Michael Jackson Memorial – Nashville
Jul 8th, 2009

My social networking family knows that I have been on the lookout for some sort of MJ vigil, tribute, or memorial in Nashville. I mean, we are Music City. I got a Facebook message from a friend yesterday, which took me to a link on Nashville Cream, stating that the Belcourt Theater was going to present the memorial broadcast for free.
That’s where I spent my lunch break. There were only a few of us there, but as I was walking in, I saw people leaving. I’m sure people came and went according to their schedule over the two hour service.
It was very touching and hopeful, but also surreal. I thought about times where people all over the world gathered in their living rooms anticipating the premiere of a new Michael Jackson video…now the same thing was going on – only this time it was his funeral. I loved how the memorial took a look at the big picture and slapped us all in the face with how much MJ truly united the world. It’s nice to see some respect granted. I’m sure Michael is at peace now.
I can go on and on about my memories and thoughts on MJ’s life (and I already did @ chrystalball.blogspot.com), but I’d rather hear what other fans have to say about Michael Jackson. I hope to see some comments, and maybe even some video responses on the YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/youtellconcerts).
For the Nashville fans, The Mercy Lounge booked “Who’s Bad?,” a Michael Jackson tribute band, early this year for a November date. Keep an eye out for that! See you there!
