Michael Jackson For All Time
Take a Trip Down on the Memory Lane with the King of Pop

Today in MJJ HIStory


1982 – Michael attends a gala in honor of Quincy Jones at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

1985 – The charity single We Are The World by the super group USA for Africa, quickly became an anthem for the 80s, and along with the Band-Aid single, inspired a wave of musical charity events, from Live Aid on July 17, 1985 (which, ironically, Michael did not participate in, due to being tied up in filming Captain EO) to Hands Across America on May 25, 1986.
The music-charity movement grew to become far greater than the sum of its parts, but Michael’s crucial contribution guaranteed him a special place in a mass movement that came to define the 1980s pop culture almost as much as Thriller had two years earlier.

1993 – Michael Jackson’s single “Will You Be There” hit #9 in the U.K.

1997 – Michael Jackson’s “Blood On The Dance Floor: History in the Mix” was certified gold by the RIAA.
