EVENT – In the Studio With MJ (Orlando, Feb. 08, 2014)

sundbergorlando01

Four studio albums.  Countless sessions.  Video mixes.  Dance mixes.  Three world tours.  A ranch called « Neverland. »  This was Brad Sundberg’s life and career for nearly 18 years, working closely with the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.  This is your chance to hear of the music, the stories behind the music, and what it was like to be a part of Michael’s team.  This is a one-of-a-kind music, photo and video-filled seminar.

Brad had the opportunity to work closely in the studio and at Neverland Valley Ranch with Michael Jackson.  He was Michael’s technical director and one of the engineers on four studio albums including « Bad », « Dangerous », « HIStory », and « Blood On The Dancefloor. »  (Michael even gave Brad the nickname « Really, Really Brad ».)  These mammoth projects (including production, tour-prep and countless remixes) took upwards of 16 months each.  You will see and hear what it was like to be in the studio with Michael and the team of engineers and producers who created these songs, through a carefully crafted timeline of music, video and behind-the-scenes info.  From « Captain Eo » to « Man In The Mirror » to « Smile », Brad was there, and you will hear about the production process.

Special Guest Matt Forger will be joining Brad for this amazing event.  Matt brings a wealth of knowledge as he was there for Thriller and he completely recorded and mixed Captain EO!  Brad and Matt have been friends for many years, and Matt has agreed share his stories and insights, particularly on the Captain EO project.

Brad and Matt, together in a seminar for the first time ever.  No script, no second-hand stories – these guys were there, and they are very excited to share their stories, music and home-videos.  You do not want to miss this!

If you are a fan of Michael’s music, or are curious about how those albums were recorded and the staggering amount of tapes, tracks and time invested, you will want to attend « In The Studio With MJ. »

Details:  The event will be offered on February 8, 2014, at 12:00 PM .  There are a limited number of tickets available, and the seminar will include a catered dinner with Brad and Matt.  This will include one of Michael’s favorite « Family Friday Dinners », and give you extra time to ask questions and hear a bit more about their time working together.

Note that cell phones, video and audio recorders of any kind will not be permitted into the event, but may be checked at the door.

In the unlikley event that the seminar is cancelled, ticket price will be refunded.

Michael Jackson Fans! – Be A Part of the First Michael Jackson We Are One Worldwide Birthday Celebration, Thursday, August 29, 2013

Share Your Instagram Photos & Videos All Day on Michael Jackson Birthday Global Map

 

Michael Jackson fans around the planet who are unable to attend the special performance of Michael Jackson ONE (https://www.facebook.com/events/627774083908425/) in Las Vegas celebrating the King of Pop’s birthday can still participate in an unprecedented global event honoring Michael starting at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, August 29 during the first ever Michael Jackson We Are One Worldwide Birthday Celebration (http://birthday.michaeljackson.com).

 

Michael Jackson believed that all humans are unique and equal, regardless of race or culture, and that working together as one will make for a better world.  His message was one of unity, harmony and hope. What better way to honor Michael on his birthday than by spreading his message and posting a short video expressing hope for making the world a better place.

 

This worldwide event begins at the international dateline in the first time zones (Kiribati Island and New Zealand), then rolls around the world before ending at midnight in the last time zones (Hawaii and American Samoa). Fans will have the opportunity all day to create and share their Instagram photos and videos honoring Michael with their ideas for a better world and recognizing this special day.

 

Throughout the day, a Michael’s We Are One worldwide map will display the thoughts and wishes expressed by fans for a better world, linking together the international #MJWeAreOne as a true global community.

 

Fans are encouraged to post their Instagram videos and pictures with the #MJWeAreOne hashtag to take part in the international celebration of Michael’s birthday.

Michael Jackson ONE, which premiered on June 29, is a new immersive music experience which is the second collaboration between The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil. The critically acclaimed production is in permanent residence at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The previous collaboration between The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil—the Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour concert experience–was one of the world’s top-grossing tours in 2012 and is now playing to sold-out arenas in Asia.

 

Since Michael Jackson was a multifaceted artist who strove to fuse together various musical styles and art forms, Michael Jackson ONE is a fitting title for a unifying journey into the creative world of the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.  But it was actually chosen as the show’s title because it expresses Michael’s philosophy of love, hope and peace: « We Are One.

Please note, the site will only go live when the online event starts, at 12 a.m. on August 29 at the international dateline, and will not be live before.
