Choral Music from MICHAEL JACKSON

Moonwalking%20MJWith the loss of musical icon Michael Jackson in June (check out our previous blog for information on his amazing career), publishers across the country have been working hard to produce new arrangements of his music. Here are a few of the newest selections for choir:

THRILLER
Teachers have been calling and asking us for an arrangement of Thriller for years, and now it’s finally here! Using sound effects, horror film motifs and music video as a promotional tool, the choreography on the song has been replicated the world over, cementing Jackson’s appeal as a global pop culture icon.

GONE TOO SOON
Michael Jackson originally recorded this beautiful, heartfelt song as a touching tribute to Ryan White, a young man who became infected with HIV from a contaminated blood treatment. A portion of the profits and royalties from the sale of this publication will be donated to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

HEAL THE WORLD
This moving song from Michael Jackson’s hit album Dangerous encourages all of us to make our world “a better place for you and for me and the entire human race.” Originally released in 1991, the message still rings true today. Sung as the closing number at Jackson’s memorial service on July 7, 2009.

WILL YOU BE THERE
Featuring an infectious groove, this popular single from Michael Jackson’s Dangerous album also won the 1994 MTV Movie Award for “Best Song in a Movie” as the main theme featured on the Free Willy soundtrack.

And two brand-new medleys: Rock With You – A Tribute to Michael Jackson (includes Got to Be There, I’ll Be There, Man in the Mirror, Rock With You, Say Say Say, Thriller, and We Are the World) and Michael Jackson: A Musical Tribute (includes Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough, Bad, The Way You Make Me Feel, Beat It, and Wanna Be Startin’ Something’).  Both are sure to be show choir extravaganzas!

  1. MJ was the king of pop. I have grown up hearing his songs and music. The void which he has created in the music world will remain with music lovers for the next several years

    thanks, Jim

  2. Is there any possibility that there is an arrangement for SAB, SSA, TTB, or SATB of Micheal Jackson’s song Black or White? I have been looking for one ever since his death.

    I think is would be a great piece to do some riser Choreography with two-toned black and white gloves.

    Thanks for your help.
