Studying Michael Jackson’s ‘Invincible’: Inspiration & Innovation
By Elizabeth Amisu

Dear Friend,

There has never been a time when Michael Jackson’s work wasn’t topical, significant and relevant. Invincible remains Jackson’s least known and most overlooked album, which makes it an amazing opportunity for researchers like you to examine and dissect.

How was it that an album by the most successful recording artist of all time managed to fly under the radar? Why did so many factors convene at once to turn Invincible into a secret treasure filled with little-known masterpieces? This lecture starts you on your journey to the answers.
