Greetings from a New Generation discovering the New Sensation
Zac was 7 years old when Michael celebrated his 37th birthday on January 22nd, 1997. Over the past 10 years Michael’s music has made a major impact on him and many other young people too young to remember or fully appreciate the sorrow of that year.
He is one of thousands of a whole new generation of fans around the world who remind us all how vibrant, joyous and alive Michael’s large volume of music is. For this birthday greeting I have asked Zac to represent all those younger in years who have written to us at www.michaelhutchence.org expressing their joy at discovering Michael’s music and their admiration for him as they realize how dearly he is held in people’s hearts.
So as a typical member of the new generation discovering the New Sensation, Zac writes:
For countless young people today, it is becoming apparent that Michael is reaching a whole new audience with his inspirational lyrics and energized music. Those who may have been too young to remember Michael while he graced this earth are left with the gift of his music legacy which we are blessed to be left with.
Many young people are getting to know the INXS frontman retrospectively and count themselves as adoring fans of Michael, even though they will never have the opportunity to see him play live or meet him face to face in this life time. It is clear that while Michael the man may have left us behind, Michael the legend will always be in the hearts of those who continue to discover the joys of his music with every passing year.
We salute you Michael Hutchence and say: Thanks for the awesome music and happy birthday, mate!
