And while Michael had nothing but praise for the 11-time Grammy winner, he shared that his favorite performance was actually that of John David’s.
“You know, I was familiar with everyone else, but I wasn’t familiar with John David,” he explained. “John David’s ability to just be open to whatever was happening and just do it instantly no matter what was asked of him—and also not just take the order, but make it his own was very impressive.”
Michael added, “He’s also just one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. He really made a big impression on me.”
