Ever since they met at the 1984 Olympic trials, Charles says he's witnessed fans go crazy when they meet Michael.
As an example, Charles mentions how, when Michael first quit basketball and tried out for baseball, they would often hang out together in Arizona. "He was in Phoenix and we would go out, we'd go play pool all the time," Charles says. "We would rope off an area and there would be 100 people just standing behind the rope just staring at him all night. It was unbelievable. … They'd stand there for two hours straight."
Charles says he knows the origins of Michael's aura. "He's got great charisma. He always dresses fantastic. He has what I call 'It.'"
