    Default SiriusXM exclusive Michael Jackson channel

    Now more than ever, enjoy The King of Pop’s iconic music on The Michael Jackson Channel
    July 15, 2020



    SiriusXM’s exclusive Michael Jackson channel — featuring the best of the King of Pop — will give you the perfect soundtrack for dancing or rocking the night away when it launches today, July 15 at 12pm ET.

    The Michael Jackson Channel will feature music from the King of Pop’s entire catalog, from The Jackson 5 to his solo hits, live performances, and Michael Jackson’s Live at Wembley concert from 1988. The channel will also air King of Pop Playlists featuring Guest DJs such as Akon and Rodney Jerkins, as well as Jackson 5 members and brothers Jackie, Marlon, and Tito playing and discussing their favorite Michael Jackson songs. The Michael Jackson Channel is voiced by journalist and author Steven Ivory whose byline has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Billboard, the Hollywood Reporter, Essence, and Vibe, among others. Ivory is a long time Jackson family friend and interviewed Michael Jackson, his sister, and brothers many times over the years. He weaves history, context, and insight around Michael’s music and the artists who influenced Michael and who were influenced by him. Ivory has also created a playlist he is calling Now More Than Ever as a soundtrack for this important moment in history.

    “Michael’s music has always rallied the world to acknowledge historical anguish with songs and videos such as ‘They Don’t Really Care About Us’ and ‘Black or White,'” Ivory said. “At the same time, he aspired to unify and lead the world with inspiring anthems like ‘Heal the World’ and ‘Earth Song,’ which addressed issues that were important to him such as the care of our planet.”

    The Now More Than Ever King of Pop Playlist premiers on Friday, July 17 at 7pm ET. The Michael Jackson Channel will be available on the SiriusXM app in the Pop category. Channel 50 will also become The Michael Jackson Channel from Wednesday, July 15 at 12pm ET through Tuesday, July 21.

    Michael Jackson channel launching on SiriusXM

    By Associated Press

    Published: 12:36 BST, 15 July 2020

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - The King of Pop is joining The Boss and Old Blue Eyes on SiriusXM satellite radio.

    The month-long Michael Jackson channel was announced Wednesday by the singer's estate.

    The channel will feature music from Jackson's albums and from live performances, including his 1988 concerts at London's Wembley Stadium on his Bad Tour.

    Around-the-clock King of Pop programming will begin at noon Eastern. Jackson joins SiriusXM channels devoted to artists like Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra and The Beatles.

    Playlists created by singer Akon, Jackson´s brothers and fellow Jackson 5 members Jackie, Marlon and Tito will also be featured.

    It will also include music that influenced Jackson from artists including James Brown and Sly & the Family Stone, and artists that Jackson influenced including Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Usher.

    Journalist and author Steven Ivory, a family friend who interviewed Jackson often, will provide the voice of the channel, telling stories, introducing discussions that chronicle the history and career of Jackson and sharing his own Jackson playlist.

    Ivory said the music and message of Jackson, who died in 2009 at age 50, are especially fitting for the world in a moment of trouble and turmoil.

    "Michael´s music has always rallied the world to acknowledge historical anguish in songs and videos such as `They Don´t Really Care About Us´ and `Black or White,`" Ivory said in a statement. "At the same time, he aspired to unify and lead the world with inspiring anthems like `Heal the World´ and `Earth Song´ which addressed issues that were important to him such as the care of our planet."

    The channel will be available for 30 days on the SiriusXM app and streaming devices, and on the satellite radio network's channel 50 for a week.

    Scooped: Michael Jackson’s Getting His Own Dedicated SiriusXM Channel, So is Bob Marley and a Bunch of Others
    by Roger Friedman - July 15, 2020

    https://www.showbiz411.com/2020/07/1...unch-of-others

    A few weeks ago I told the Michael Jackson fans on Twitter that I good news coming for them. SiriusXM was working on dedicating a channel to the late King of Pop.

    I knew what was happened, but I paused out of deference to Sirius, which I love. They weren’t ready, I was told through backchannels.

    So of course, no good deed goes unpunished. Today they announced it. I can tell you that Sirius is doing a bunch of new dedicated channels. Bob Marley is getting one. Prince won’t be far off.

    The stars who have them now are The Beatles, Elvis, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Tom Petty, the Grateful Dead, Frank Sinatra and pals. and a few others. Sirius is flexible enough to do pop up channels when they’re necessary. The artist just had to have a big enough catalog, and a management or record company willing to collaborate.

    The Michael Jackson channel will be a big hit, I predict. There’s plenty of music. And if it’s handled as skillfully as the Beatles channel, there will be plenty of interviews and clips and audience interaction.

    So that was my news, it’s just something nice we can all enjoy.

    I'm guessing it's only for a month because they'll want to see how many listeners they'll get. I hope that fans get behind this not only to enjoy his music, but to show that the audience is still strong for Michael

    If Michael was here he would be writing songs to help us through this COVID 19 Pandemic.

    God, I thank you for allowing Michael to continue to watch over his children:

    Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket ("Bigi").

    I think you’re right!

    I don’t have SiriusXM, so I hope some users that do can report what they play! I’m curious to see how deep into his catalog they dive.
