The Woman Behind the Man in the Mirror.

 

Few artists can boast the collaborations that Siedah Garett does. Just the mention of her name reminds us of Michael Jackson. She did not just perform backing vocals on the legend's Bad songs. She sang duets with him such as I just can't stop loving you. She co-wrote songs for him. Two of these are the acclaimed number 1 Man in the mirror and Keep the faith. It is no surprise then when names followed including Quincy Jones, Donna Summer or Madonna. Her backing vocalist CV is impressive. This sometimes overshadows her songwriting. Yet the latter remains undeniable with its contribution to global hits and just for the sheer achievement of getting Quincy Jones' approval before reaching Michael Jackson and getting the nod there too. She follows this with songs for the likes of Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, and Paula Abdul. A lead vocalist, a backing singer and a songwriter, she's a name well recognized but not quite fully appreciated.
