The Radio station, along with its partners continues to pay respect to the ‘King of Pop’ after his death was confirmed today. HIT 95 FM has been urging fans from Delhi to celebrate the legacy left behind by the genius that was Michael Jackson, since this morning.
Mr. Atul Chaturvedi, Chief Operating Officer-Delhi, IDEA Cellular said, “We are shocked about this sad incidence in the history of World Music. We join Delhites and other fans of the King of Pop in paying tribute through ‘The Tribute Concert’ on HIT 95 FM”.
The radio station is paying tribute the way it knows best, by playing loud and clear the music that made the world move to Michael Jackson’s groove, and since the MJ experience is so personal for those who grew up with his music and his attitude, listeners are also being encouraged to share their fondest MJ memories.
“I grew up listening to him,” said RJ Sarthak. I was enamored…I even bunched up the white socks I used to wear, just like he did in those fantastic music videos, for Billie, Jean, Thriller, Bad, Black or White…and though musically times moved on, MJ has very much been an integral part of my music space.” He said he followed Jackson’s career right from the time the 12 year old made his mark with “The Jackson 5” .
“His music was happiness, fun times,” he said. “It makes you think about the good times.” Jackson changed the world of music. And it is only proper that a tribute to him be made as musical as possible.
The ‘IDEA Michael Jackson –The Tribute Concert’ will culminate with the 5 finalists performing at the Sports Bar, Central Mall Gurgaon on Sunday, June 28, 2009.
