Thanks for posting this. What a great video!

If anyone finds a photo or video with Michael Jackson and the VIP-50 I would be forever grateful.

Which mic is Ray Charles singing into here?

That, Sir, is a Milab VIP-50, a favorite choice of the late Ray Charles. Ray called this microphone "The President". I guess he had his reasons!

I own three of them.
