Why is Conrad Murray singing to Anderson Cooper?

Conrad Murray started singing Tuesday when CNN’s Anderson Cooper brought up the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit, which started yesterday in Los Angeles. It's the first we're hearing from Murray since his 2011 conviction in Michael Jackson's death.

Murray spoke to Anderson in an exclusive interview from jail. Near the end of their discussion, Murray attempts to describe himself by singing his version of a Nat King Cole song called "The Little Boy that Santa Claus Forgot" to Cooper.

The Jackson family wants billions of dollars from concert promoter AEG for allegedly hiring Murray, which AEG denies.

Murray says he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and is appealing his conviction. 

He also says he would testify for the Jacksons at the wrongful death trial.
