Brad Sundberg’s “In the Studio with MJ” – Toronto is fast approaching. We still have tickets left to this once in a lifetime experience. Toronto will be the only place in Canada that Brad will be bringing this seminar and we are fortunate to have him here. Toronto is a great city with so much to do, a brand new aquarium, sports, opera, ballet, museums and art galleries and home of the Tiff Bell Lightbox and the Toronto International Film Festival, second only to Cannes. It is well worth a weekend trip if you can. If you live in Toronto or the GTA all the better, it’s a car drive away also the studio is close to transit. If you wish to purchase tickets you can do so here.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Oct. 24, 2013 – LOS ANGELES, Calif. —
We are a group of very concerned Michael Jackson fans. We are uniting out of our respect for Michael Jackson and his legacy. He was a global superstar and while he should be remembered for his artistry, he should also be remembered for his humanitarianism. Of equal importance was his love for his own children and his loyal fans. These are the things an individual like Michael Jackson should be remembered for… not the tragic manner in which he was taken from us.
The man responsible for taking Michael away from his children, family, and fans, Conrad Murray is scheduled to be released from jail in a matter of days. Murray is now a convicted felon, who was put in handcuffs and taken to jail moments after his manslaughter conviction. Michael Jackson’s fans from all over the globe are steadfast in our belief that Conrad Murray should not be allowed to profit from his criminal negligence, which resulted in the death of another human being. A human being beloved by millions all over the world.
We are reaching out to all media outlets, broadcasters, public relations organizations, and publishers, in an attempt to encourage them not to give Murray a platform to profit or exploit the life and/or death of Michael Jackson. Murray has shown absolutely no remorse for his crime and accepts no responsibility for his egregious actions and negligence. Instead, he continues to re-victimize Michael Jackson and his children. Murray continues through his agents and through jail house interviews to shift the blame post-conviction to his victim. In a reckless and thoughtless act, Murray released a taped message to Michael’s daughter, Paris. In this act he has demonstrated his selfishness and heartlessness towards the very child he left orphaned by his criminality.
We are determined to hold any organizations accountable for any/and all partnerships with Murray. If necessary, we will reach out to advertisers, sponsors and community organizations, to prevent Murray from profiting. Murray should not be given any platforms to spread ‘his truth’ especially since he refused to tell ‘his truth’ under oath. Our fight for justice for a just man such as Michael knows no limits. We believe that all media outlets should respect the fact that Michael Jackson is no longer here to defend himself against any allegations, and let this man, who millions love and continue to mourn, finally rest in peace.

“In the Studio with MJ” seminar scheduled in Toronto on November 23, 2013
Toronto, Canada – “In the Studio with MJ” is pleased to present a first-person seminar offering an in-depth perspective on working with Michael Jackson in the recording studio and at his amazing residence, Neverland Valley Ranch. The seminar will take place on November 23, 2013, at D. C. Studios. The seminar lasts approximately six hours, and includes dinner (optional) based on Michael’s weekly album tradition of “Family Friday Dinner.”.
Brad Sundberg, a voting member of the Grammys, fills the seminar with music, videos, personal behind-the-scenes stories and photos. It is a very unique opportunity for people interested in the music industry, and in Michael Jackson in particular, to see, hear and learn what it was like to work side-by-side with a true music legend.
“The seminars were born out a desire from Michael Jackson’s fans to know more about how these incredible projects came to life”, says Brad Sundberg, seminar host/presenter. “People want to go back to the music, to where it all began – in the studio. His creative process was unlike anything I have ever been a part of, and if I can give people just a glimpse of what it was like, that’s very rewarding. And that same creative nature wasn’t just used in the studio; he brought several people together, including me, to build his dream home, Neverland. In it’s day, Neverland was one of the most beautiful places you could imagine.”
Among other topics, the seminar will detail how songs went from the original demo to the album version. Following that, many of the songs were edited, remixed and restructured for various dance mixes, short films and live tours. Brad will explain and demonstrate how the songs changed and progressed along the way. Sundberg’s primary title with the team was Technical Director, and his journey took him through Captain EO, Bad, Dangerous, HIStory and Blood On The Dance Floor. At Michael’s request, Brad also joined the Neverland Valley Ranch team where he was instrumental in designing custom music and video systems at one of the most recognized homes on the planet. From studio to tour prep to ranch, Brad was there and will take you along for the ride.
In June 2013, Brad presented the “In the Studio with MJ” seminar in New York City. In August it was in Orlando, and in October it was presented in Paris and Stockholm. Attendees comment on their experience:
“In the Studio with MJ” is worth every penny. The most amazing experience. So glad to meet Brad! Go to his seminar! Thrilling!” – Jared B.
