    - The first new episode, of The Jacksons CBS-TV variety co-starring Redd Foxx, was broadcast on January 19, 1977.

Michael walked through the crowd to the stage dressed in black pants and a red military style shirt, with his hair pulled back in a ponytail. He first addressed the very soon to be President on the need for continued and increased funding for AIDS research. Then he speaks about his friend Ryan White, who was diagnosed with the AIDS virus when he was only 11 and died shortly after turning 18. Michael then dedicates and sings his anthem "Gone to soon" for his friend Ryan White, his voice cracking with emotion at the last lines. Several children then joined Michael on stage for his song "Heal the World", which he dedicated to "All the children of the world".

    Great! Love the way he ran into that hug with Diana--it was pure love & anticipation. I just realized how his white suite, glitter & high water pants prefigured Thriller. I love the black glitter socks too. Anyone notice Diana was grooving to the song on the balcony?

    Gone to soon always make me feel sad, which is a pity because it is a beautiful song.

    I think Bill Clinton liked Michael. I think he saw the person that Michael was. I hope.

    When the President of the United states the Guest of Honor, and the Audience gives Michael a standing ovation before he perform that was a poweful statement.

    I hope so too..at least it seems like he did. Who couldn't anyway? those who don't are missing something. Anyway, thanks again qbee it's always fun to read these facts.
    You and I were never separate.
    It's just an illusion. Wrought by the magical lens of perception~

    I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility.
    I chose honest arrogance and have seen no occasion to change.

    There are many pictures when Michael is letting Clinton meet Blanket as a newborn and the other children I think they're friends or at least acquaintance. Or how it's spelled or said.

    Bill Clinton Remembers Michael Jackson

    Jul 8, 2009






    Bill Clinton took time away from his aid mission to Haiti on Tuesday to remember Michael Jackson, and recall a time when he helped to bail out the Democratic Party at a crucial time.

    The former U.S. president, now a special U.N. envoy to Haiti, recalled Jackson’s performance at a 2002 fundraiser at New York’s Apollo Theater.

    “He basically helped save my party from terrible financial distress, so he was very kind to me personally,” Clinton said during a stop on his tour of a still-struggling northern Haiti.

    Clinton spoke fondly of Jackson, recalling that the singer performed at his first inauguration in 1993. He also said Jackson had struggled with the burden of early fame.

    “He was an immensely gifted man and I think he basically meant well,” Clinton told The Associated Press. “I know about all the trouble he had in his life and I hope he will be remembered for his contribution as an artist. I hope his children turn out well. That would be the greatest tribute you could have.”


    2002 Blonde hair neatly combed and wearing a natty waistcoat, Michael Jackson’s son Prince poses hand in hand with a smiling Bill Clinton.The King of Pop’s eldest child was just a toddler when he got to meet the former US President at a Democratic party fund-raiser in New York.


    2002 Jackson, watched by wide-eyed daughter Paris, also made sure baby Blanket got an official introduction – gingerly handing him over to the politician who was once the most powerful man in the world.

    Oh those pictures with Bill are treasures. Look how Paris is looking as though saying, "be careful with Blanket."
