MJ wants a child choir to do sign language

  • on: January 09, 2010, 05:40:53 PM
I know we had discussed the possiblity of Michael doing sign language in his song.  I came across this article talking about how MJ wanted a children's choir to do sign language.  Maybe we should go back and look at the video of him doing sign language and try to do more research on it.  Here is the article.

Jacko: It Matters Choir Is Black And White
11:08am UK, Thursday June 11, 2009

Michael Jackson has reportedly made a series of strange demands ahead of his comeback shows at London's O2 Arena.

 
Jackson is set to do a 50 show residency at O2 Arena from July


The singer has apparently asked for a choir made up of children who are all able to perform sign language.

He is also reportedly demanding the choir consists of exactly equal numbers of white, black, mixed race and asian children.

The request also includes six marching drummers who are "young adults and clean-cut".

Sources close to promoters AEG said: "Normally when we cast choirs for acts, it's quite a laborious task - but in this case it's proving a near impossibility."

"AEG are desperate to keep Jacko happy and so are pulling out all the stops to make it happen, but it's a race against time."

Earlier in the year Jackson was forced to postpone some his shows at the O2 Arena this summer. It was stressed the delay was not due to health reasons.

Fans with tickets to three of the initial concerts will have to wait until Spring 2010 to see him.

Jackson's 50 date residency in London will run from July to February next year.

Yes, because it is strange to have all equal races of children represented to convey the message of peace and for them to know sign language that every person will have the change to understand the message. *rolls eyes* whatever.

Was it Human Nature that he was doing sign language at the end of the song?  I would love to know what he was signing.
I think it would have been beautiful to see children of all races signing at his concert.

I posted this article because we were all talking about the signing that Michael was doing in This is It.  We were trying to figure out if it was indeed sign language and if it was, what was he wanting to say.  I just thought it was interesting that I found an article about him wanting to have a children's choir to do sign language for his concert.  Now that we know he wanted to do sign language.  We also know that he was doing sign language in the movie.  But what was he saying???????
Does anyone remember the post about this showing the video?

Thank you for everything, Michael ..
ILYSM !
