Jamie Foxx Stole Song ( Heaven ) He Dedicated To His Daughter; Being Sued For $75 Mil
 

 
According to the World Entertainment News Network, Jamie Foxx is being sued for allegedly stealing a country singer's heavenly song and making it his own. Singer/songwriter Michael A. Johnson claims Foxx's ballad 'Heaven', which the Oscar winner sang on the Oprah show earlier this year (06), is a reworking of his copyrighted tune 'One of God's Angels Went AWOL'. In his handwritten court papers, filed in Detroit, Michigan, Johnson claims he copyrighted the tune before sending it round to record companies, including Foxx's J Records. The country and western songwriter accuses Foxx of taking his song, changing the lyrics and title and re-recording it as his own ballad. Foxx' 'Heaven' from his platinum album 'Unpredictable' is a tune he wrote for his 11-year-old daughter Corrine while he waited nervously for her birth. The Ray star was so anxious about the health of his unborn baby, he sat down and wrote 'Heaven' to calm his nerves. He says, "The song is basically saying that there was an angel up in heaven who was this little girl angel and it was God's favorite angel. She would always look at the plight of this couple who weren't able to have a kid, so, one day when God was having a role call, she didn't answer. She had snuck off and blessed them with a child."

But Johnson could care less. He fumes, "I feel abused and outraged to think that someone of Jamie Foxx's stature would stoop to steal my song. I saw him singing my song on Oprah and I felt so cheated." And the songwriter is so convinced he'll win his court battle with Foxx, he hasn't even hired an attorney. He adds, "I'm suing him on my own. I don't need an attorney. As soon as the court hears my song, which I copyrighted, they'll rule in my favor." Johnson is asking for $15 million. Representatives for Foxx could not be reached as WENN went to press.

There is always drama over songs, where the originals are from etc...Hopefully if this is all true J Foxx will get it all sorted out. I'm sure he has 15 mill!!!

I wouldn't be too sure about that. his album didn't do THAT good, and his tv show didn't either.

smh...you know there are too many people in the world for anything to be completely original...co-incidences happen and some people do have similar thoughts...

in his statement, he says that jamie stole his song, then changed the lyrics and title...well..wouldn't that mean that jamie wrote his own song?

people draw ideas from other people..it's been like that forever...where do you think tv execs get ideas for sitcoms...from other people..people submit their ideas everyday and companies change their ideas to fit their needs...people kil me trying to leech off of other people's success. we just can't be happy with how well people do anymore, we always gotta put our hand in their pockets....

i also believe that the reason he's doing it without a lawyer is because he couldn't find one that would take his case. i believe his claim is bogus.

His album sold 1.2 mill which is hard to do today. His show went like 5 seasons (currently getting rerun money) and actually had a ending rather than getting cancelled. I'd say that's good, don't forget his movies and stand ups.
