In the wake of Michael Jackson’s death, the world went into mourning. However, as time has passed, we have been able to remember all of the positive things that this unstoppable artist left the world throughout his fifty years. Michael Jackson’s work changed the face of pop music. He pioneered the music video clip, and his dance style, costuming and tenor voice set a new benchmark for performance. His records eclipsed even the most well-loved and established artists, and his influence on the music industry can still be felt today. But when Jackson’s musical prowess earned him unimaginable sums of money, he chose to use it in the only fitting way he knew how: he gave it away to charity. Through his ‘Heal the World’ foundation Jackson raised awareness of global issues as well as raising money, leaving a lasting legacy of goodwill with the world. Our program uses industry tributes to tell the story of the most important things that Michael Jackson left the world: his music; his charity work; and his children.
