June 25 marked the sixth anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson — who died in 2009 at age 50 — and the tributes have been pouring in, many of them, of course, musical.
Among them is a tribute from a group of students from the KM Music Conservatory in Chennai, India.
This isn’t the first time the music academy, founded by Oscar winner A.R. Rahman, has paid tribute to Jackson — they also covered another of his immortal songs “Slave to the Rhythm” on his birthday last year.
This year, their rendition of Jackson’s much loved song “Xscape” sees their Indian classical style blend seamlessly with the King of Pop’s trademark rendition (and dance moves). Enjoy.
