Many of you here might or might not be aware that my main profession is related to music. I am a composer,writer,singer and dancer. I am also the CEO for a new music label in India. Since I understood music I have been a fan of Michael Jackson. Many people love him, hate him and yet many are least concerned. I officially started his fanclub in India "The Official Indian Michael Jackson Fanclub" - www.clubmj.com some years back and since then I have been organizing charity concerts under the title series "Heal the World Concert". I am not from those fans who scream and faint or go ecstatic about MJ. I love MJ as an artist and as a humanitarian and am least concerned about his personal life. I believe that his mission of 'heal the world' was strong and thought of inspiring and making more people aware abou it. Till now through these concerts I've donated clothes, food and books to poor children, and also donated computers to schools in villages which cannot afford one.
This year my concert is on 13th November in one of the biggest auditoriums in my city. This year I am involving about 100 of my own and wife's students to take part in the concert to make them aware of charity deeds which will help them in future life. I and my wife both teach singing and music since 3-4 years now. This year we will be donating money to a handicap school and also inviting old age homes people and blind children to the concert as an extra charity effort. In all this hassle I was ditched by brand sponsors as this wont be a 100% commercial concert but some part of it is like a social gathering of students hence a lot of burden fell on my and the students themselves to get donations and sponsors. WE are selling tickets as well around 800 of them. We get donors from world around from fellow MJ fans who know me as a spiritual counselor for years and yeah also as the creator of "The Michael Jackson Anthem" which was downloaded by more than 400,000 people by now.
I wont make any requests for donations in here as I really don't feel that anyone of you should trust me for using them for the right cause. But I will surely like you all pray for the concert to be a huge success. With the brand sponsors backup I will heave a sigh of relief even if I manage to collect some money over the concert expenses. With a lot of other priorities overhead I am very scared of how time is going to allow me to make things happen in there but for a good cause God will surely help :) You can see my earlier concert performance here - My Live Concert
