The Michael Jackson European Convention

MJPortal is the co-organizer of the first ever "MICHAEL JACKSON EUROPEAN CONVENTION", a bright new idea of the organizers to give Michael Jackson fans the possibilty of meeting up and discussing various aspects of the artist's life and career from all possible standpoints.

On June 25th 2009 in the city of Los Angeles the whole world was shocked by the news of the death of this great artist. What the world does not know is what an incredible human being he was and how many altruistic gestures he made and initiated in his lifetime. So much has been written and said about Michael Jackson in the past few months that it seems the world is ackowledging his existence only becasue of his untimely death.

Despite the infinite number of tributes offered in his memory, what seems to be the most obvious and deafening silence is the almost complete absence in the world wide media of any reference to the deepest and most profound side of this artist which he himself tried his best to hide with his usual reserve, keeping it as private as possible.

Talking about this side of Michael Jackson and making people aware of the "other" Michael is the continuing theme that inspires the work of the Legend Music Awards - Jam Music Production Int. and MJPortal, the website dedicated to Michael Jackson.

This meeting will be the first of a series of yearly appointments with the sole purpose of completely "rehabilitating" the human being, before the artist, who has only too often been marred by vicious gossip with no real foundation to support that gossip.

Exclusive! Brian Oxman and Kathryn Milofsky will join the MJ European Convention

After a few days of phone calls and emails, we can confirm you that Brian Oxman, one of the lawyers who cracked the Michael Jackson molestation case in 2005, and Kathryn Milofsky, the American radio /tv producer reporter specialising in news arts and entertainment, will join us at the Michael Jackson European Convention.

Brian Oxman will do a 2 hour audio visual presentation, and will give us his perspective on his unique and special relationship with Michael Jackson. He represented Michael in the 2005 trial. It was Brian who cracked the case, and got Janet Arvizo prosecuted for welfare fraud.

He will give you the scoop on the battle over the will, and more importantly how the family feel,and why they are hell bent on seeking justice, to establish how and why Michael died, and that justice be served.

We’ve had plenty of time to get used to the fact that he’s gone and contemplate the value of his contributions to music, style, and pop culture, and Spike Lee wraps it all up for us with the video for “This Is It.” In a clip released over the Christmas holiday, director Spike Lee paid tribute to Michael Jackson's legendary career in the official video for the King of Pop's posthumous single, "This Is It."
