BHM Spotlight: The Gospel According to Michael

Beyonce, Usher, Chris Brown, Ciara: when it comes to recognizing artists whose art and sound prominently reflects the influence of Michael Jackson, it's easy to identify those (and similar) incredible pop/R&B superstars. But you don't often hear names like Kirk Franklin, Kierra Sheard, Tonex, or Deitrick Haddon -- gospel artists who have masterfully woven the influence and sound of Michael Jackson into their art and Black spirituality. Join the Users as we discuss Michael Jackson's early roots in the Black American gospel music tradition and how the sound of Black gospel and spiritual music shaped MJs sound and art -- and how it helped influenced a generation of transformative and consequential Black gospel artists. The Gospel According to Michael is *most especially* a showing of love to the handclapping, foot stompin' members of the #MJFAM! For others, it's a look into a rich tradition that served as a foundational template for the art and career of Michael Jackson. Happy #BHM2024.

Michael Jackson celebrated his very first Christmas holiday in 1993. Having grown up a devout Jehovah’s Witness, Michael once said that because of his religious upbringing, he was taught to never celebrate Christmas or any other holiday. However, that all changed when, at the age of 35, Michael Jackson celebrated his first Christmas, courtesy of one of his truest friends, and Hollywood icon, Elizabeth Taylor.

"What More Can I Give?" Michael Jackson's lost and unsung charity single, still uplifts listeners nearly 20 years after it became known to fans and the public as a song written by Michael Jackson featuring some of the best voices of the early 2000s (Celine Dion, Beyonce, Luther Vandross, Usher, Mariah Carey and more!). Michael Jackson's meant to use this song in order to raise money for the victims of 9/11. However, because of professional and personal issues behind the scene (that spilled over into the public) the song never reached its full potential and was never able to achieve its purpose. On Day 10 the Users celebrate "What More Can I Give" and how its message and sound endures.
