Michael Jackson's Kid

They FAKED My Dad's Voice

on 'Michael' Album

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."

People JUST NOW figured this out?! I could have told you none of that wasn't Michael right when it came out. Sony is the greediest corporation on the planet. First capitalizing off of Michael, then Whitney. Nothing like "helping" a once-super-icon singer into an early grave to relaunch their career and make sales go through the roof, lining the pockets of a dying corporate machine in the meantime. Think about it. This is nothing new.

Michael's Guardian Angel    

I've been following this story from day one, back on November 8, 2010, when the song "Breaking News" was streamed online and I want to clear something up. There are 10 songs on that album but the authenticity of 7 of them are not being questioned by Michael's fans or family members. The 3 VERY questionable songs are "Breaking News", "Keep Your Head Up" and "Monster" which were all produced by Eddie Cascio and James Porte, two complete no names that supposedly recorded 12 songs with Michael in a "basement studio" in Cascio's home over the course of 3-4 months.

Those that are familiar with Michael's recording procedures, know that it's not normal at all for him to record that many songs and consider them finished songs in such a short amount of time. As I stated above, 3 of their songs made the cut for tha "Michael" album and I've heard the remaining 9 Cascio songs and they're clearly NOT sang by Michael. The vibrato is WAY off, the texture of the vocals are different, I could go on and on about why these vocals don't match Michael's vocals. I'm not sure if Paris really did question the vocals on "Hold My Hand" but that song is definitely authentic because a demo of it leaked online in 2008 while Michael was alive and he didn't deny that it was his vocals on that song. The Cascio songs are 100% FAKE except for select snippets of Michael's vocals and adlibs that were used from older songs.

This isn't a breaking story. My god TMZ wake up. Everyone bashing on a 13 yr old is discusting.How many of you talk about your own kid or family memeber in that way. There has always been a question of how much is really MJ on the some of the tracks. Why bring this to light now? Calling themselves Paris' friends tho? If such tape does exisit i feel bad for her thinking she was talking to her friends and yet, learning as her father did true friends are rare.! Keep your head up high Paris !!!

Paris is just a little girl influenced by what is happening around her. She WAS--notice the past tense-- repeating what she heard her uncles saying. Does any one know what she thinks NOW that SONY verified that it WAS Michael's voice?
