Disney Channel Michael Jackson Tribute

In June 25, 2009, the world lost one of the greatest entertainers of all time, Michael Joseph Jackson. Years later, there had been tributes to him in concerts, charities and everywhere. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a tribute album made for us to listen. So, I've figured that the best way to honor a legend is to highlight and recreate their work; The music of the King of Pop should definitely be performed by the most talented young stars of today and the powerful and positive messages in his music should exist forever! Today, the brightest young entertainers are on current Disney Channel shows and movies (Andi Mack, Descendants, Raven's Home, Stuck in the Middle, etc.). The talent and popularity of these young stars will enhance Michael's legacy and reinforce his positive messages for the youth of today. Performances by these young stars would be Bad and live Off the Wall! The youth today would feel even more Invincible when hearing this recreated work because they're Dangerous showing their extraordinary musical talents. It would be a Thriller just hearing them sing in honor of Michael and dedicate this album to his fans and his children [Paris, Prince, & Blanket] making HIStory throughout the world. I already know who Michael Jackson was since then and he did inspire everyone to make the world a better place and do the right thing in life for both kids & adults on this Earth. Every time I think about him listening to his music, I start wondering what he'd do if all of these events (police brutality, wars, terrorism, cancer, etc.) keep happening in the world. I intend to help stop this and we all must come together. This is a vision any moonwalker would like to see in future outcomes, and I'm gonna help make it come true. Michael is gone, but his spirit lives and so does his music to be listened and recreated again by the stars of Disney Channel shows. It will be an unstoppable one to listen for fans like me and you. Your signatures on this petition will ensure that the great music of the King of Pop will last forever. Please join me in support and sign this petition to ask Disney & The MJ Estate to help pay tribute to our musical hero with its stars singing his hits one by one in a great & glorious album. Let's start making a change together and moonwalk our way to victory...now. #DisneyStarsSingMJ #HonorMJ

Save the South’s first-ever music recording studio!

Plans for a Margaritaville restaurant in Downtown Atlanta which first surfaced in 2016 have expanded exponentially and now involve a 21-story Margaritaville Vacation Club hotel. Demolition for the Margaritaville hotel will completely remove a rather unassuming brick building at 152 Nassau Street which held the first music recording sessions in the South. In June 1923, Ralph Peer and engineers from Okeh Records came down from New York to Atlanta to record southern musicians – black and white. This was the first time vernacular musicians had ever been recorded on “location” – before New Orleans (1924), Memphis (1927), Bristol (1927), or Nashville (1928).Fiddlin’ John Carson recorded “The Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane” which became the yet-to-be-named country music genre’s first hit record. Okeh’s recording sessions also included African-American blues musicians Lucille Bogan, Fannie Mae Goosby, and Eddie Heywood along with local jazz bands and the Morehouse College Quartet. Songs from the recording sessions were released in the US, UK, and Germany. Located next to major concert venues like The Tabernacle, Centennial Olympic Park, and State Farm Arena, preserving this building and telling its story provides a unique opportunity to connect Atlanta’s music history with the city’s on-going role in the industry today. A similar project to celebrate a historic makeshift recording studio is currently underway in Dallas, Texas at 508 Park.
