Michael Jackson Fans of New York Salute Siedah Garrett

Picture
During April of 2012 - MJfansNY - threw Siedah Garrett a Birthday Party. It was an memorable afternoon filled with wonderful Michael memories.
Now, we would like to help Siedah's dream become reality - please support her kick starter project "Behind the Man in the Mirror."

A one-woman stage play by Siedah Garrett sharing her journey from a child with a dream, to writing for and touring with Michael Jackson.

"Siedah Garrett: Behind The Man In The Mirror" is an autobiographical theatrical one-woman show featuring both the dynamic singing and the humorous, emotional storytelling of Grammy Award Winner and two-time Oscar Nominated Singer/Songwriter Siedah Garrett. Siedah's duet with Michael Jackson, "I Just Can't Stop Loving You", became a #1 single worldwide, and Siedah is best known for co-writing one of the greatest songs in pop music history, "Man In The Mirror". 

"Man In The Mirror" has made such an astounding impact on the lives of so many people, that, 25 years later, Siedah continues to receive countless interview requests and questions from MJ fans, to share her story about writing the song and touring with the King of Pop.

"Siedah Garrett: Behind The Man In The Mirror" chronicles Siedah's journey from her early childhood in the low-income neighborhoods of Watts and Compton California, to meeting her mentor Quincy Jones, and through Quincy her remarkable association with Michael Jackson transformed her career. Siedah's performance of her extraordinary life story will include an amazing beautiful visual presentation of never-before-seen photos and rare videos.

It is our intention to launch a city-by-city tour in the US in the fall of this year, with additional shows in foreign territories while Siedah travels as a performing member of Quincy Jones' 80th Birthday Concert Tour.

We have reserved a private room for MJFansofNY - with a bar. The management of Big Apple Karaoke, have stocked their playlist with many, many Michael Jackson songs .
As in all of the events of MJ Fans of NY - we will give back to our community, in our continuing effort to honor Michael’s legacy of humanitarian giving. 
For this event, we are partnering with Volunteers of America’s Operation BackPack.
Thousands of homeless children go back to school without the basic supplies they need. Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack provides school supplies and backpacks to children in need across the country.
One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it has on a child's education. There are thousands of school-age children living in New York City homeless shelters on any given day. Without our help, most of these children would go back to school in September without the basic school supplies they need to succeed.
Please consider donating a filled backpack or two. If you have children of your own, consider engaging them in the process.  They are happy to accept full backpacks, empty backpacks and extra school supplies – whatever works best for you.

MJfansNY Pay tribute to Michael and to Remember 9/11 
and then, the miracles came...

Picture

MELLIE'S BLOG: 
This event was supposed to happen on August 28th - to celebrate Michael's Birthday but clearly... God, Hurricane Irene and Michael had other plans for us.







On Sept.10th - Michael Jackson Fans of NY came together to Celebrate Michael Birthday, to raise awareness for 2 charities - Shannon's Share and the UNICEF African Relief Effort!   The place was the Riverwalk Grille on Roosevelt Island, NYC 
We were honored to have the cast of the Lion King join us and they helped to encourage people to "GET SWABBED" for Shannon's Share , to  register to be a bone marrow donor, in the hope they can help someone's life.

We sang, we danced ,we brunched,  we laughed ,we cheered our "LIL MJ (JUAN)as he entertained the people in the restaurant and those just walking by, and there were   "Michael" themed Raffle Prizes and  tickets to Broadway's Lion King, Restaurant Gift Certificates, MICHAEL Cds and Michael DVDs etc...

 We cheered when Tribute Performance Artist , Dominique performed a rousing rendition of Billie Jean!  

And then, we headed to the Waterfront - to pay tribute to the 10th Anniversary of 30th Anniversary Concert and to pay homage to those people who lost their lives in 9/11.


 The group stood along the waterfront along the Manhattan Skyline and sang " Heal the World" and then all of a sudden- the sun came out , right after that another emotional moment , when each member of the group released.... white balloons in the sky, in remembrance for Michael and the 9/11 angels.  
Those glorious Balloons seemed to linger in the sky forever and climbed Higher and Higher! 
 It was an amazing gift to witness. 

And then the MIRACLE came-- 3 clouds appeared , 

one by one - a heart shaped cloud,
 then the letter "M" appeared 
and then,
 to make it real clear - that Michael was sending us a message - an image of MJ "posed on his toes"

There is  a quote from the movie "The Color Purple" that goes like this " I think it pisses God off when you walk by the colour purple in a field and don't notice it. "  

And it occurred to me what a blessing that moment was for all of us. 
Those 3 clouds were there to be noticed and received by all of us.
 A gift and a blessing. 
I am so honored and happy that I was there to witness it.

 A miracle from Michael.


In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. 
In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” ....MICHAEL JACKSON 


***Many fans know that Michael, in the wake of the 9-11 attacks, paid for hotels for fans stranded in NYC , he also arranged for buses to take fans out of NYC and to take them safely home.

Come have brunch with the Michael Jackson Fans of New York City!
Help us spread Michael's message of LOVE!


DATE: Feb 12 Noon to 4pm
PLACE: Riverwalk Bar and Grille- Roosevelt Island NY 
Directions : http://riverwalkbarandgrill.com/location.php

TO RSVP - CLICK HERE > PAJAMA PROGRAM BRUNCH




We are asking everyone that live in NYC or close to NYC that can participate in this worthy cause to join us on February 12 at the Riverwalk Cafe to drop off a pair of Pajamas and/or a Book for a child in need
The Riverwalk Cafe has offered their restaurant as a drop off site. 
The Restaurant is also participating in this event by asking their patrons and residents to donate the same item(s) as we are. 
Please join us for our First Legacy of L.O.V.E. project for 2011 as we continue to honor Michael.

Pajama Program, a 501(c)(3) charity, provides new pajamas and new books to needy children, many of whom are waiting and hoping to be adopted. Many of these youngsters have been abused or abandoned and in many cases, have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a loving mother or father tuck them in at bedtime. Through the Pajama Program, we hope to contribute to a warmer, more loving environment for children when they are at their most vulnerable.
As of January 2010 Pajama Program has given away more than 500,000 pairs of pajamas and 200,000 books! Click here to see where we’re at now! But we need more help - this is where you come in!
It’s simple to have a Pajama Drive or Event.
Here’s all you need to keep in mind:
1. Pajamas need to be new, unused, and a complete set or nightgown. Here’s what a prominent physician has to say about this:
"The clothing a child spends 8-10 hours sleeping in is important to a child's well-being. New pajamas are a necessary part of promoting good health and preventing infections and disease, as well as providing psychological benefits."

Sheldon H. Cherry, MD
Clinical Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology
Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, NYC 


2. Decide for which age range you want to collect new pajamas and new books:
a) for all ages, Infant – 17 yrs old
b) for children from Infant – 5 yrs old
c) for children 5yrs old – 12 yrs old
d) for teenage children ages 13-17 (Adult sizes Small to XXXL!)
