‎"FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR 'ALL' . . . . ." My Message to ALL Michael Jacksons Fans, and My Friends, Fans, Family and Associates Here on My Facebook pages. May you 'ALL' Realize 'How Blessed We Are', . . . . No Matter 'What' we're are going through in Life's Experiences and Challenges. Because if we 'ARE' going through them, . . . that means, . . . . . "WE ARE 'STILL ALIVE' in this plain of Life, to be able to face it or them. And 'THAT' means, . . . . that as long we 'Are Alive', . . . . "We STILL Have a Chance", to Heal, Make a Change in Whatever is of issue, Improve Our Situations, Correct a Wrong, Continue What's 'Right', Show More Love, Diminish Hate, Repair A Broken Relationship, Continue a 'Working One', and 'Most Of All', . . . . . REFOCUS our Efforts, . . . . to 'SURVIVE'..... So in light of these Vital Realizations, . . . . I wish to reflect my Christmas Message to You, on the following realities and observations. "Food For Thought For ALL"._ Merry Christmas..... .......“Enjoy the Christmas Holidays this and every year with this message in heart and mind........_ "The First Gift of Christmas was a CHILD Who was given unto me and you. Twas GOD wishing you A ‘Happy Holiday’ of love and giving. The Baby JESUS, given by GOD, . . . to bless the world of man with forgiveness, love and compassion. There Would Be No precious holiday called Christmas, were it not for this act of kindness, caring and generosity from GOD, through his SON. So Never Forget, . . . . Never let this holiday go unappreciated. 'The Lamb' has been sacrificed, that You/We may find and have salvation at the end of your lives. It was the LORD’s wish. The LORD’S sacrifice for you and yours . . . . 'Ours'..... And now, all these great many years later, we’ve come to know and benefit from another of HIS gifts and demonstrations of the measure of HIS love. An example of caring, sharing and the potential of the greatness of a man’s capabilities. HE sent us, MICHAEL!!!. As he had sent others before him, to demonstrate by example how a man shall live and BE an example. Not so much as for his greatness of multitudes of talents and creative gifts, but more for his generosity to others outside of his known family. Strangers to some, but family to Michael. In his heart, in his mind, . . . giving from his soul, freely. By his own internal design, . . . his humility off stage, coinciding with and in sharp contrast to his strength, power and aggressiveness on stage. The alter egos of both qualities of man, yet fortified by GOD. Like Moses, Abraham, Joshua, and King David. All great men. All anointed and appointed by GOD. For greatness comes 'Not' from man, but by way of GOD. He, Michael, may not have been perfect in all things and ways, . . . . but, neither were any of the aforementioned. For they were All Still "Men Of Man". Imperfect, in mans’ ways. For only GOD, and thus JESUS CHRIST were considered perfect....... We can all be ever thankful for a boy to have become a man, . . . yet shown as a "Man-Child" named Michael Jackson. To have been entrusted to our lifetime, that we may come to witness his greatness in measure and magnitude. His kindness, his generosity, his measure of humility and regard for others. To "Beacon The Light" towards the way we should love, live and care for and to one another....... May you have a Blessed Christmas One And All my Beloved Friends. And please remember, . . . . WHY it is called 'CHRISTMAS'. For it is the 'Christ', that makes it Christmas and 'HIS' Holiday. Now, let us celebrate, HIS Love, Caring and Giving with 'HIM' in Mind… Merry Christmas and Much Love to All! “ONE LOVE FOR ALL, ‘ALL, FOR ONE LOVE’!” Jonathan Phillip Moffett “Sugarfoot” Michael Jackson’s “Foot”!!!

A beautiful Christmas message from Jonathan "Sugarfoot" Moffett...(aka "Michael Jackson's Foot!")
43 minutes ago

I wasn't sure where to post this video. It's about an hour long but I have to say I didn't think about the time at all while watching the documentary about Michael's concert in Moscow and the days before and after.

There were a few occasions in the video where the person being interviewed would say "This is it". It left me wondering if there was more to that than random words to describe a moment of time.

It also described where people tried to sabotage the concert, the media's buy-off, etc., It leaves me with my eyes opened even wider as I acknowledge that most of Michael's life he was met with people trying to strike him down. Yet, in spite of that his spirit would shine through. Good does truly prevail.

