“I had this burning desire to let people know what I was thinking. I mean, what the hell is the Mideast all about? Is it religion? I don’t think so. I wanted to create something you can dance around and see the oneness there. We’re all connected and there’s nothing you can do about it!” (Laughs).
We wanted to know even more about Mickey so High Heels reached out to him.

MICKEY: Yes . It felt as though it was already a part of me
HIGH HEELS: What is a typical day for Mickey? How much time is spent on music?
MICKEY: If I’m not writing or preforming I’m thinking about it
HIGH HEELS: What do you think people should learn from the Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Matt Lauer etc…accusations? MICKEY: It’s knowing that this life experience is not about taking it’s about giving It’s about compassion and knowing that all of humanity is connected

And with more to say about “Celebrate the Joy”…..in Mickey’s words:
“I’m in an odd place with this,” he says. “It’s not typical. Either you’re going to like it or you’re not. I’m trying to stick it where it’s supposed to go. A blog for the United Nations picked it up, also a senior citizens blog. It’s a thoughtful song as well as a party song.
“It’s what has to be said.”
More about Mickey: Celine Dion, Frankie Beverly & Maze and the Muppets are just three artists or groups that have recorded music composed by Mickey Carroll.
