, but led with soul and great devotion. It was a life that inspired others, filled with an extraordinary commitment to charity work and unwavering loyalty to family, friends and those who loved him most - his fans. A Personal Look at the Man Behind the Legend.

I recommend this video to anyone in any standpoint, from his fans to those who are anti-Jackson. Not many revelations, but what is needed for MJ's life is the truth and facts simply being told. That is enough to show who he really was.
For devoted fans, you do not need this for yourself. However, this could be used as a video for you to introduce real MJ to your friends who are currently anti-Jackson or are not well-informed of him. Since this is rationally and objectively narrated, it helps anyone gain fairer view about him apart from the media's fabricated stories. The mysterious flood of new information after Jackson's death have already illustrated that the media had long been fragmented the facts and reported only sensational, mostly anti-Jackson information. Now is the time for the truth to be spread.
Also, a combination of this video and MJ's performance video would be a great answer to your children's question who Michael was. A safe-for-children video.
This video is a happy medium. Supportive to MJ, but no too much screaming fans. Just facts, which I believe is the best. The only thing I think is missing in this video is Atty. Thomas Mesereau's convincing comment on MJ's trial.
