Today In Michael Jackson History (May 15)

2001 – A life-size porcelain sculpture of Michael on a bed of roses holding Bubbles was auctioned in New York today for $5,615,750 (US). The sculpture, made by artist Jeff Koons in 1988, went under the hammer at Sotheby’s Spring Contemporary Art Auction..

1998 Michael Jackson held a press conference to announce a series of worldwide benefit concerts for children. The first one was in Seoul with Luciano Pavaroti and Elizabeth Taylor on October 11. He says, “On October 11, I am very excited to be organizing and performing the first of what I hope to be a series of concert appearances to benefit the World Peace Foundation for Children.

In 1985, I joined with many others in the music industry to create ‘We Are The World’, a song which led to the USA For Africa concert.That event brought millions of dollars in aid to hungry families and children throughout Africa and the United States. Following that experience, it was my dream to create a worldwide series of concerts which would raise funds to bring aid to suffering people around the globe. Today, with the help of many friends, we are taking the first step towards realizing that dream.
.
I am delighted to be working with my good friends Luciano Pavarotti and Elizabeth Taylor to perform the first of these concerts at Chamsil Stadium in Korea, a country I have grown to love very, very much. We are also working on plans to have a special performance in the de-militarized zone which separates North and South Korea, an event which has never been done before. Elizabeth Taylor has supported this endeavour since its inception and I’m very excited that she will be joining me at this very important event. It is my sincere hope that through my efforts, and through the support of Cheil Communications and the Korea Peace Foundation for Children, we can bring an end to famine in this troubled part of the world. In the years ahead, it is my intention to create similar events which will bring together musicians from around the world to raise additional funds for the World Peace Foundation for Children. Thank you very much.
