(Newser) – Michael Jackson had a dream that died with him: to become the “Jackson Four” with his three children and include the debut of their first song at his London concerts, the Sun reports. The song, “River Ripple,” includes the lyrics, “Ripples in my River; Flow on, Child, flow free; Love is King, we waded in; You three, you three and me.” It may yet be released to raise money for the children.

“Michael's oldest son Prince sings beautifully and all three children love to dance,” says an insider. “Michael had always wanted his children to be passionate about music and dance. But he wanted them to love music for its own pleasure—not feel forced into performing like he felt he was.”
