"You Are Not Alone"

An R&B ballad, "You Are Not Alone" was written by American singer R. Kelly for Jackson in response to difficult times in his own personal life. Kelly sent a demo tape to Jackson, who liked the song and decided to produce it with him in his Chicago studio. Jackson's interest in the song was also linked to events in his personal life. The music video, which featured Jackson and his then-wife Lisa Marie Presley, featured scenes of semi-nudity.

"You Are Not Alone" received generally positive reviews and was the recipient of Grammy and American Music Award nominations. It holds a Guinness World Record as the first song to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified platinum by the RIAA. It also topped the charts in Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. It was re-released in 2006 as part of Jackson's box set Visionary: The Video Singles, and re-entered at number 30 in the UK Singles Chart.

"You Are Not Alone" was Jackson's thirteenth and final number-one US single during his lifetime. After his death in June 2009, Kelly paid tribute by including a version of the song on his album Love Letter (2010). In 2011, a clip of the song was remixed with the Jackson song "I Just Can't Stop Loving You"; the final "Immortal Version" was released on the Immortal album.

"You Are Not Alone" is a pop and R&B ballad about love and isolation. The song was written by R. Kelly and produced by Kelly and Jackson. Kelly wrote the song after losing close people in his life. Kelly was delighted to be able to work with his idol, explaining "I was psyched ... I feel I could have done his whole album. Not being selfish. I was just that geeked about it. It was an experience out of this world ... It's amazing to know that five years ago I was writing songs in a basement in the ghetto and now I'm writing for Michael Jackson ... I'd be a fool not to say it's a dream come true." Jackson contacted Kelly to see if he had any material available. Kelly forwarded a tape recording of the song and Jackson then agreed to work with Kelly on the piece. On the tape sent to Jackson, Kelly sung "You Are Not Alone" mimicking Jackson's vocal style, explaining, "I think I am him. I become him. I want him to feel that as well." Jackson found the interpretation amusing. They spent the last week of November 1994 together in the studio working on the track.

Jackson explained that he instantly liked the song, but listened to it twice before making his final decision. Although the song was written by Kelly, Jackson was adamant that the production should be a collaborative effort among the two musicians. The tape sent to him had no harmony or modulations, so Jackson added a choir in the final portion and added a sense of climax and structure to the final piece. The song is written in the key of B major. The song has a tempo of 60 beats per minute, making it one of Jackson's slowest songs.

In 1993, Edward and Daniel van Passel wrote the score to a song titled "If We Can Start All Over". It was registered with the Belgian Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers (SABAM) that year. The score has never been commercially released, and can only be found as sheet music, which does not contain information about the timbre, rhythm or harmony.

When "You Are Not Alone" became a worldwide success, the van Passel brothers approached SABAM saying it was similar to their song. The internal committee noted similarities between the melodies and recommended pursuing a lawsuit against Kelly and Zomba Record Holding Holland BV. The brothers applied to the Court of Leuven for an injunction on October 18, 1995. The Belgian Court rejected the claim of plagiarism on January 20, 2003, finding that the 43.46% similarity between the two melodies was a coincidence. The van Passel brothers submitted an appeal.

On September 4, 2007, the Court of Appeal in Brussels reversed the 2003 ruling, based on the fact that Kelly's earliest evidence of writing "You Are Noght Alone" was August 1995, 21 months after the brothers had registered their score for "If We Can Start All Over". The court concluded that it was possible that Kelly had accessed the score and developed this into "You Are Not Alone". Kelly maintains that he never met or heard of the van Passel brothers. The court also stated that the van Passel brothers "did not create their work merely in order to register it with SABAM and put it in a drawer, but at least informed third parties of the existence of their composition".

Belgium maintains a ban on all radio and television broadcasts of the "You Are Not Alone" song and music video. Vendors found with copies face fines of €1000 for each copy of the song. The van Passel brothers have gained recognition as co-writers of the melody for "You Are Not Alone" in Belgium.

'You Are Not Alone' received positive views from music critics. In more recent years, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic expressed the opinion that it was amongst some of the best songs Jackson ever released, calling the song seductive. James Masterton said in his weekly UK chart commentary in Dotmusic, that it "probably ranks as one of the most beautiful songs Michael Jackson has ever recorded". Pan-European magazine Music & Media wrote, "A far cry from Scream, Jackson undergoes a gigantic moodswing here. Sad as he is, the vibrato in his vocals perfectly complements the moody ballad". A reviewer from Music Week rated it five out of five, adding, "Barely a yelp or gulp to be had on this dead simple R Kelly-penned and produced ballad. Not the strongest slowie on the album but a lot of wayward fans will be hankering after some no-frills old style Jackson. A biggie." The R&B critic and journalist Nelson George described the song as lovely and supple. Jon Pareles of The New York Times said that it was the only conventional love song on the new material on HIStory. He compared it to Mariah Carey's song "Hero" and said it "sounds like a surefire hit". James Hunter of Rolling Stone noted that, "the excellent current single 'Scream' or the first-rate R&B ballad 'You Are Not Alone' – manage to link the incidents of Jackson's recent past to universal concepts, like injustice or isolation. When he bases his music in the bluntness of hip-hop, Jackson sketches funky scenarios denouncing greed, blanket unreliability and false accusation".

Writer and journalist J. Randy Taraborrelli wrote of the song in 2004, "[it] remains among Michael's best songs ... On listening to 'You Are Not Alone', one wonders how many times Michael tried to tell himself, during his most desperate and anguished times, that he did have support in his life, from a higher power, or even friends and family, whether he actually believed it or not". Fred Shuster of the Daily News of Los Angeles described it as the best song on the album. Conversely, while Steve Holsey of Michigan Chronicle gave the album a positive review, he described the song as the worst on the album, calling the Kelly penned lyrics "trite" and below the standard set by Jackson's own lyrical skills. Robert Christgau of Blender would later call it "quietly yucky" while pop music critic Bill Wyman of New York called it "drony and unpleasant." "You Are Not Alone" received an American Music Award nomination and a Grammy nomination both for "Best Pop Vocal Performance".

Commercially, "You Are Not Alone" remains one of Jackson's best selling singles and it is also his 13th and final number one song. It holds the Guinness World Record for the first song ever to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was also Jackson's last number one single on the chart. It debuted at number one with first week sales of 120,000 copies. The song was certified platinum by the RIAA and sold one million copies domestically. It broke the record set by his previous double A-side single "Scream" and "Childhood," which was the first song in the 37-year history of Billboard to debut at number five—where it peaked. It peaked at number one in the UK after a debut at number three in the prior week. The song also reached number one in Wallonia, France, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland. In Canada it peaked at number two. It became a top ten hit in every major market.

Presley leans down towards her husband in the temple scene of the music video.

The music video was directed by Wayne Isham on July 12, 1995, and begins with a large number of paparazzi taking photographs of Jackson. The plot then centers around two locations: a temple where Jackson appears in an affectionate semi-nude scene with his then-wife, Lisa Marie Presley, and a theater where Jackson performs the song to an empty hall. Jackson also appears alone in other locations such as deserts and along tide pools. The slightly extended version that appeared on HIStory on Film, Volume II was notable for scenes where special effects were used to give Jackson white, feathery, almost angelic wings. Several of these scenes included Jackson's side having been pierced by an arrow. The other version of the video is included on Number Ones and Michael Jackson's Vision. The temple scenes were a homage to Maxfield Parrish's 1922 painting Daybreak. The theater scenes were filmed at the Pantages Theatre, in Los Angeles.

The video for "You Are Not Alone" was later published on Jackson's official YouTube channel in October 2009. It has amassed more than 277 million views as of September 2021.

Jackson first performed "You Are Not Alone" at the 1995 Soul Train Music Awards, and also at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards. At the latter awards ceremony, the song was performed without the second verse. Jackson then performed the song at the Royal Brunei concert in 1996 where it was performed as a complete song. Jackson also performed it during the HIStory World Tour as a complete song, during which one girl was allowed to dance with him on stage, similar to the Soul Train Music Awards performance. Jackson's next performance of "You Are Not Alone" was at the MJ & Friends concert in Seoul on June 25, 1999; this also turned out to be the song's last performance by Jackson himself, occurring ten years to the day of his death. The song was performed without the second verse, similar to the "1995 MTV Awards" performance. The song was also due to be performed at the This Is It concert series, however the shows were cancelled due to his death.

Diana Ross recorded a version of this song on her international-only released album, Voice of Love produced by Nick Martinelli. Ross would also close her successful 2010–12 More Today Than Yesterday: The Greatest Hits Tour with this song as a tribute to Jackson.