“This seminar is a unique and exciting opportunity for fans to get to know Michael the artist, as well as Michael the person. You will never hear his music the same way again!” -Tarin C.
“I cannot thank you enough for all the gems and treasures you shared with us. You have no idea how much it means. I truly liked the pace of the seminar, and the un- scripted parts. You did a fantastic job and made us feel part of that team which created those projects. You made me feel at home and very comfortable. It was like going to a music school, as it was the real deal of how the songs and artistry come about. Thank you! Thank you! And Thank You!!” -Gaston F.
“Forget the media circus, forget the fame and fortune that surrounded the name. If you want to get to know Michael Jackson the man and his genius while at work this seminar is not to be missed. This is a priceless experience that you will never forget.” -Kat C
“I have discovered a warm-hearted human being with a great sense of sharing and humility. Thank you so much, I will treasure this day in my memory and in my heart forever.” – Virginia R
After Toronto Sundberg plans on bringing the seminar to groups in New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo in 2014. “We have interested groups in Brazil, UK, Germany and Russia. The response has been amazing!”

Webster’s definition of defamation is as follows: def·a·ma·tion noun \ˌde-fə-ˈmā-shən\ : the act of saying false things in order to make people have a bad opinion of someone or something : the act of defaming someone or something.
Recently, the heartless Taj Malik has been tweeting/posting crude comments and blogs about certain individuals in justice groups on a personal level. Members of these justice groups who are being defamed are the same people who have fought extremely hard keeping Michael Jackson’s reputation, humanitarianism, and most of all, his love in the forefront before anything else. They keep many in the MJ family interested and informed. They are what I like to call the “go to people”. When any information is needed or any questions answered concerning Michael’s life, words, artistry, etc. I go directly to their TL. They spend hours transcribing trial information (no purchase necessary) interviews, speeches and even depositions to keep all of us informed, all the while keeping MJ’s love and light first and foremost. They deserve our loyalty and respect in return for their hard work on Michael’s behalf. Many of them spend hours reading through court documents just so the rest of us can understand the legal jargon and take part in what is happening in MJ’s world. It is all done with positivity, not hatred, yet they are the ones being slandered and defamed.
I find it astonishing that this woman has such avid followers who retweet their hatred and then participate in anti-defamation groups who are professing that slander is wrong and feel a law needs to be in place for this. How can people who retweet and agree with these snakes on one side and then retweet and support anti-defamation on the other justify what they are doing? Calling people “fake fans” (I have tried to find what the true definition of that is for years) is not going to make anyone listen to what they have to say. How can these slanderers who post personal information including names, addresses, phone numbers, even personal photos of their family members along with innocent babies (Michael would be so proud) think this is ethical?
SGAA ‘s main goal is to try bring awareness to the defamation, slander and abuse not only on radio, TV and newspapers but also on the social media. I am seeing now as time goes by, how the social media can be used as a weapon. It doesn’t have a bullet or a blade but it still has the power to destroy others by the press of a key. I sometimes wonder if MJ was alive today would the same thing be happening to him. Would these people who believed Michael was a pedophile before he passed be hacking into accounts and finding things out about him? I have a feeling the answer would be yes.
I truly believe an anti-defamation law is acquired across the globe, but I firmly believe you have to practice what you preach, you have to believe in what you are representing to others and not talk anti-defamation out of one side of your mouth and defame others out of the other. If one follows this this evil person who runs people off twitter and threatens them in vicious ways I would call it defamation, I think you would too? I feel as a reasonable human being I know the difference between right and wrong, good and bad, and I also know how and when to keep quiet. Well, I have been quiet for far too long. I feel there is an Armageddon approaching of sorts, one of such magnitude that the MJ community may never recover from. The disrespect and crudeness is alarming and I do not believe Michael would be pleased at what is going on in his name right now. I cannot open twitter without holding my breath before reading my TL. If someone is not ridiculing someone’s looks, or ethnicity they are fighting about AEG, the Jackson family, MJ3 or Michael himself.
When will it all end? Maybe it won’t. One can only pray that if Michael is watching us (and I truly believe he is) that his love can lead us in the right direction. Perhaps he is the only one that can stop it because I know he is in all our hearts, I believe that if we just stop with the hatred, hacking and hostility and let go of the heaviness in our hearts and focus on what Michael wanted most, to “Heal the World” and become one, his kind of love will spread.
How do you feel about technology like the internet and it’s effect on society?
Michael Jackson: I think it is wonderful. It is a wonderful way to correspond it’s growing and this is the tip of the iceberg. In the next year we will see some amazing growths in technology and I hope that I’m around to see it. I pray that we continue to serve the world in a positive way not a negative way and not hurt anyone because it is wonderful.
