Studying Michael Jackson’s ‘Invincible’: Track-by-Track I
By Elizabeth Amisu

Dear Friend,

I started the online video series with two videos focused on the art, style and cinematic presence of Michael Jackson’s last fully realized short film, You Rock My World, from his last fully-realized studio album, Invincible.

In the third free video, I begin to explore Michael Jackson’s final album, going through a wide range of its tracks and categorizing them and their deeper meanings.
