    Yep, I think I remember seeing it on German TV on a few occasions, too. Most notably, VIVA showed it after the 2005 verdict. But the Brazil version was definitely the one that was shown most of the time.

    This is what I meant by “emotional support”: Madonna’s son David, dancing through injustice, anger and pain



    I really wish this song wasn’t as relevant anymore, but not much seems to have changed in all those years.

    Well there's making it about Michael and then there's associating Michael to it with things like TDCAU. I don't think there's anything wrong with the latter. Songs like TDCAU, or Killing In The Name by Rage Against The Machine as another example, are empowering, motivating, and cathartic in such dark times.

    Plus, it's not just fans who turn to TDCAU in times like this, or posted or even covered Heal The World/Earth Song during the last months.
