Michael Jackson Guitarist Orianthi 'Humbled' to Rehearse with King of Pop
You'd think that a musician on a satellite tour to promote her new album would gush about the new tracks and tell people how much they'll love the record.
But that wasn't the case for 24-year-old Australian guitarist Orianthi. Instead, she took the opportunity to rave about working alongside Michael Jackson for the concerts that never were.
Orianthi appeared on FOX 2 News Live at 11 on Oct. 27, one day before the Jackson documentary This is It opens nationwide.
Jackson discovered Orianthi, who is named for her Greek grandmother, after watching a YouTube clip of her performance with Carrie Underwood during the 2009 Grammy Awards. Her new album, Believe, is on store shelves now.
