Norah Payne who co-wrote Michael Jackson’s “You Rock My World” alongside Jackson himself, Rodney Jerkins, Fred Jerkins III and LaShawn Daniels disappeared on Saturday, October 7. The lead single on his 10th album, Invincible (2001), “You Rock My World” was commercially successful worldwide and peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Jackson’s first top ten song in the United States in over six years.

She is alive and well.

Her brother, Julian Payne writes on Facebook:
