There was a big mystery behind Rockwell when this song was first released; you see he is the son of Motown CEO Berry Gordy that lived with his mother at the time that his demo was submitted to Motown Records. When Berry heard of this guy named Rockwell he was unimpressed with the music that he was hearing until he heard the song with a familiar voice in the background. That familiar voice was Michael Jackson; and Berry still not knowing at this time that the demo of this guy named Rockwell was his own son.
