The prosecution played the complete voice recording made by Dr. Conrad Murray of Michael Jackson in court on Wednesday and his slurring was almost incoherent as he talked about his dreams for his future, which was cut short upon his tragic death on June 25, 2009.

Dr. Murray made the voice recording with his iPhone on May 10, 2009 and jurors were given a printed transcript of the conversation between Jackson and his doctor and the heartbreaking recording has the King of Pop talking about his terrible childhood, saying “I had no childhood.”

The transcript of the recording played in court:

Michael Jackson: Elvis didn’t do it.  Beatles didn’t do it.  We have to be phenomenal.  When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, ‘I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life.  Go. Go. I’ve never seen nothing like this.  Go. 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.  Gonna have a movie theater, game room.  Children are depressed.  The – in these hospitals, no game room, no movie theater.  They’re sick because they’re depressed.  Their mind is depressing them.  I want to give them that.  I care about them, them angels.  God wants me to do it.  God wants me to do it.  I’m gonna do it, Conrad.

Conrad Murray: I know you would.

MJ: Don’t have enough hope, no more hope.  That’s the next generation that’s gonna save our planet – starting with – we’ll talk about it.  United States, Europe, Prague, my babies.  They walk around with no mother.  They drop them off, they leave – a psychological degradation of that.  They reach out to me – please take me with you.

CM: Mmmm-mmm.

MJ: I want to do that for them.

CM: Mmmm-mmm.

MJ: I’m gonna do that for them. They will be remembered more than my performances.  My performances will be up there helping my children and always be my dream.  I love them. I love them because I didn’t have a childhood.  I had no childhood. I feel their pain. I feel their hurt.  I can deal with it.  Heal the World, We Are the World, Will You Be There, The Lost Children.  These are the songs I’ve written because I hurt, you know I hurt.

13 seconds silence

CM: You ok?

8 seconds silence

MJ: I am asleep.

Michael’s brother Jermaine wiped tears away as the recording was played in court.