Watch for yourself and come away with a new appreciation for Michael, the man.

What does Paying Michael Forward actually mean?

Well; the great news is most of us are already doing it.

Whether it’s speaking up in the workplace or in your own families; meeting the questions and assumptions of friends or strangers with facts and patience; sponsoring the planting of trees; contributing or contributing more to organizations helping those that need it; reducing your consumption of tabloid fare; or taking the time to comment at outlets where tired myths are repeated – wherever and whatever it is – in our different ways, many of us are already Paying Michael Forward.

There may be divisons and points of contention within the MJ community, but we are united about one thing: Michael Jackson matters. Not just because of what he achieved and gave while he lived. But because of the personthat he was.

For many of us, this is what motivates our desire to try and dismantle the cultural fog that exists about who Michael Jackson really was. It’s a desire that has become integrated into our ordinary lives in a way that feels – and is – entirely rational.

Does Michael Jackson’s legacy need our help?

Well, firstly: Michael Jackson already created his towering, century-defining legacy through the incredible memories and music with that “extra layer of something” he left behind, the undeniable fact of his colossal humanitarian work, and his children.

But fans, too, are a part of that legacy. On countless occasions Michael spoke about how the fans understood and helped sustain him through the turbulent times of his life. In a truly unique and authetic way Michael reached out to the fans – and we reached back. Our sense of connectedness hasn’t decreased since 2009; it’s increased. Many of us have found that focusing positively on things, ideas and ways that honor and enrich Michael’s legacy feels good. And more than that – it does good.

Man in the Music: Dismantling a myth without them even knowing it.

“If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it. “

Toni Morrison.

Joe Vogel certainly felt this way. And it is a reality that work created from a place of burning passion can set powerful things in motion, because of the passion that inspired it. Michael Jackson is proof of that.

The journey of a book is endless. New readers come to old titles and older readers find new ones. Even with the advent of ebooks, Kindle, Nook, Ipad – and who knows what’s next; whether in the bath, in bed, on trains, planes and automobiles (sorry!) – people still like to read.

But while millions of people love Michael’s music, whether in the background of their lives, or at important celebrations; many will go no further than that. They stop short of opening the door and going behind the myth of what they think they know, because for decades and for many still – even the idea of Michael Jackson is synonymous with ridicule and overlayed with complex projections.

But what if those people were exposed to something that looks just like a straightforward book about MJ and his music, but in fact contains and reveals so much more?

The challenge is this:

Since we know Joe Vogel’s ‘Man in the Music’ deserves and needs to be read by as many people as possible, and since we know Joe appreciates and wants our help – what can each of us do to get Man in the Music out there?

PMF team member talks about her first PMF experience with Man in the Music:

It was around the third or last week of October. My copies of MIM had come early and I hadn’t put it down since picking it up. Where I work, Michael Jackson, who I don’t talk about much there (at last I think I don’t) is seen as a bit of a joke – and that’s putting it mildly. In recent weeks, especially because the CM trial was on in the office, lots more opinion was flying about and it was quite difficult to be around that.

One girl in particular that I work with – Jenny – started talking about the trial in a slow moment, said looking straight at me, “… I’ve got nothing against Michael Jackson. I like his music, I think it’s great … I mean if Macaulay Culkin doesn’t mind, why should I?”

There was a long, silent pause. So many reactions jostled for position inside me, if I’m honest, I think I half gaped/half-smiled, just out of sheer, gut-wrenching shock. I knew I had ‘Man in the Music’ in my bag beside me but I didn’t get it out. I just said to Jenny. “What are you talking about, Macaulay Culkin? Michael didn’t do anything to Macaulay. Macaulay testified in Michael’s defense in 2005 at the trial!”

Jenny looked at me blankly. The words “2005,” and “testified” went straight over her head, just like I knew the words, “extortion”, “J. C. Penney,” and “contradictory, impossible timelines” also would. She repeated what she said and this time her chin jutted out as she said it. This was her opinion and she didn’t even ask me why I was looking at her incredulously. I knew she couldn’t and wouldn’t hear me. A second or two later, her attention turned to something else.

I knew in that moment I would give a copy of Man in the Music to Jenny.

