Dr. Conrad Murray, the man serving four years for involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s death, maintained his innocence and broke into song during an interview with Anderson Cooper on Tuesday.
Murray said when his sentence is up, he wants to “motivate people and continue to do selfless acts,” while speaking by phone on Anderson 360. He then began singing “The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot,” a song popularized by Nat King Cole. Murray said the song captured his own life story.
“I had no Christmases, I had no toys, I had nothing,” Murray told Cooper. “But as I grew up my heart has been whole. My heart says to help. And all I do is to give.”
Murray says he is remorseful for Michael Jackson’s death and maintains that they were close.
“I am extremely sorry that Michael has passed on. It’s a tremendous loss for me. It’s a burden I’ve been carrying for the longest while,” he said. “It’s a burden I will carry for an indefinite period of time.”
