Jackson releases Childhood, a song based on his missing childhood experience. The song, the B-side of Scream, is a solo-piece written, sung and produced by Jackson. The song is used in the soundtrack for Free Willy 2.
My childhood was completely taken away from me. There was no Christmas, no birthdays. It was not a normal childhood, no normal pleasures of childhood. Those were exchanged for hard work, struggle and pain, and eventual material and professional success.