A couple of days later, at work, I did just that. Because people often act differently if there are onlookers around, I waited until I could grab a moment alone with Jenny at some point in the day. I told her I had a present for her, something that I wanted to give her. Already wrapped, I handed Jenny Man in the Music and smiled. I kept my voice really even and didn’t look obviously expectant. I half expected her to give it back.

Jenny looked at me confused, her eyebrows wrinkling. Seriously wrinklng.

“Wow, thanks … er, it’s Michael Jackson” Jenny said. Part of her lip actually looked like it was curling. “ Er … are you lending this to me?….” She asked, with a kind of off-hand tone.

Several confused questions later, back at our desks I pointed Jenny in the direction of Joe Vogel’s website (easiest address ever right?), and she was soon checking his credentials out and looking at the book as if it might actually be worth taking home (!)

I didn’t say anymore, didn’t try to evangelicize, just kept it really light. I left her alone for the rest of the day and got on with my work. But the really good bit is at the end of this story. Just as we were leaving work and putting our coats on, I joshed a bit with Jenny, asking her whether she’d really read the book I’d given her.

Here’s what Jenny said:

When you initially presented the book to me, I was surprised. I was slightly perplexed as to why you were giving it to me. Then I was intrigued.”

And with that, we said our goodbyes. I sat on the subway with a big smile on my face all the way to my stop. I thought of Jenny reading MIM. I thought about her reading the part where Joe wrote about Rob Hoffman talking about how shocked he was when during a bit of downtime at the studio with MJ, a TV news report came on blatantly stating Michael was somewhere he physically couldn’t be (because he was right there with Rob) and what the news report was implying.

Just then, blinking hard, my stomach kind of frissoned. I knew Jenny would ‘get’ how huge that recollection was. Somehow I knew she’d be open mouthed when she read Rob’s words. I also knew she never have read them on ‘gearslutz’ but she’ll read them in Man In The Music. I’d just had my first PMF experience with MIM – and it felt amazing.

Paying ‘Man in the Music’ Forward: You know ‘why’ so how about ‘where?’

lt could be anywhere. Literally. Anywhere where you see or meet someone, or have a conversation where you intuitively feel it would be the ‘right’ time and place to do it. That’s your PMF moment right there. It’s that simple. But of course, there are some obvious places just crying out to be PMF’d!

1: Libraries:

Just walk in. Look for the friendliest looking and most senior looking librarian you can find. Politely ask them if you could have a quiet word. Wait if necessary until your designated librarian is also ready for that. When they are, tell them in a an easy and friendly way, (never hurts to smile too), that you would like to ‘gift’ a book to the library.

Suggested reasons listed below: (or just use one or two of them. Mix it up!)

That you’ve read the book and loved it, and that you wanted to support your local library and pass on something you thought others might appreciate. No big discussions about Michael’s ‘imminent factual vindication’ are necessary! Try and make your PMF experiences – wherever they are and whoever they’re with – pleasant for both you and the recipient (s).

Ask, if at all possible, if the book could be prominently displayed. It is rare that any library turns such gifts down, but if they for some strange reason they do – find a smarter one!

Choose your library wisely. Choose one that is actually visited by people who want to read books rather than people who want to find a sofa and sleep! Where the staff seem keen and involved, and one where you can possibly keep a ‘gentle eye’ on your gift’s journey.

2:Libraries in educational places:

This could be in secondary schools, colleges, universities or specialist educational facilities. If you’re able to visit the libraries of these different Ed places, check to see if they stock cultural content like biographies, normal fiction, reference books or other wider texts. There’s no point in gifting MIM to an Educational library if every other book there is about geographical stress lines!

Your manner and the process you go through at an Educational libarary should be exactly the same as the one you applied at the ordinary library. Always politely ask to speak to the most senior staff member, as only they can make the decision to accept your gift.

3: Work friends and Intimate friends:

Using the example of ‘Jenny’ above, you will know which of your friends to approach, when, and how – since you know them. Wait for a natural moment. Try to avoid writing a overly emotional inscription in the book as this may feel to your friend like they are being told what to think. A simple inscription like “Enjoy!” or something light may be more appropriate.

You can also ask them to pass on MIM once they have read it, in the same way it was passed to them. By gifting MIM, you are really just giving someone a chance to see a book they might not otherwise be exposed to. The rest is up to them.

Barnes and Noble are featuring Man in the Music at the front of their stores in the US for the entire month of November 2011, but whatever each of us can do to heighten the books visbility during – and beyond November, would be fantastic.

