When songwriter Siedah Garrett was a girl, she and her sisters would argue over who was going to marry which member of the Jackson 5. Of course, Michael Jackson was always going to be Siedah's husband.

Years later, Garrett worked with Jackson on the Bad album and co-wrote "Man in the Mirror." The Grammy-winning artist talked to Tell Me More host Michel Martin about trying to keep her composure while talking to the king of pop on the phone, and later while recording a duet with him.

She didn't sing "I just can't stop loving you" to us, but this picture says pretty much the same thing.
