I really like this. Its not just for a good cause, its actually a great song.

On a related note, MJ continues to post chart records. From HitsDailyDouble:

In death, Michael Jackson kicked some life into the music business.

The King of Pop would be pleased to see three of his Epic albums make history this week, as Thriller, Essential and Number Ones land in the first three positions on the HITS Album sales chart, all scoring over 100k.

It’s the first time ever that one catalog title, let alone three, sold more than any currently released album during a single week. The closest call previously was February 2008, when Sony Legacy’s 25th anniversary reissue of Thriller finished #2 with 157k to Jack Johnson’s chart-topping Sleep Through the Static, which nabbed 170k in its second week.

In all a total of nine Jackson-related albums (including eight Epic solo albums and one Jackson 5 collection on Motown) made the Top 50, including Off the Wall (#14), Bad (#25), Jackson 5’s Ultimate Collection (#26), Dangerous (#32), Ultimate Collection (#35) and HIStory: Greatest Hits Vol. 1 (#39).