4: Book Clubs:

You can join an existing one and wait until it’s your turn to suggest a book, or set up your own book or reading club.

If you’re joining an existing club:

If asked, and you will be, why you want to put MIM forward to the group, we suggest perhaps saying you’ve heard great things about the book. Hopefully, by then Joe will have a top rated Amazon (he was number 1 in Japan for pre-orders) and Barnes and Noble ranking that you can quote, and this will also encourage your fellow book-club members. Try to keep it light.

If you’re setting up your own book club:

There are links under the word ‘Book Clubs’ that detail how to set up a reading group. There, you can read about what to do, what not to do, how to set your ground rules and the skills involved in running a discussion group and basically how to get up and running.

5:Libraries in Hospitals:

Uusally, there would be a librarian in charge or a duty nurse who can show you who to talk to. Choose your moment and your venue in this instance very carefully so you are not interfering with a medical emergency. If the library at the hospital does not look frequently used, don’t gift it there. Again, your usual PMF protocol, which you will have completely down by now should apply.

6:Youth groups or church groups:

Choose one in your own area. Speak to whoever’s in charge and scope out whether or not they have a library. If it looks secure and if you are given permission, talk about your reasons for gifting MIM with the decision-makers (s) there. This will only be possible if reading on the premises is part of what that group does. It may not be.

7: Other places:

There are other places we have not listed, places you may think are really obvious. By all means check them out. See what happens and let us know about it here at PMF!

It’s All About You:

This page and the ideas behind this site, is really all about you. Our approach here is to think short term and long–term.

The contest is all about the short term as we Surge Buy during the Nov 1-4 window period. All the details about additional bonus prizes for the ‘most creative ways’ of paying MIM forward are on the contest page here.

The Pay Michael Forward Contest

By accelerating MIM’s chances of entering the bestseller’s lists, we are not only sending a powerful message to publishers, we are giving Man in the Music a chance to be noticed by millions of people.

Each one of those people represents a heart and a mind that can be moved, or can move others. That’s how momentum is created. It really is a ripple effect. And it’s going to be really interesting to be a part of trying to make that happen.

But after the contest is over, that’s when the PMF experience kicks into its long term strategy. That is when we ‘take Michael to the people’ in the ways we’ve explored above and spread MIM to as many people as possible. So if you have already bought your extra copies of MIM, and cannot buy more during the contest – this site is still for you.

Man in the Music will be there after the contest and so will the PMF team. This journey we are all on together supporting and getting active about positive books and media about Michael Jackson is a lifetimes work.

Upload your videos, Tweet us, Twitpic us: Help build the PMF Experience Archive:

The PMF experience should be fun too!

We need your help and would love to see your PMF experience. Help us build the PMF Experience archive here. If, and as we get bigger we’ll open up more sections.

Upload your video clips of your PMF experience with Man in the Music in the comments section. You can also upload twitpics of you Paying Michael Forward.

Also please tell us how the experience was for you, we want to hear all about it! How you felt, what the other person (s) involved said? It doesn’t have to be amazing. It just has to be real. Whatever happens in your PMF experience, capture it! We would have liked to uploaded some example videos for all of you, but we didn’t get a chance. But we will try to get that sorted soon.

You can also also send twipics of your PMF experience and a little bio about it, to our twitter account which is on the home page of this site.

Happy Paying Michael Forward!

Ultimately, your Paying Michael Forward Experience can be anything you want it to be. It can be playful, it can be brief, it can funny – it can be brave.

But remember: everybody like presents right?

All we’re doing is showing someone a door, so that hopefully they’ll want to want to know more about Michael Jackson. After they finish Man in the Music, they may begin their own journey into the man …

By Justin Hyde | Yahoo! Autos – Wed, Oct 26, 2011 1:37 PM EDT

The U.S. government may soon own one of Michael Jackson's white gloves, a $530,000 Ferrari and a $30 million Malibu estate if it succeeds in seizing them from the son of a corrupt African dictator.

In a case kept hidden from public view until last week, the U.S. Department of Justice says it's pursuing more than $32 million in assets from Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, whose father Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has ruled over oil-rich Equatorial Guinea for 32 years -- and has been accused by authorities around the world of illicitly siphoning hundreds of millions of dollars for himself and his family.

