Black Fraternity And Sorority Members Allegedly Introduce Michael Jackson To Stepping

Posted: Updated:

Even the legendary King of Pop had to take some dance lessons.

This week, footage surfaced of Michael Jackson allegedly watching members of black Greek-letter organizations introducing him to stepping at Sony Studios in 1993.

In the video's description posted by user Doc Genesis, and self-identified as Vernon Jackson, he writes that the fraternities and sororities involved are Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc.

Although you initially cannot see Jackson on stage, the students can be heard introducing themselves to him in the beginning, and he later comes into the frame at the 3:56 mark.

Along with naming the fraternities in the description, Vernon Jackson adds that the group was working on a project called "Is This Scary," which never actually took place. Judging by classmates' voices cheering him on, it seems Vernon is likely one of the two young men who dance solo for Jackson towards the end of the video.

Although we never get a good look at the late King of Pop's face, you can hear the sound of his voice while he interacts with and thanks the students toward the end of the video.
