Joburg moonwalk for Michael Jackson

Friday 3 July 2009, Joburg Michael Jackson fans came together at Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton to remember the time, celebrate the legend and give thanks to his spirit for the moves and music, even bringing along with them items of clothing and blankies for charity. 

It was a beautiful and touching tribute. Michael Jackson fans needed this more than I imagined, and I'm proud to have been a part of Joburg's tribute to late great King of Pop.

.... and it all started from a twitter conversation with some friends including the king of twitter; Suede.

Next stop - 29 August 2009. Even bigger and better dance like, dress like, remember MJ celebration....
