Michael Jackson – Legacy & Tributes

One week ago, we marked a tragic day for the world as it lost one of its most influential soul and pop artists with the passing of Michael Jackson. Yet, it hit a little more close to home for the people of Detroit, especially those old enough to have been around when Studio A saw Michael and his siblings on a regular basis churning out the now-legendary Motown sound. Fusicology was there at the Motown Museum on W. Grand Blvd. as the crowd gathered well into the night last Thursday to celebrate the life and music of a cultural hero. | Photos c/o JayMo of DSE | Video c/o 6 Minutes TV Detroit

International DJ and music supervisor Garth Trinidad (KCRW and Entourage) was a featured guest on The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer., reflecting on the pop icon’s life and legacy. view it here