A 2010 U.S. Senate report detailed how Obiang the younger, known as Teodorin, had moved $110 million into the United States through shell companies and anonymous transactions, propping up a hard-partying lifestyle that included spending $30 million on one of Malibu's largest mansions and a $38.5 million Gulfstream V jet. Obiang was also known to collect supercars like they were Hot Wheels, with at least 32 cars and motorcycles at one point, including eight Ferraris, two Bugatti Veyrons and a $2 million Maserati.

While the U.S. Department of Justice has said a probe into Obiang had been ongoing since 2004, the first signs of legal trouble for Obiang came from France, where authorities seized 11 of his cars last month, including the $2 million Maserati MC-12. While the Justice Department had sought seven cars from Obiang in California, its latest request mentions only one -- a 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO.

The documents unsealed last week in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles offer the first glimpse of the case built by the Justice against Obiang, accusing him of spending more than $100 million garnered from extortion and embezzlement in Equatorial Guinea. The feds also revealed how Obiang bought $3.2 million worth of memorabilia from Michael Jackson's estate earlier this year, including the white crystal-studded glove Jackson wore on the "Bad" tour, the MTV Music Video Award for "We Are The World" and several of the life-size figurines Jackson used to keep at his Neverland Ranch.

So far, no representatives of Obiang's has officially responded to the government's bid, and the Justice Department has not yet responded to a request for comment from Yahoo! Autos. Human Rights Watch, an advocacy group long critical of inaction against the Obiang family, has called on the United States and other countries to move against the clan despite their control over a key oil supply.

“The move to freeze Teodorín’s assets in the U.S. is overdue,” said Arvind Ganesan, business and human rights director at Human Rights Watch, in a statement. “But the real test will be if the U.S. government vigorously pursues the inquiry to its conclusion without letting diplomatic or business ties stand in the way.”

Join in the rally to get the Thriller video on Youtube to 100 million views by Monday, October 31st. Right now it's at 99,312,491.

Blessings :)

(Forbes) - It’s been two years since Michael Jackson passed away at the age of 50 but the King of Pop’s earning power shows no sign of waning.

For the second year in a row, Jackson tops our annual list of the Top-Earning Dead Celebrities. Over the past 12 months Jackson’s estate brought in $170 million from sales of his music and his stake in the Sony/ATV catalog. That’s a big drop from the $275 million Jackson earned in the previous 12 months but it’s still enough to make him the second highest-earning pop act over the past year, dead or alive, after U2.

Songwriters who own their own work usually fare best on our list because their catalogs can keep selling well long after they’ve passed away. But now there’s a new way for dead pop stars to earn big: Cirque Du Soleil.

Jackson headed out on tour again this month with the Cirque Du Soleil show Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour. If it’s successful, Jackson could net more touring in death than he did in life. Cirque and the King of Pop’s estate will split costs and profits evenly, and the cost of touring a Cirque show is less than that of a glitzy Michael Jackson round-the-world extravaganza. On top of that, the estate will collect performance royalties every night because the show uses his songs, most of which he has songwriting credits on.

Janet Jackson / Janet Jackson Returns to US to Support Her Family

Janet Jackson is returning to the United States immediately.

After private discussions with her family regarding her late brother Michael Jackson, it became necessary for Miss Jackson to leave Australia for the next several days.

" I want to thank my fans in Australia for their love, support and understanding. When I planned these shows, the schedule in California was completely different. After talking with my family last night, I decided we must be together right now. I'm looking forward to being with you for the Gold Coast, Sydney, and the Melbourne concerts. You are all so important to me. This saddens me in so many ways. I love you," said Janet Jackson in this exclusive statement.

To ensure that Janet’s Melbourne fans do not miss out on her “Number Ones” tour, the concerts scheduled for this week on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday are now planned to take place in a special configuration at Rod Laver Arena for one night only on November 3rd. Tickets for all of the Melbourne shows will be honoured at the Nov. 3 concert.

“It is important that Janet is with her family at this critical point in the hearing. While Janet and our company apologize for any inconvenience for the reschedule of the Melbourne shows, we thank Janet for the great and successful concerts in Perth and Adelaide and eagerly await her return. I’m sure the rescheduled concert on November 3 will be a very, very special night. Our thoughts and prayers are with Janet and the entire Jackson family," promoter Paul Dainty said.

