    Today in Michael Jackson History January 13th



    HISTORICAL DATES



    1973
    Michael Jackson's BEN debuted on the UK Album Charts at its peak position #17
    and remained within top 50 for 7 consecutive weeks.

    1999 The Japanese pop group J-Friends releases the single "People Of The World" composed by
    Michael in support of the Kobe relief effort. Michael wrote this song for the children in Kobe, where
    a devastating earthquake killed more than 5000 people in 1995. He offered to work with J-Friends
    who were then planning a charity project for the children of Kobe. He co-produced this song with
    Japanese producer Yasushi Akimoto. It is said that the singers listened to MJ’s demo version before
    they recorded, but MJ’s version remains unreleased. So today we still have no access to his original
    demo or lyrics. Just an English translation from the Japanese lyrics.

    2003 Madonna won the "Michael Jackson International Artist of The Year Award" at the AMA

    2006 - Michael was invited by the Al Gosaibi family to their wedding celebrations and he surprises
    everyone by showing up at the marriage ceremony.

    Alll have the same message just worded different)

    People of The World

    Meeting you,
    I was taught the meaning of love
    Changing nothing
    It's All of you
    I want to protect.

    Humans, every one of them
    From the time they were born
    Strive keep on living
    People all over the world

    People all over the world
    Everywhere alike, everyone alike
    Something happens, love will grow
    For you I will sing
    Sing a song of love...

    People all over the world
    If you, in some other places
    Will shed your tears
    My heart will hurt.
    I am sure that
    The tears of anyone on this earth may
    Hurt the same

    Arms in arms
    Hearts getting close to each other
    Everyone
    Sing on!
    People all over the world

    People all over the world
    If you smile, I will smile, too
    Love grows
    Someday on this earth there will surely be
    Only smiling faces.

    People all over the world

    People all over the world
    Love has been heard

    People all over the world
    From country to country

    People all over the world
    Love has been heard


    Children's voices:
    People all over the world

    People all over the world
    The world is one, we have the same heart
    Let's Sing the same song together
    From us to you

    “Together we sing to make a better world ….”

    People all over the world become one
    People all over the world become happy.
    For people all over the world to be happy.



    QUOTE OF THE DAY

    Michael Jackson is the most astonishing person I’ve ever met on
    the face of this planet. I never expected to meet anybody like him,
    I never suspected there was anybody like him… He lived to give."

    Wonderful videos. I wonder why Michael's version was not used?
