London: Michael Jackson was heard in a slurred voice, recorded weeks before his death, explaining how he planned to take the millions he would make with his ‘This Is It’ tour to build the ‘biggest children’s hospital in the world’ with a game room and a move theatre, to compensate for his ‘lost childhood’.
Jackson talked about his private suffering and his career in the recoding played to jurors in the Conrad Murray trial.
Murray made the recording on May 10, 2009 - just six weeks before Jackson`s death - on his iPhone using an iTalk application.
In the taped the King of Pop revealed how he felt the pain of abandoned children because he never had a childhood himself.
“My babies. They walk around with no mother. They drop them off, they leave - a psychological degradation of that. They reach out to me - please take me with you,” the Daily Mail quoted the singer as saying in the tape.
“I want to do it for them. That will be remembered more than my performances. My performances will be up there helping my children and always be my dream.
“I love them I love them because I didn’t have a childhood. I had no childhood. I feel their pain. I feel their hurt. I can deal with it.
“Heal the World, We Are the World, Will You Be There, The Lost Children. These are the songs I have written because I hurt, you know, I hurt,” Jackson said in a slow, faltering tone much different to the star’s famously high voice.
In an eerie recording, Jackson also said he wanted his fans to hail him as “the greatest entertainer in the world.”
Prosecutors claim it was taped while the star was under the influence of the hospital anaesthetic Propofol.
