Michael’s Estate has donated $300,000 to three charities that have been severely impacted by the Coronavirus. MusicCares, Three Square, which is in Southern Nevada and deals with hunger and Broadway Cares, have all received a donation of $100,000 each.
John Branca and John McClain, the co-executors of Michael’s Estates said of their donation; “This virus strikes at the heart of the communities we are close to. We learned today that the legendary Manu Dibango (who was a big influence on Michael’s song ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’) passed away from the virus. 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. Michael’s spirit of generosity and helping others during his lifetime is legendary. These donations are inspired by him.”
