No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope - she's humble, loving and sincere.

She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions in so many ways.

Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that you do for us - I am proud to have my daughter grew up in a world where she has people like you, to look upto."

Timmy was born blind, and with cerebral palsy. But this never slowed him down - he has proven to everyone, that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard."

Black Or White

"When I was just starting out, my first producer used to make me listen to michael jackson’s live performance of “who’s loving you”. He would have me watch that for hours back to back to back.

What he wanted me to learn was his soul. You could hear his soul. and he was this little kid who hadn’t experienced love but he was a vessel. for whatever reason he could evoke more emotion than an adult. It was so raw and so pure. It was these little things that he did that were just swag. It’s something that’s god given.

Michael taught me that sometimes you have to forget technique, forget what you have on. if you feel silly, you have to go from the gut just let it go.

Michael Jackson changed me, and helped me to become the artist i am - thank you michael.""

Futura
Futura

Futura formerly known as "Futura 2000" is an American graffiti artist. He started to paint illegally on New York's subway in the early seventies, working with other artists such as ALI. In the early eighties he showed with Patti Astor at the Fun Gallery, along with Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Richard Hambleton and Kenny Scharf. Futura painted backdrops live on-stage for British punk rock band The Clash's 1981 European tour. More recently, he is a successful graphic designer and gallery artist. One of the most distinctive features of Futura's work is his abstract approach to graffiti art. While the primary focus, during the 1980s, of the majority of graffiti artists was lettering, Futura pioneered abstract street art, which has since become more popular. Conversely, his aerosol strokes are regarded as different from those of his peers, as they are as thin as the fine lines achieved only through the use of an airbrush.
