Michael Jackson performed this song only once. The occasion was the «Sammy Davis Jr.’s 60th Stage Anniversary TV Special». The song was written especially for the broadcast which was aired on February the 4th in 1990. Sammy Davis Jr. died only three months later: on Mai, the 16th in 1990 in Beverly Hills. It was lung cancer that drove him away. He surely was one of the greatest entertainers ever.
