    Today in Michael Jackson History January 25th




    HISTORICAL DATES


    1971 Mayor of the City of Gary, Indiana, Richard Gordon Hatcher, honored Jackson 5 by issuing a proclamation changing the name of the street they had once lived on from "Jackson Street" to be "Jackson 5 Boulevard" for the week of January 25 through January 31, 1971. When the Jacksons arrived on January 31, they were presented with the new street signs in front of their old house at 2300 Jackson Street.

    1975 - Michael Jackson performed "We're Almost There" on "American Bandstand."

    1985 - Ken Kragen chaired a production meeting for "We Are The World" at a bungalow off Sunset Boulevard.
    There, Kragen and his team addressed where the song would be completed by the supergroup of musicians. He stated,
    "The single most damaging piece of information is where we're doing this. If that shows up anywhere, we've got a chaotic situation that could totally destroy the project. The moment a Prince, a Michael Jackson, a Bob Dylan—I guarantee you!—drives up and sees a mob around that studio, he will never come in." On the same night, Quincy Jones' associate producer and vocal arranger, Tom Bahler, was given the task of matching each solo line with the right voice. Bahler stated, "It's like vocal arranging in a perfect world". Jones disagreed, stating that the task was like "putting a watermelon in a Coke bottle". The following evening, Lionel Richie held a "choreography" session at his home, where it was decided who would stand where.

    1988 - Michael Jackson's BAD was chosen as the Favorite Soul/R&B Single at the 15th Annual American Music Awards, hosted by Whitney Houston, Barbara Mandrell, Mick Fleetwood, Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb, Robin Gibb, Smokey Robinson, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles California. He was also nominated for Favorite Male Artist - Pop / Rock, which was one by Paul Simon

    1993 - Michael Jackson opens the 20th American Music Awards ceremony with a performance of "Dangerous" at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Ca. He was awarded Favorite Pop/Rock Album: for Dangerous, Favorite Soul/R&B Single: for "Remember the Time" and The "International Artist Award". Eddie Murphy announced that Since Michael was the first recipient of the The "International Artist Award" It would now be called The "Michael Jackson International Artist Award".

    1997 A Michael Jackson Memorabilia Auction is held in Bombay, India. The money raised was given to a charity, which helps educate children living in slums. Michael had also waived his personal fee for the Bombay appearance and donated $1.1 million to charity. Diamond merchant, Bharat Shah, paid $10,081 for a pillow case on which Michael wrote, "India, all my life I have longed to see your face. I met you and your people and fell in love with you. Now my heart is filled with sorrow and despair for I have to leave, but I promise I shall return to love you and caress you again. Your kindness has overwhelmed me, your spiritual awareness has moved me, and your children have truly touched my heart. They are the face of God. I truly love and adore you India. Forever, continue to love, heal and educate the children, the future shines on them. You are my special love, India. Forever, may God always bless you

    2002 - Michael Jackson's album "Invincible" was certified double platinum by the RIAA.

    QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "Wherever you go-in every country, or in every continent, people yearn
    and hunger for only one thing, to love and to be loved. Love transcends
    international boundaries and heals the wounds of hatred, racial, prejudice,
    bigotry and ignorance. It is the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation."


    ~ Michael Jackson

    She's keeping him by keeping him around~

    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.
