The song is 'crisper', theres a little more instramental strings.. More ad libs, and a beautiful ending..
I think MJ was so proud of this track (as one of Tito's brothers said) is because of it's universal message. We all know how deep Mike felt about our world and its current state of mind. His biggest wish is to see the world unite in some form. And simply holding the person's hand next to you is a start.
It's a song everyone can enjoy, hence its repetitiveness. I don't think that's a bad, or "dry" thing at all! It gives every ear a chance to enjoy it. Now, us more "musically" inclined ears can enjoy it too if we just see the joy of simplicity in it. It's really a great song if you let it sink in. Who cares if Akon is in it too. I listen to it as just another voice of praise.
