I first set up this web site in early 2009 after Michael announced that he would be performing live at the O2 as means to record the life changing events that this concert series would bring. The most important part of the whole project was the fact that it would be a community project that fans could contribute to. Since that terrible day on June 25th I decided to keep this site alive as a last memory of Michael’s memory and even though we have had a number of writers come and go I don’t really feel that we have been able to capture that community feel.
So with that I am throwing open the doors of AMajorLove.com to all of you. Whether you have photos, videos or stories to share or even if you just want to say “Hi” to our loyal readers simply fill in the form below with a short description of the sort of thing that you would like to post to the site and we will sort you out a login from which you can share your thoughts and experiences and ultimately keep Michael’s spirit alive because legends never die.
Michael Jackson’s infamous Thriller jacket sold yesterday at auction for a whopping $1.8 million. The jacket, one of two used in the original video shoot was purchased by Milton Verret, a Texas gold trader made the winning bid in person at the auction and plans to tour the jacket to raise money for children’s hospitals wordwide. I so must go and see that!
Welcome to the brand new amajorlove.com on what is a difficult day for us all. I thought that today would be a good day to relaunch the site as MJ fans are looking for things to help them focus on the wonder that he brought to us all and also it has kept me busy for the last few weeks taking my mind off things.
This site was originally conceived as a web site for fans who were attending the ‘This Is It’ concerts at the O2 in London to record their experiences and serve as a log of what surely would have been the greatest show on earth. After MJ’s tragic death on June 25th 2009 I decided that the project would not be shelved and thus AMajorLove became the site you see today, a lasting memorial of everything Michael, contributed by the fans to share the magic that Michael gave to us all.
In this new phase of the site we will be updating a lot more regularly and we would love to hear from you. If you have anything you would like to share about your MJ experiences be it music, words, art, anything we would love to hear from. There are even openings for fans to become fully fledged editors of the site. No matter what your contribution big or small please get in touch.
For now we hope that you enjoy the new site. I would also like to publicly welcome Malcolm Bryce of the MJ Forever Show as an executive producer of the site, he’s got some BIG ideas. There are great things coming and remember it’s all for L.O.V.E. and our thoughts are with you all today and always.
Finally, one man has the moral fortitude to turn down big money and protect Michael Jackson’s legacy – and it’s the auteur behind I Gotta Feeling. Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am, who collaborated with Jackson before his death, has criticised plans to release the singer’s unfinished music. “He wouldn’t have wanted it that way,” Will.I.Am said. “Freaking parasites!”
On the anniversary of his death Michael’s fans will be allowed ‘limited access’ to the Forest Lawn Cemetery. Although they will be opening their gates fans will not gain access to MJs final resting place but will be able to ‘view at a distance’ according to police officer Tom Lorenz speaking to the LA Times this week. Negotiations continue between Forest Lawn, The Jackson Family and the local authorities. I just makes me feel happy that MJ won’t be alone on that day.
