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."

Michael Jackson Heal The Kids Speech

Carnegie Hall New York  14 February 2001

"I would like to welcome you to Carnegie Hall, the world's most famous concert hall to hear an entirely different kind of music, a loftier melody. It's a more eternal song.

There are two kinds of music. One comes from the strings of a guitar, the other from the strings of the heart. One sound comes from a chamber orchestra, the other from the beating of the heart's chamber. One comes from an instrument of graphite and wood, the other from an organ of flesh and blood. This loftier music I speak of tonight is more pleasing than the notes of the most gifted composers, more moving than a marching band, more harmonious than a thousand voices joined in hymn and more powerful than all the world's percussive instruments combined. That sweet sound of love.

Just a generation ago, it was this sound that could be heard in every turn in every town. It was the sound of love that echoed in the living room when a father giggled with his son or a mother tickled a small infant child. It was the sound of love that echoed from children's literary classics as the parents read children dreamy tales before they went to bed. And it was the sound of love that reverberated in their dinner conversations. Between parents and children, not just once a year over turkey and stuffing but everyday for peace and prosper.

Sadly, that sound has become a lost melody, a forgotten refrain, an empty tune and all we have in its place today is a dark and terrible noise. Instead of dinner conversations, there is the noise of video games. Instead of homework there is the din of the evening news. And instead of regular conversations between parents and children about drugs and violence, there is the deafening sound of silence.

Who among us would have believed that the sound of children at their playgrounds would be replaced by the sound of automatic machine-gun fire at our schools? That the sound of little girls skipping rope would be overshadowed by the frantic squeals of children dodging bullets? Yet, instead of loving our children more, we install metal detectors in our schools.

Are we blind to the fact that our children are raging against the indifference, crying out against the abandonment or thundering against the neglect?

'Heal The Kids' is about doing something, about making a difference and trying to help adults and parents realize that it's in our power to change the world that our children live in. As a wise man once said, "If not us, then who; if not now, when?"

My friends, with two children of my own, I know what it means to have to balance the demand of family and career -- let's not even talk about finding a date for myself, even though Rabbi Shmuley keeps telling me he's going to find me the perfect woman. My response is, "As long as it's not a journalist."

But learning how to strike this very necessary balance is what this special evening is all about. In three weeks time, at Oxford University I will be delivering an address with strong implications for dealing with the parent-child relationship and it's an address that is certain to surprise you. Until then, I want to thank you all for coming out, showing your love. And I want to offer a couple of special thank-yous. I'm overjoyed that we have 100 New York City teachers with us. I want to thank Steven Shaunfeld, he's a wonderful, wonderful man. Everything he does for 'Heal the Kids' is just incredible.

Together we can make a change for the better; together we can heal the world and make it a better place. God bless you all, I love you all."


"I love you too! (In response to the fans' screaming)

I want to thank you for participating. I truly hope that the thoughts expressed tonight will inspire all of us to love our children with all our hearts and souls. I would now like to take a moment to express my thanks to our participants. God Bless you all and I hope to see you at Oxford."
