When Claude Kelly wrote his song “Hold My Hand” Akon asked if he could record it. Claude sent it to him, and after it was recorded Akon played the tape for him.
Billboard.com interviewed him, and he said “…all of a sudden I hear Michael Jackson’s voice. I was literally shaking by the time the song was over.” It came as a complete surprise that Michael was singing on the recording.
The recording was leaked on the internet, and fans who have heard it are delighted with the result.
