The evolution of: The GLOVE 🧤
“After a brainstorming session and a riveting a cappella performance of the Can You Feel It by Michael at the kickoff meeting (featuring some gravity-defying dance moves that, alas, predated moon-walking), I was asked to take Michael on a tour of the production facilities at the company, Robert Abel & Associates.
As we walked through the facility's maze of hallways, camera rooms, and special-effects labs, we encountered the chief film editor, Rick Ross, who was cutting and splicing a TV commercial. Rick was wearing a short white cotton glove on his left hand as he ran the film through his fingers, looking for the yellow grease-pencil marks he had made on various frames of film to be edited. To have a little green box of these disposable gloves sitting on the editing bench was standard practice for film editors in those days.
Michael, who hadn't shown any particular enthusiasm for the tour so far, seemed suddenly transfixed by the glove and politely asked a number of questions about it, concluding with, "Could you spare one?" But of course.
The rest, they say, is HIStory.” -John Kehe
In this clip of the Destiny Tour in New Orleans, Michael is wearing a single white glove on his right hand. This was in 1979 which means he wore it BEFORE the Motown performance. The single glove glistens in the spotlight as the house lights turn down low to bask in the magic
Perhaps this was soon after the discovered the one glove and was trying it on for size and effect
Some say the glove came into being to cover the vitiligo on his hand and seeing someone use a single glove was his epiphany.
As we have witnessed, the fedora and single glove evolved from his early years in the Jackson’s. It is no accident they became his signatures.
