Today in MJJ HIStory


1979 – Michael released the first single from the forthcoming album; “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough”. The song was solely written by Michael and featured a spoken intro, a surprising falsetto voice and amazing percussion by Michael and his brother Randy. The song was released with a bright music video that featured Michael dancing in triplicate in the song’s bridge. It was his first “short film” and it was directed by Nick Saxon. The song went to number 1 in the US and Australia and was a top 10 hit in 6 countries.

1989 – Michael became the newest claymation member of the Raisin Family by appearing in their new TV commercial called “Michael Raisin”. Michael’s speaking voice is used in the ads, but his singing voice on the song “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” couldn’t be used because of his exclusive contract with Pepsi. Michael agreed to lend his image to the commercial after working with the claymation creator on “Moonwalker”.

1995 – Michael is seen in his newest video You Are Not Alone” with his wife Lisa Marie Presley-Jackson during its premier on ABC-TV.

The music video directed by Wayne Isham, begins with a large number of paparazzi taking photographs of Jackson. The plot then centers around two locations: a temple where Jackson appears in an affectionate semi-naked scene with Lisa Marie and a theater where Jackson performs the song to an empty hall. Jackson also appears alone in other locations such as deserts and mountain tops. The special effects were used to give Jackson white feathery wings.

1998 – Michael Jackson announced the creation of a new company, Michael Jackson Japan Co. Ltd. The company was intended to build theme parks and sell toys throughout the world.
