Tom Bee wrote for Jackson 5

Jackson 5 songwriter sad about Michael's death

By Cris Ornelas[Tom Bee] had a successful recording career of his own, but in the 1970s, he wrote two of The Jackson 5’s hits. The first was We’ve Got Blue Skies.

Bee still remembers the first time he met Michael in a recording studio in LA.

“I had this really nice turquoise ring on my finger and I noticed he kept looking at it and I said do you want to try it on and said sure and so I took it and put it on his finger and it fit and I said you can have it and he thought that was the coolest thing ever."

Then Bee wrote another song for The Jackson 5 for their last Motown album called Joyful Jukebox Music.
