During opening statements Tuesday in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, the prosecution played a shocking voice recording made by Murray of Michael Jackson in which the superstar singer was heard slowly slurring his words and lethargically talking about his tour.

The voice recording, made with Dr. Murray’s iPhone on May 10, 2009, was presented by prosecutor David Walgren to the jury in the Los Angeles courtroom. He played only a clip of the recording, saying that the entire tape will be played during the trial and said that it showed what Dr. Murray “is doing to Michael Jackson.”

It’s Amazing. He’s the greatest entertainer in the world.”  I’m taking that money, a million children, children’s hospital, the biggest in the world, Michael Jackson’s Children’s Hospital.”
