BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
Michael teamed up with songwriter Holly Knight in the early 80s. Together they wrote a number of songs, some of which they recorded and released themselves.
They released the song “Obsession” in 1983. The song was featured in the movie A Night in Heaven, and became a minor hit. But it became a much bigger hit when it was covered by the group Animotion two years later reaching #6 on the Billboard singles chart.
