In being one of the most gifted entertainers of all-time, Michael Jackson‘s birthday has long been a global celebration.
This year, however, sees the late legend’s narrative reach a major milestone; for today marks what would have been his 60th birthday.
Fittingly, a series of celebratory activations are being unveiled – one of which is a new production courtesy of hitmaker Mark Ronson.
Christened ‘Diamonds Are Invincible,’ cultivating new mix of MJ classics was a task Ronson says he was greatly honored to be commissioned to do. In a statement, he gushed:
“It was such an amazing, awe-inspiring and insanely intimidating task to put this together, although you’d need hours and hours to fit all of Michael’s classic tunes into one track. I wanted this to feel like being on the dancefloor at a sweaty, wild NYC club getting down to as much MJ as possible in five minutes. And I can’t wait for you to all hear the extended version coming soon.”
Take a listen below…
The Diamond Celebration for Michael Jackson’s birthday is being treated as a global event.
A giant Diamond Celebration crown has been erected at London’s Southbank – Observation Point, then there’s a mural in Hamburg, Germany, to fan generated gatherings in Japan, Spain, Moscow and more, to a party for over 1300 fans in Las Vegas.
Suffice to say, team MJ are going all out to celebrate the greatest entertainer of all time and the biggest selling solo artist in history.
