" We, the worldwide fan community who love, respect and honour Michael Jackson are united in their defiance of Shmuley's act of betrayal. We do not support this book in any way. It is a total violation of Michael's right to privacy, and we believe the publication of the content of these tapes to be a breach of the trust Michael placed in Shmuley. We, the members of the worldwide fan community will not join Shmuley in his betrayal, and we will not help him profit from his deception of Michael. Not only will we not buy the book, we also send a clear message to all others who seek to attack the truth, beauty and integrity of Michael's memory. This statement is a declaration of our intent. We as a community will not support or tolerate any such attacks on Michael's name, memory or legacy in any way, and we actively protect Michael's legacy and rights - not only for Michael and his children who survive him, but for all of us who choose to honour what Michael achieved, endured and gave here. He lives whenever and wherever he is remembered. And we choose to remember him with love. "

This is a worldwide call to all the fans: Please paste this ' Declaration of Intent ' everywhere on youtube, facebook and every Michael Jackson site worldwide. Shmuley will be attempting to sell this book worldwide. We, the fans can limit his effectiveness by letting everyone know this book is available for download. We, the fans support the products and initiatives Sony and the ' Estate' produce as this benefits Michael's estate and his children. That is why the fans community supports this site, but we will not allow Shmuley and other opportunists to profit from Michael's death and, more than that, we will not the beautiful memory of Michael to be dishonoured and taken away from us. Please paste this everywhere and note that the book this statement refers to is available for audio play free at youtube and download free at the Forum part of this site and other public access sites.

Best MJ tribute music video on YouTube:


We recently released a hip hop music video tribute for Michael's birthday entitled, Shining. This is probably one of the most thoroughly produced MJ tribute videos out there... amazing costumes, great lyrics, and tons of memorable and rare MJ video clips. Check it out if you love Michael, music, or videos.

You will not be disappointed.

My deepest sympathy to the entire Jackson family. Micheal beared his soul to his fans through his music and he will live on forever in the hearts of his fans and through his music. It was such a tragic loss. He was such a kind person and I believe he just wanted what every other person wanted. His family and his children. To build a life that he could enjoy. To love his children and give them everything that he could possibly imagine. I can't imagine anyone who could have been a better father than Micheal. I believe that he still carried a great deal of child like qualities to him that would make him an amazing father. Prince Micheal, Paris, and Blanket have lost their father and will always remember the love that he gave them. My instincts are that Micheal protected and loved his children dearly and there is nothing or no one who could ever convince me otherwise. God has welcomed the latest JEWEL in his crown welcoming Micheal into heaven. Although we will all greatly miss him and continue to wish that he were still here with us I hope that the family can be comforted in knowing that he will never be forgotten and always loved by the millions of his fans. Having lost my husband I know the intense loss of losing such a great soul. Micheal gave so much of his self to his fans and his career. I am so glad that he had his children to comfort him and give him so much of the great joy that he has given all of us. The pain will never go away. I must tell you that each year his memory will forever be with you. They are hopefully great memories that will go with you all now and in the future. God Bless each of you and thanks for sharing such a personal experience with all of his fans. Love and Peace be with all of you.

Mrs. Katherine Jackson, I really think you made the Right Choice to let our beloved Michael Rest in Peace in surroundings fit for the King of Pop. Please know that Michael will live forever in my Heart. I know you will take care of his children. May God Bless you. Michael has blessed me and his music continues to inspire me. I am still listening and purchasing his music because he was a gift from God.

Warm Regards
