Created: Tuesday, 06 September 2005

Michael Jackson to Record Hurricane Relief Song Fundraising Project titled:
“From the Gulf to the Gulf”

Within 24 hours, Mr. Jackson will be reaching out to other recording superstars asking that they join him in this project to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina


Washington, D.C. ……. In response to the widespread devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina, Recording Superstar Michael Jackson has been moved to pen a song, with the working title, “From the Bottom of My Heart.”

Hoping to rekindle the success of “We Are the World,” which he wrote and produced, and which raised millions of dollars for aid to Africa, Mr. Jackson will be enlisting, within the next 24 hours, the involvement of other recording superstars to join him in this project. It is his intention to record this record within the next two weeks.

“It pains me to watch the human suffering taking place in the Gulf Region of my country,” says Mr. Jackson. “My heart and prayers go out to every individual who has had to endure the pain and suffering caused by this tragedy. I will be reaching out to others within the music industry, to join me in helping to bring relief and hope to these resilient people who have lost everything.”

The song will be recorded on 2 Seas Records, a label owned by Prince Abdulla Hamad Alkhalifa of Bahrain. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Further details will follow.

This made me so happy. This shows once more what Michael Jackson is made of. Inside my heart I knew for a couple of days now that this would be so him, but I never quite dared to believe he would do it. Michael never stops giving. Michael's heart is really made of gold. And once more he brought me to tears...

I do pray that it will...Michael, the world is in you, you feel its each joy, suffering, its intensity and numbness...As you have said, you have the sense of world in you and you are her beloved child able to chase the blues away...

You are Happy to me, and your native land in dire need shall also be happy...

Personally, I don't feel it matters that much if it will be successful or not. Of course, it will certainly earn more money if it will, but I think its great anyhow.

Michael can't save the entire world, we all know he is a great humanitarian and wants peace worldwide. But I would prefer if Michael would stay low and to strike when the moment is right in the music scene, just my opinion

Michael can do what he wants. In case you hadn't noticed, theres been a massive hurricane and it's killed thousands of people, killed a whole city and many people are still dying and are without rescue. If Michael wants to do a song with other artists to HELP why the hell shouldn't he? Its a darn right good idea, these people need help. It's NOT about his career. It's NOT about making a 'strike' on the music scene. It's about raising money to help others. God damn.

Oh and he's not trying to save the entire world, so don't make another f*cking ignorant comment like that again. Every little helps dude.

somehow I knew that Michael would find a way to reach out to the Hurricane victims, because that's just the sweet kind of person he is. He never fails to reach out to people in times of need.

Wo somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed this moring, I was just saying my opinion as I stated perfectly clear... of course I know Michael is free to do what he wants, nobody can control him but that doesn't mean I'm not allowed to share my 2 cents. Hurricane's happen all over the world, not just in the USA, even though its sad to hear what happen so chill out, and relax cause you seem to be the one that is acting ignorant with such a rediculous angry reply for no reason.
