Michael Joseph Jackson has reigned the world of music, dance and fashion right from the dazzling Sixties till his untimely death. Michael Jackson’s life generated controversy for years. It was a roller coaster of pain and bliss. The glossy glamour, the riches, his assets, his dream house – ‘Neverland Ranch’ and a wardrobe full of shimmering costumes did nothing to hide the internal despair that imprisoned his heart since childhood. A blotched past of brutal father, incessant name calling, and physical and emotional abuse engendered an endless ocean of grief. Lack of self-confidence led him to change his appearances several times. Music was his only escape from his sorrow. He lived in his own reality – indirect attempt to salvage his childhood. This reflected in his dramatic music videos, magnificent concerts, revered home and opulent dressing.
A sensitive, kind-hearted spirit mirrored the existence of Michael Jackson. He was a notable philanthropist and humanitarian acknowledged for significant donations. He cared excessively for nature, children and all of humanity. Our inspiration lies in the depths of his life – the highs and the lows – the glamour as well as the anguish.
In spite of the witch hunt, the allegations and the manipulations his genius will remain undiminished and untarnished. This is a celebration of just that. Just him. Just his music. As we stand on the threshold of our graduation, none other could ever inspire our emotions more aptly. Ladies and gentlemen, THIS IS IT. For us as it was for HIM!
