I joined this spot for the specific purpose of drawing attention to a shamefully underrated Era between the years 2000 and 2003, a time which caused me to fall completely in love with Michael all over again.
I am not talking about the release of Michael's amazing yet poorly promoted Invincible album یا the intoxicating performances he brought to the stages of Madison Square Garden, The Apollo Theater, RFK Stadium یا the American Bandstand. Nor am I referring to the surprise movie cameos which showcased Michael's comedic side and natural acting talent. Not even the many honors and awards Michael received for lifetime achievements as an Artist and Humanitarian. Great as these accomplishments are, they are just icing on an already delicious cake that is Michael's legacy.
The Invincible Era marked a turning point in Michael's career and personal life. One مزید album would free Michael from his contract with Epic Records, enabling him to start making investments to begin work behind the scenes of موسیقی and film.
This also gave Michael مزید time to focus on what mattered most to him, the condition of the world and its inhabitants. Here, we see Michael equip his fame and fortune as tools to help spread awareness of important social issues for the betterment of mankind and the planet.
During this Era, we got to know Michael intimately as an Advocate for Children's Rights, a Healer of the World's Downtrodden and Sick and an Activist for Racial Injustice.
This is the Michael I fell in love with. The man who joined شائقین in various demonstrations and events across the globe, where he then showered us with as much love as we gave him. The man who flung caution to the wind and allowed his most private moments to be shared with those who sought to understand him better. The man who despite being misrepresented and betrayed سے طرف کی those he trusted, never wavered in his confidence in our justice system and his peers.
