The prosecution played the complete voice recording made by Dr. Conrad Murray of Michael Jackson in court on Wednesday and his slurring was almost incoherent as he talked about his dreams for his future, which was cut short upon his tragic death on June 25, 2009.
Dr. Murray made the voice recording with his iPhone on May 10, 2009 and jurors were given a printed transcript of the conversation between Jackson and his doctor and the heartbreaking recording has the King of Pop talking about his terrible childhood, saying “I had no childhood.”
Conrad Murray: I know you would.
MJ: Don’t have enough hope, no more hope. That’s the next generation that’s gonna save our planet – starting with – we’ll talk about it. United States, Europe, Prague, 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.
MJ: I want to do that for them.
MJ: I’m gonna do that for them. They 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’ve written because I hurt, you know I hurt.