The finalists premiered the song live on the November 15 edition of the programme; the single was available for digital download that day and a physical release followed the day after. The release of the song follows a similar occurrence a year earlier, when the final twelve acts from the fifth series released a cover version of Mariah Carey's "Hero" in aid of Help for Heroes and raised over £1 million. It has been confirmed to have sold over 400,000 copies, therefore achieving a Gold single certification.

Music video

The video is very similar to the video of the cover version of the charity single of the year before.

Photos and video footage of the finalists at the Great Ormond Street Hospital are shown throughout the video.

video You Are Not Alone on YouTubeAudio sample source source track You Are Not Alone filehelp An R amp B ballad You Are Not Alone was written by American singer R Kelly for Jackson in response to difficult times in his own personal life Kelly sent a demo tape to Jackson who liked the song and decided to produce it with him in his Chicago studio Jackson s interest in the song was also linked to

12 R Kelly version 12 1 Track listing 13 References 13 1 Bibliography 14 External linksProduction and composition Edit You Are Not Alone is a pop and R amp B ballad about love and isolation 3 4 5 The song was written by R Kelly and produced by Kelly and Jackson 4 Kelly wrote the song after losing close people in his life 6 Kelly was delighted to be able to work with his idol explaining I was psyched I feel I could have done his whole album Not being selfish I was just that geeked about it It was an experience out of this world It s amazing to know that five years ago I was writing songs in a basement in the ghetto and now I m writing for Michael Jackson I d be a fool not to say it s a dream come true 7 Jackson contacted Kelly to see if he had any material available Kelly forwarded a tape recording of the song and Jackson then agreed to work with Kelly on the piece 7 On the tape sent to Jackson Kelly sung You Are Not Alone mimicking Jackson s vocal style explaining I think I am him I become him I want him to feel that as well Jackson found the interpretation amusing 8 They spent the last week of November 1994 together in the studio working on the track 7 Jackson explained that he instantly liked the song but listened to it twice before making his final decision Although the song was written by Kelly Jackson was adamant that the production should be a collaborative effort among the two musicians 6 The tape sent to him had no harmony or modulations so Jackson added a choir in the final portion and added a sense of climax and structure to the final piece 9 The song is written in the key of B major The song has a tempo of 60 beats per minute making it one of Jackson s slowest songs 10 Plagiarism EditIn 1993 Edward and Daniel van Passel wrote the score to a song titled If We Can Start All Over It was registered with the Belgian Society of Authors Composers and Publishers SABAM that year The score has never been commercially released and can only be found as sheet music which does not contain information about the timbre rhythm or harmony 11 When You Are Not Alone became a worldwide success the van Passel brothers approached SABAM saying it was similar to their song The internal committee noted similarities between the melodies and recommended pursuing a lawsuit against Kelly and Zomba Record Holding Holland BV The brothers applied to the Court of Leuven for an injunction on October 18 1995 11 The Belgian Court rejected the claim of plagiarism on January 20 2003 finding that the 43 46 similarity between the two melodies was a coincidence The van Passel brothers submitted an appeal 11 On September 4 2007 the Court of Appeal in Brussels reversed the 2003 ruling based on the fact that Kelly s earliest evidence of writing You Are Noght Alone was August 1995 21 months after the brothers had registered their score for If We Can Start All Over The court concluded that it was possible that Kelly had accessed the score and developed this into You Are Not Alone Kelly maintains that he never met or heard of the van Passel brothers The court also stated that the van Passel brothers did not create their work merely in order to register it with SABAM and put it in a drawer but at least informed third parties of the existence of their composition 11 Belgium maintains a ban on all radio and television broadcasts of the You Are Not Alone song and music video Vendors found with copies face fines of 1000 for each copy of the song The van Passel brothers have gained recognition as co writers of the melody for You Are Not Alone in Belgium 11 Critical reaction Edit You Are Not Alone received positive views from music critics In more recent years Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic expressed the opinion that it was amongst some of the best songs Jackson ever released calling the song seductive 12 James Masterton said in his weekly UK chart commentary in Dotmusic that it probably ranks as one of the most beautiful songs Michael Jackson has ever recorded 13 Pan European magazine Music amp Media wrote A far cry from Scream Jackson undergoes a gigantic moodswing here Sad as he is the vibrato in his vocals perfectly complements the moody ballad 14 A reviewer from Music