We are all going to see some of the Invincible recording with Mike in the studio. Rodney has taped much and he is going to release it. So maybe we see Mike with Carlos Santana record Whatever Happens.
That's cool, but I'm not really that interested in watching 'Invincible' songs. Anyway Rodney had nothing to do with "Whatever Happens", so why would he have footage of that?

RJ was a co producer for the entire album. He may have not produced Whatever Happens, but he had access to sit in the recording of it

I would love to see him record SIM and Earth Song. The more I listen to the acapella versions of his songs that I have, the more and more I want to see footage of him recording. I can't believe there is virtually ZERO footage of that! I hope something gets released sometime in the future!

startin' somethin' without a doubt! especially when it got to the chant at the end. the energy must have been bouncing off the walls! I wonder how many takes it took, and how the song really ended beyond the fade out?

That video is misleading because Michael Jackson does not actually record ‘They Don't Care About Us’ in that.

That video was simply shot as some sort of a promo video that aired in an American big TV station back then.

Besides, Michael Jackson never recorded any song (for any of his albums) while smashing things in the studio.

Because Michael Jackson asked Rodney Jerkins to document everything with his video cameras, irrespective of the songs.

"...I'll just say Michael asked me to document everything. And I did…" (Rodney Jerkins)

Apparently, this means that Rodney Jerkins documented everything, even sessions from songs (of that album) that he did not produce or co-produce.

For me it woyld either have to be during the Motown days just to look at an old school recording studio. The other session would have to be the HIStory one, especially Scream just to see him and Janet working in the studio together.

I think They Don't Care About Us could have been amazing.

Earth Song too. - Stranger in Moscoc, Childhood, Money and Morphine.
