Michael Jackson Heals the Kids Singer launches children's foundation
by Christina Saraceno February 15 2001
Michael Jackson made an appearance at New York's Carnegie Hall on Valentine's Day to launch the Heal the Kids Foundation. Jackson is chairman of the organization, whose purpose is "promoting nurturing relationships between parents and children and fostering programs that help all children gain the love, attention and quality time they deserve." Jackson co-founded the organization with Heal the Kids' President Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
"[The organization] is trying to help adults and parents realize it's in our power to change the world our children live in," Jackson told the crowd at Carnegie Hall. The organization has plans to launch television advertisements with celebrities discussing the importance of family dinners. Heal the Kids will also start a book club to encourage parents to read to their children at night.
On March 6th, Jackson is scheduled to speak on "child welfare" and further explain the Foundation's goals at Oxford University's famed Oxford Union Society debating hall where everyone from Nobel Prize Winning author Toni Morrison to Ben Affleck to O.J. Simpson have spoken.
Jackson has two kids of his own with ex-wife Debbie Rowe, three-year-old Prince Michael Jr., and two-year-old Paris. In 1993, a twelve-year-old boy accused Jackson of sexually molesting him. The singer denied the accusations but settled out of court for an undisclosed sum said to be in excess of twenty-five million dollars.
Devotees Greet Michael Jackson At New York Appearance
Fans Travel From Japan, Europe by Crey Moss February 15 2001
The message was Heal the Kids, but at least one teen fainted when Michael Jackson made a rare public appearance Wednesday at Carnegie Hall.
Jackson was in New York City launching his Heal the Kids campaign, a charity to boost children's welfare, but the appearance was also a chance for Jackson's fans to show they still worship him.
According to Reuters, fans traveled from as far as Japan and Europe to see Jackson, whose speech was frequently interrupted by shouts of "I love you." Hundreds of screaming fans — many dressed in Jackson outfits — rushed the stage to touch the singer after his speech. A 19-year-old student from Berlin fainted when Jackson took a poster from her.
Jackson, whose failed marriages to Lisa Marie Presley and Deborah Rowe (the mother of his two children) and child-molestation allegation have been widely exposed, said a generation that nurtured children a decade ago is now clouded with a "dark and terrible noise." Heal the Kids will help "adults and parents realize it's in our power to change the world our children live in," Jackson added.
Jackson, 42, said he would talk more about balancing love and family when he speaks March 6 in England at Oxford University's famed Oxford Union debating hall.
Jackson's panel at the Heal the Kids event included lawyer Johnnie Cochran, professor of psychiatry Dr. Stanley Greenspan, TV personality Mother Love, Dr. Drew Pinsky (of "Loveline" fame), publisher Judith Regan and "Temptation Island" host Mark L. Walberg, all of whom addressed the difficulties of balancing family and career. Walberg filled in for Chuck Woolery after the game-show host pulled out of the event at the last minute.
Heal the Kids is a branch of the Heal the World Foundation, which Jackson founded last year with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the author of "Kosher Sex" and "Dating Secrets of the Ten Commandments," according to Reuters. Jackson is scheduled to release his first album in a decade this summer. R&B hitmaker Rodney Jerkins, R. Kelly and former Jodeci member DeVante have produced tracks for the as-yet-untitled project (see "Michael Jackson Nearing Completion Of New LP").
Greatest Hits HIStory Volume 1, a re-release of disc one from 1995's History: Past, Present and Future — Book 1 with new artwork and a 28-page color booklet, will hit stores on February 27. The 15 remastered hits on the album include "Billie Jean," "Beat It" and "Thriller."
