What did Michael Jackson’s real voice sound like?
While fans of Michael Jackson are used to his falsetto pitch on songs such as Thriller, the new clip proves that he could sing at a much lower octave.
It isn’t known whether this lower tone was his ‘real’ speaking voice or not, other footage from Michael’s life suggests that he could have used a deeper voice in private, with fans pointing to phone call recordings as proof of the singer’s ‘real voice.’
Why did Michael Jackson speak in a high voice?
Alongside the new footage, some fans have begun to speculate about why Michael Jackson used a higher speaking voice during public appearances.
“I was friends with a lot of singing music majors in college and their professors told them that they should talk in their singing register,” explained one person, suggesting that Michael’s high speaking voice “could be an adaptation to maintain his high falsetto."
Another suggested he may have spoken in a “high voice to preserve his singing voice.”
Other viewers speculated that the video may have been fake though, not willing to believe the singer could have changed his voice so dramatically during the one song.
"Lol, how do you guys even begin to THINK that is real?!?!” replied one person, whilst another exasperated fan replied that “people will believe anything on the internet.”
