Michael Jackson 

“People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It’s like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song. So I stay in the moment and listen.” – Michael Jackson

Michael received the “Michael Jackson Good Scout Humanitarian Award” on September 14, 1990 from the Boy Scouts. The award was created and named for Michael in recognition of his humanitarian efforts.
"Michael Jackson is a good example to youth, helping us keep kids off the streets by supporting Scouting," said Ray Martin, chairman of the board of Los Angeles Area Council Boy Scouts of America.

“Blood on the Dance Floor” has the vitality of an intelligence that refuses to be placated…It is a throwdown, a dare to the concept of innocuous Black pop.” – Armond White
What does that record mean to you?

Michael launched the BAD tour in Japan at Korakunen Stadium in Tokyo on September 12, 1987 to a sold-out crowd of 38,000. One of the fans who attended, an 18-year old named Ikuko Yamamoto, told a reporter “Even if I don’t understand the lyrics, his melodies go straight to my heart. He’s magic.” The headline of that New York Times story? “Michael conquers Tokyo.”

Behind the scenes: Captain EO is one of Michael’s most beloved projects. Did you know that it was originally called “Space Knights?” Captain EO first debuted at Disney World’s Epcot Center in September 1986.

The 1995 MTV VMAS became the Video Michael Awards as Michael appeared at the ceremony thanks to eleven nominations for his masterful short film “Scream.” Michael ultimately took home three awards that night.

You have seen it television. You have seen it online. You may even have been one of the lucky ones to see it last year in 3D at one of the Scream parties. But now for the first time ever, be the first to experience Michael Jackson’s Thriller like never before – in IMAX 3D!!

In honor of the Michael Jackson Diamond Celebration and Michael’s trailblazing legacy in both music and fashion, the brand @boss released an updated version of its white suit worn by Michael on the cover of Thriller, as well as an exclusive set of three t-shirts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On September 4, 1999, Michael Jackson attended the Kora All Africa Music Awards in South Africa to receive the Lifetime Achievement award. After receiving the award, Michael presented Nelson Mandela with a check for 1 million rand for the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. Michael generated the funds with his MJ & Friends concerts earlier in the year in Seoul and Munich.

The Diamond Celebration continues. Listen to Michael Jackson X Mark Ronson: Diamonds Are Invincible along with the rest of the official playlist on Spotify now. Link in bio.

Michael loved to be out in nature. He wrote: “When I see the clouds whisked away from a snow-capped peak, I feel like shouting ‘Bravo! Nature,” the best of all magicians, has delivered another thrill.” Who will be spending time outside this weekend?

Happy Birthday, Michael! On this day of the Diamond Celebration we hope all fans around the world will join in celebrating the immortal Michael Jackson and his legacy of astounding artistic achievement and his philanthropic and humanitarianism efforts wherever he went. #MJDiamondCelebration
