I wanted to thank everyone who's watched and shared Tweetin' Donald so far! Since our launch on a week ago, we've had over 3,000 hits on YouTube! If you haven't watched it yet, now is the time. If you have, watch it again! ;-)
Today is the 10th anniversary of the passing of the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson. I loved Michael and had the amazing opportunity to meet him twice. I mourn the loss of a great American artist and humanitarian.
When I think of Michael Jackson, I don't only think about arguably the greatest entertainer who has ever lived. I also think about the humanitarian who contributed an estimated $300 million dollars to charities, and who, when on tour, would often visit as many children's hospitals as he gave performances. Michael's commitment to people and the planet, as well as his music, inspire me to this day.
If you want to be a little sad, but also smile, please take a look at this live in studio performance from me 10 years ago:
The "Tweetin' Donald" music video short is 95% complete, and it looks fantastic.
The track is blistering, with amazing guitar work, and I'm really happy with the vocals as well. Our puppeteers did the most fantastic job, and the song and video really sparkle! The director, Ben Bogard, and I are working on the final cut and release date! More updates very soon! It is not too late to contribute and help produce this project. If you would like to be a backer, or have a question about this, please reply to this email me and say "I want to help make 'Tweetin' Donald' a reality!" I promise you... THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
