Hi #MJFam:

We hope that this finds you healthy and safe during these uncertain ties. Feeling connected to a community while physically distancing is one of the most important things that you can do to help navigate the anxiety around CoronaVirus. The Estate has created a new “Heal The World” video specifically focusing on the current world crisis which will be shared on Facebook as a watch party, and wants to make sure that all of you have the opportunity to join and connect with other fans during this time. Michael’s music brings people together in a unique way, and this video watch party will be another way to connect with your fellow fans and feel comforted in this time. For anyone who hasn’t seen it the announcement and a short trailer can be seen on any of Michael’s social media pages (Facebook Twitter Instagram).


Watch here https://www.facebook.com/michaeljackson/ at 10 a.m. ET on Friday, April 3, which is 7 a.m. PT and 3 p.m. BST.

Best,
Alicia

I really like the concept. Simple, reminiscent of the "Man in the Mirror" video, and a great reminder of how COVID-19 has caused humanity to band together in support of one another, as well as a distraction from the ridiculous political battles (at least within the US).

Thumbs up to the Estate for this move.

Judging from the short trailer on YouTube, I think this is just a cheap edit with some Dangerous Bucharest DVD footage in it, and no new footage at all. I hope the final product proves me wrong.

I’m guessing this actually starts at 3pm BST? Facebook says it should’ve started at 2pm

I think its beautiful... I wasnt expecting a whole brand new video with unreleased footage, outtakes, new vocal etc. It is what it is! It's not a new commercial project. Just a message of hope!

Heal the world ?????

My wife and I just cried. What a beautiful piece. I’m lost for words. Didn’t expect this at all.

Heal the World.

I believe I saw a Freddie Mercury statue wearing a mask in this new video, another "collaboration" huh?

I thought this video was gonna be longer because they said it was gonna be live. so I thought it was gonna be some kind of live video with fans. not for a few mins but like an hour or something.

it was nice. it's nice what they are doing for a change. Michael would of probably done something like this if he was here with us. Michael was always known for helping others during difficult times and rough times with people and children.

everybody stay safe and wash your hands. and healtheworld during these difficult times.

No one ever said there was going to be new footage of Michael. This is a response from the Estate to the way in which HTW has been linked with the battle of our species against corona virus.....people are turning to Michael's music, searching for love, hope and inspiration, the way they always have, in difficult times. The added footage in the video is from the CO-VID19 fight; it brings HTW well and truly into the present and demonstrates its continued relevancy.

"Live" meaning it was launched at a time when all/most fans could watch and stream together; everyone watching at the same time, all over the world. This was an exercise in togetherness - unification for a common cause.

Honestly.. some fans.

THIS is exactly what we need. People turning to Michael's MESSAGE! Forget new footage & HD concerts for a second, after last year THIS is exactly what is needed!

What a truly special video and a great reminder of just who Michael Jackson was and what he used his talent for. To give us HOPE!

Bravo Estate!!

Definitely agreed, it really shows Michael's message and music is timeless and can always be applied when needed.

And we have something Michael to look back to these times one day when this crisis is over. :)

The message is good, without a doubt. I was only talking about the content. After all, it's a new official video from the Estate, something we fans always wanted for years. One would expect to see something more than a cheap edit, right?

To me, this looks like fan made. For example, we Chinese fans actually made a "Heal The World 2020" video posted last month (https://www.mjjcommunity.com/forum/...ackson-fans-come-together-to-‘Heal-the-World’), and it actually has better editing & people singing.

While the editing wasn't all that good. it still show a great message. sometimes you don't need to be fancy to spread a message.

Today fans on twitter are using the hashtag #HealTheWorld2020 with this video. it's not for the estate but to spread Michael message during these difficult times.