Week rated it five out of five adding Barely a yelp or gulp to be had on this dead simple R Kelly penned and produced ballad Not the strongest slowie on the album but a lot of wayward fans will be hankering after some no frills old style Jackson A biggie 15 The R amp B critic and journalist Nelson George described the song as lovely and supple 16 Jon Pareles of The New York Times said that it was the only conventional love song on the new material on HIStory He compared it to Mariah Carey s song Hero and said it sounds like a surefire hit 4 James Hunter of Rolling Stone noted that the excellent current single Scream or the first rate R amp B ballad You Are Not Alone manage to link the incidents of Jackson s recent past to universal concepts like injustice or isolation When he bases his music in the bluntness of hip hop Jackson sketches funky scenarios denouncing greed blanket unreliability and false accusation 5 Writer and journalist J Randy Taraborrelli wrote of the song in 2004 it remains among Michael s best songs On listening to You Are Not Alone one wonders how many times Michael tried to tell himself during his most desperate and anguished times that he did have support in his life from a higher power or even friends and family whether he actually believed it or not 17 Fred Shuster of the Daily News of Los Angeles described it as the best song on the album 18 Conversely while Steve Holsey of Michigan Chronicle gave the album a positive review he described the song as the worst on the album calling the Kelly penned lyrics trite and below the standard set by Jackson s own lyrical skills 19 Robert Christgau of Blender would later call it quietly yucky 20 while pop music critic Bill Wyman of New York called it drony and unpleasant 21 You Are Not Alone received an American Music Award nomination and a Grammy nomination both for Best Pop Vocal Performance 22 23 Chart performance EditCommercially You Are Not Alone remains one of Jackson s best selling singles and it is also his 13th and final number one song It holds the Guinness World Record for the first song ever to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart 24 It was also Jackson s last number one single on the chart It debuted at number one with first week sales of 120 000 copies The song was certified platinum by the RIAA and sold one million copies domestically 25 26 27 It broke the record set by his previous double A side single Scream and Childhood which was the first song in the 37 year history of Billboard to debut at number five where it peaked 26 It peaked at number one in the UK after a debut at number three in the prior week 26 28 The song also reached number one in Wallonia France New Zealand Spain and Switzerland In Canada it peaked at number two 29 It became a top ten hit in every major market 26 29 Music video Edit Presley leans down towards her husband in the temple scene of the music video The music video was directed by Wayne Isham on July 12 1995 and begins with a large number of paparazzi taking photographs of Jackson The plot then centers around two locations a temple where Jackson appears in an affectionate semi nude scene with his then wife Lisa Marie Presley and a theater where Jackson performs the song to an empty hall Jackson also appears alone in other locations such as deserts and along tide pools The slightly extended version that appeared on HIStory on Film Volume II was notable for scenes where special effects were used to give Jackson white feathery almost angelic wings Several of these scenes included Jackson s side having been pierced by an arrow The other version of the video is included on Number Ones and Michael Jackson s Vision The temple scenes were a homage to Maxfield Parrish s 1922 painting Daybreak 30 The theater scenes were filmed at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles The video for You Are Not Alone was later published on Jackson s official YouTube channel in October 2009 It has amassed more than 277 million views as of September 2021 31 Live performances EditJackson first performed You Are Not Alone at the 1995 Soul Train Music Awards and also at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards At the latter awards ceremony the song was performed without the second verse Jackson then performed the song at the Royal Brunei concert in 1996 where it was performed as a complete song Jackson also performed it during the HIStory World Tour as a complete song during which one girl was allowed to dance with him on stage similar to the Soul Train Music Awards performance Jackson s next performance of You Are Not Alone was at the MJ amp Friends concert in Seoul on June 25 1999 this also turned out to be the song s last performance by Jackson himself occurring ten years to the day of his death The song was performed without the second verse similar to the 1995 MTV Awards performance The song was also due to be performed at the This Is It concert series however the shows were cancelled due to his death Diana Ross recorded a version of this song on her international only released album Voice of Love produced by Nick Martinelli Ross would also close her successful 2010 12 More Today Than Yesterday The Greatest Hits Tour with this song as a tribute to Jackson Track listings EditCD single You Are Not Alone 4 54 Scream Louder Flyte Tyme Remix