Janet’s concerts on the Gold Coast and in Sydney are unaffected.

All ticket holders from all three Melbourne performances will be contacted with their re-allocated seating shortly.

I wondered how long before Michael would help those people close to his heart in Japan. I am curious though - will Jermaine and Randy be a part of this one? And, is the Estate backing it? It seems interesting that there is another one planned so soon - tickets go on sale this week.

Jackson Family announce ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ concerts in Japan (Dec. 13 and 14)

Michael Jackson’s family are staging a benefit concert in Japan to help children affected by the earthquake earlier this year, as they know it is a cause the late star would have supported.

Katherine Jackson has announced the Tokyo event will help a cause that her son would have done everything he could to support. Speaking at a press conference at Claridge’s hotel in London yesterday (Oct. 9), she tearfully told media: “If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes.”

Michael’s brothers will perform at the show as The Jacksons, and 81-year-old Katherine – who is the guardian of Michael’s three children, Paris, Prince Michael and ‘Blanket’ – is very “glad to see them back on stage”. The brothers can’t wait to get to the country and do something to help the Japanese people affected by the natural disaster which hit the coast of the Far East country in March.

Jackie Jackson said: “This concert can help children. I’m glad I can put smile on their faces again.” Marlon added: “Music can bring us together. Children can’t live without guidance. We want to point out kids to right direction. I’m pleased music can help other people.” Tito – who visited Japan after the earthquake – spoke of his belief that music can unify communities all over the world. He said: “People can become one, as human race.”

Merchandising profits from ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ – which will take place in Tokyo on December 13 and 14 – will be donated to ASHINAGA, a charity which helps children who lost their homes or families in the March earthquake.

Tickets will go on sale on October 12.

This is absolutely crazy! No wait, it goes right in line with everything else in this hoax. How come we haven't seen this person before? or, have we?


Hmmm....777,000??? Interesting number. I don't know why but I think of Neverland and Michael when I read this story.

Dr. Conrad Murray

© Rex Features / Stewart Cook
Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray had his home repossessed just before he stood trial for involuntary manslaughter, it has emerged.

The 58-year-old physician failed to keep up with mortgage payments on his £1m ($1.5m) Las Vegas residence following the 'Billie Jean' singer's death in 2009, resulting in the property being foreclosed and sold on.

Murray managed to renegotiate the terms of his mortgage, but the house was auctioned off for just £500,000 ($777,000) earlier this year.

"Conrad was under ­mountains of debt and with the trial looming there was ­nothing more he could do to save his home," a source told the Sunday Mirror.

Murray purchased the property in 2004. He is now living in a rented apartment in California with Nicole Alvarez, the mother of his 2-year-old son.

Alvarez was asked to give evidence at Murray's trial on Tuesday.

The trial is scheduled to continue for another five weeks and Murray could face up to four years in prison if found guilty.

Here is a little video of Katherine Jackson talking about the Cirque show.

New York, NY – On November 21, Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release IMMORTAL – the highly anticipated musical tapestry for Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour. IMMORTAL will be released as both a deluxe double disc version and single disc.
Led by esteemed musical designer, Kevin Antunes (Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Madonna) IMMORTAL takes a fresh, creative approach in redesigning and reimagining more than 40 of Michael Jackson’s greatest original recordings into a compilation that allows listeners to experience his music in an entirely new way. After spending a year in the studio working with Michael’s original multi-track master recordings, Kevin created IMMORTAL which offers listeners a new soundscape to Michael’s artistry while preserving the power and familiarity of his unparalleled voice and his legendary tracks.

Kevin Antunes comments, “Michael’s legacy as the greatest entertainer of our lifetime is inspiring beyond words. It was clear from the start that Michael’s voice and overall musical essence was the sole/soul source of creative energy driving the project. From the studio to the stage, there’s an undeniable integrity and resolute truth in Michael’s vocal performances that are highlighted in the Immortal arrangements. It was built with love and respect for Michael’s music, his family, and his millions of fans around the world.”

IMMORTAL is sure to touch the hearts of passionate Michael fans as the album unfolds his musical legacy with redesigned versions of his hits, electrifying mashups and newly discovered outtakes fans have never heard before including an alternate take on the Jackson 5’s “ABC” and a choir that Michael recorded for “They Don’t Really Care About Us.”
