Michael Jackson's Band Reunited This Week For TV Tribute
George asks about the last time Bearden saw Jackson. George: "So you were with him every day and you may have been one of the last people to see him that night?"
Bearden: "Well, I was the last person out of our company, out of our cast to see him because we parked in the same area and his car was blocking my car. I couldn't leave and I had to wait for him. We had just finished a great night. It was really late like 12:30. When he came, I was teasing him and he was laughing and we embraced as we always did and Michael Jackson said, 'I love you. God bless you,' as we always did ... I felt great tonight.' I responded, 'Yeah, you looked great and you sounded great. What time are you coming in tomorrow, MJ?' ... 'I'll be in at 2 o'clock. The band sounds great, Bearden!' ' Thank you, MJ, you just really did it tonight,' and he said 'Yeah, I'll see you tomorrow, man'." Bearden says, "We hugged and then I never got a chance to see him."
