Michael Jackson's Legacy of Music

There are so many stories out right now on the music Michael Jackson has left behind in the wake of his surprise death last week.

According to the Daily Express, Michael had a catalog of songs that he left in a will to his three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket.

"He has as many as 200 unpublished songs that he planned to leave his children when he died," a source explained. "They can't be touched by the creditors, but they could be worth as much as ($100 million) that will ensure his kids a comfortable existence no matter what happens."

E! Online has gotten a copy of a "lost Michael Jackson" tune, "Shout"; which the singer reportedly recorded in the fall of 2001 at Sony Recording Studios in New York City, but was never released.

"After the recording was done, we could see him dancing to the song," co-writer Cyphe said. "He really was feeling that record, but, unfortunately, the record got rail roaded by politics within the album and the dispute between M.J. and Tommy [Mottola], so it got released as a maxi single to R. Kelly's "Cry." No one's heard "Shout" in the U.S."

Until now.

Finally, there is talk of a recent recorded concert rehearsal that is set to be released on DVD and new video that Michael completed shooting earlier this month.

I have a feeling there will be tons and tons of never-before-seen stuff coming out of the woodwork for years to come.
