Eye opening and great video of history and brings awareness to want to help!
9 July 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

In 1988 as a kid I remember this hit from Michael called "Man in the Mirror" and watching the music video was even more touching as it went along with the lyrics even more. The clips are a montage of the world and it's current problems of poverty, showing homeless people, starving kids, and it showcases the deaths of "MLK" and "JFK", plus it shows images of the "KKK" as it's a cause and shout out for race relations awareness. Still it's message is that of hope and wanting to help for change and need as it starts with yourself and that's the man in the mirror do something about it to change and help society and save souls. Overall great song and excellent music video that goes hand in hand to bring awareness to society showing that love, kindness, and help is needed to save the world.
