The Michael Jackson estate announced that it is donating $300,000 to Broadway Cares, Three Square Food Bank and MusiCares to help entertainment industry workers on Broadway, the music business and the people in Las Vegas who are affected by COVID-19.
“This virus strikes at the heart of the communities we are close to,” John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson, said in a statement.
Citing the death of the legendary Cameroonian musician Manu Dibango due to coronavirus, they said, “Other performers and support staff in music and on Broadway are sick or have been left without work and are facing an uncertain future”.
“And in Las Vegas, which has been so welcoming to Michael Jackson, the entire city has been shut down leaving thousands of workers and their families devastated and without an income,” they added.
The donations offered are inspired by Michael’s spirit of generosity, according to the Estate.
