Michael Jackson's Kid

They FAKED My Dad's Voice

on 'Michael' Album

2/29/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris made a bombshell announcement to friends ... telling them the MJ album released in the wake of the singer's death did NOT contain MJ's actual voice ... it was an imposter.

TMZ has learned ... the announcement was made during an online video chat with several friends in 2010 ... just before the "Michael" album was released, which contains several previously unreleased tracks allegedly performed by Michael Jackson. 

The video chat was recorded ... and Paris joked about the footage eventually "leaking" to the Internet.

Paris had made the announcement in the midst of rumors that MJ's parts on the "Michael" album were REALLY performed by an MJ sound-alike named Jason Malachi ... but both Jason and Sony denied the allegations.

During the video chat, Paris played one of the songs from the album, "Hold My Hand" ... and one of her friends asks why the singer doesn't sound like MJ. 

Paris replied, "It's NOT him ... the whole album isn't even him!! Go online ... go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. That's him!!"

She continues, "I should know if it's him or not because he would sing to me all the time."

TMZ has learned a recording of Paris' video message is being shopped to various media outlets ... and we're told "Offers are on the table."

'Hold My Hand' and 'Hollywood Tonight' are authentic.

The Jason Malachi fakes are 'Breaking News,' 'Keep Your Head Up' and 'Monster.' They were fabricated by Angelikson Productions in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, sometime within the first nine months succeeding Michael Jackson's death. The songs were then sold to Sony Music in May of 2010 for a large sum of money.

I also notice that some of the songs are not Michael's voice but some of the songs I can tell that it's Michael's. I don't know what to believe right now. Prejudice is ignorance!

"Hold My Hand" is Pure Michael Jackson Voice.

OK TMZ either you have a typo in there that should read 2009 instead of 2008 ... or this story makes no sense. Michael's death and the LP "Michael" happened after 2008. Yes, there are parts of the LP that clearly seem NOT Michael and more Michaelesque but unless they were planning the rue earlier than his death ... then again, maybe that is the point. However, why would Michael's daughter know of this a year before his death??

"Hold My Hand" and "Hollywood Tonight" are authentic.

"Breaking News," "Keep Your Head Up" and "Monster" are the Jason Malachi bootlegs.

Eddie Cascio and James Porte co-wrote the songs, and it's believed they contacted Jason Malachi to secretly record the vocal tracks. Malachi resides in Maryland, roughly four hours away from Cascio and Porte's basement studio.

Apparently Angelikson Productions hasn't been able to provide any proof whatsoever that the songs are genuine. All the original demo tapes -- which would have normally contained audio of MJ directing, chatting, laughing, humming, mumbling, etc. -- have mysteriously disappeared. Furthermore, there aren't any handwritten lyrics or notes left behind by MJ, nor are there any photos or videos of him at Eddie Cascio's homemade studio. On top of all that, it appears that MJ never actually mentioned to anyone that he recorded these suspicious tracks.

I would think that if, in 2008,someone was impersonating MJ voice on some songs...his daughter wouldn't need to be chatting about it..
I would think Michael Jackson would have had something to say about it..
But anything people say about Michael Jackson gets people attn..
People cant get enough of MJ these days..
