There will be more added to the bill in the coming weeks

In a press release statement from Co-producer Erish Bergin and Host, “I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to the person who inspired me and a whole generation of performers. This even helps keep the music of Michael Jackson alive, while raising money to make sure music education stays alive in the schools of our community.”
In an interview with the other co-producer Steve Friess, “I’ve been a huge fan of the Michaels music since I was a child,” he went on to say, “We want to celebrate the music since over the past few years the negative media persona has led people away from his music.”
