JACKSON ESTATE DONATES TO MUSICARES, B'WAY

The Michael Jackson Estate is donating $300,000 to coronavirus response efforts, assisting Broadway Cares, the southern Nevada largest hunger-relief org Three Square Food Bank  and MusiCares.

Each will receive a $100,000 donation.  

 “This virus strikes at the heart of the communities we are close to,” said John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson. “We learned today that the legendary Manu Dibango passed away from the virus. Other performers and support staff in music and on Broadway are sick or have been left without work and are facing an uncertain future.

“And in Las Vegas, which has been so welcoming to Michael Jackson, the entire city has been shut down leaving thousands of workers and their families devastated and without an income.

 “Michael’s spirit of generosity and helping others during his lifetime is legendary. These donations are inspired by him.”

In New York, where the Estate is currently in production on MJ the Musical with Lia Vollack Productions, the Estate is answering the challenge made by more than 20 Broadway producers who are matching up to $1m in donations.

In Las Vegas, the Estate’s donation will provide 300,000 meals to the needy, and help to maintain Three Square Food Bank’s supplies.

“MusiCares is very grateful for the outpouring of generosity we’ve seen from many in the music industry to grow the COVID-19 Relief Fund,” said MusiCares Chair Steve Boom.
