Since the 1990’s, the Cascio family were good friends with Michael. In 2007, he stayed with them for three months in New Jersey and during that time, he recorded an entire album with Eddie (Angel) Cascio the family’s twenty-eight year old son.
Three of the titles on the album include; ‘Breaking News’, ‘Burn Tonight’ and a track called ‘Water’. The family has often visited Hayvenhurst since Michael’s death and the Cascio family contributed a message to the booklet handed out at Michael’s memorial service in July of last year. The message read;
“We promise to always remain “The First Family of Love.” WE THANK YOU and will love you FOREVER and ALWAYS. ANGEL ‘Dr.Heat’ Cascio and the Cascio Family.”
The album tracks do not form part of the current deal with Sony to develop Michael’s music.
