The gospel-flavored track written & produced by Michael, became the 7th song to reach the top 40 from his Dangerous album. Featured in the film Free Willy (also, on the accompanying soundtrack album), Will You Be There gave Michael his first Top 10 single on the Hot 100 in four attempts; it peaked at #7. The song was truly a whale of a hit: doubling as the theme to the film Free Willy, it won the MTV Movie Award for Best Song in a Movie in 1994. It was also included in the album All Time Greatest Movie Songs released by Sony in 1999. The single sold over 500,000 copies in U.S. & 10,530,000 copies worldwide, later being certified Gold by RIAA.
Michael wrote Will You Be There while sitting in the Giving tree at his Neverland Ranch.
The song includes a classical prelude & chorus featuring the Cleveland Orchestra performing a portion of Beethoven's ninth symphony; followed by a chorale interlude arranged by Andrae and Sandra Crouch.
Like The River Jordan
And I Will Then Say To Thee
You Are My Friend
Like You Are My Brother
Love Me Like A Mother
Will You Be There?
Tell Me Will You Hold Me
When Wrong, Will You Scold Me
When Lost Will You Find Me?
But They Told Me
A Man Should Be Faithful
And Walk When Not Able
And Fight Till The End
But I’m Only Human
Everyone’s Taking Control Of Me
Seems That The World’s
Got A Role For Me
I’m So Confused
Will You Show To Me
You’ll Be There For Me
And Care Enough To Bear Me
