A crucial aspect of Michael Jackson’s life, which is rarely highlighted (and often blatantly ignored), is that of his amazing humanitarian work. While this comes up on The MJCast frequently as a point of discussion, the team is finally taking the opportunity to dedicate a full episode to this important topic. At last, the time is right for a deep-dive chat. Q welcomes to the show megafan and author Paul Dwyer, whose book, Humanitarian – The Real Michael Jackson, has just been published, as well as Friend of the Show and MJ Charity Correspondent Steven Hodges, of Michael Jackson Fans for Charity.
The guys discuss Paulie’s book and the creation of Steven’s MJFFC project, and, of course, get into the charity work Michael Jackson engaged with during his life. From acting as a US Cultural Ambassador to his Presidential Humanitarian Award, to songs such as “Man In The Mirror”, and to his work with hospitals, community centers, hospices and orphanages, Michael Jackson did incredible, world-changing work for many years. He was, ultimately, a human being who represented love and peace. We should remember him, acknowledge him, be inspired by him, and follow in his footsteps in our own lives.
We encourage all of our #MJFam out there to #MakeThatChange!
