Lionel Richie Leads All-Star 'Idol' Rendition Of 'We Are The World' 18-05-'20

If you lived through the 80s, you’ll remember 'We Are The World' was just about the biggest number of them all. Featuring a “Dream Team” of pop stars, the song dropped in 1985 to shine a light on famine in Africa.

Written by Lionel Richie and the late Michael Jackson, the charity single ruled the Billboard Hot 100 for four successive weeks after its release, and an all-star Artists for Haiti remake in 2010 was also a hit.

Sunday night (May 17) during the American Idol finale, Richie assembled an all-star Idol lineup for a lockdown-era rendition of the blockbuster.

Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan are joined by his fellow judges, Richie led a cast that included 2020 winner Just Sam, Alejandro Aranda aka Scarypoolparty, Fantasia, Gabby Barrett, Jordin Sparks, Katharine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, Laine Hardy, Lauren Alaina, Phillip Phillips, Ruben Studdard and Scotty McCreery.

Rockin' Robin Single Cover'Rockin' Robin' Changing Hands. 15-05-'20

Reservoir, a New York based independent music rightsholder has acquired 16,000 copyrights songs by bringing Shapiro Bernstein into its portfolio.

What is that to do with MJ you might ask?

Shapiro Bernstein is holding the copyrights for one MJ song and multiple Jackson 5 songs: 'Rockin’ Robin' (MJ), 'Little Bitty Pretty One', 'If You Want Heaven' and 'Someone’s In My Love Light' are among them!

Shapiro Bernstein also have songs from The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Edith Piaf, Bob Dylan, Elton John and many more.

Shapiro Bernstein President Michael Brettler, the fourth-generation leader in the company’s history, said: "Since the beginning, my family has built and overseen a catalog of incredibly special songs and legendary songwriters that has stood the test of time. It is with enormous pride that we have found a partner in Reservoir, another family-owned, independent company, for the next chapter of this legacy."

It is unclear how much Reservoir has paid for the acquisition or what they are planning to do with the rights of those songs. We might hear 'Rockin’ Robin' in movies or adverts soon…

Michael Jackson Musical Delays Broadway Opening To Spring 2021. 13-05-'20

MJ Musical“MJ", the musical about the life and career of the late Michael Jackson, has pushed back its Broadway opening to spring of 2021. The move comes after the Great White Way extended its shutdown through Labor Day due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The show will now start preview performances on March 8, 2021, with an opening night scheduled for April 15 at Neil Simon Theatre. "MJ" was initially set to premiere on July 6, 2020.

Ticket buyers will immediately receive a refund for the performance.

Ephraim Sykes, who nabbed a Tony for 'Ain't Too Proud', will portray Jackson in the musical. "MJ" will feature classic Jackson songs like 'Beat It', 'Billie Jean', 'The Way You Make Me Feel', and 'Smooth Criminal'. The show was originally named 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough', but was changed to "MJ".

Lynn Nottage ('Ruined') wrote the book of the musical, while Christopher Wheeldon ('An American In Paris') will direct and choreograph.

Despite the recent child sexual abuse allegations against Jackson from Wade Robson and James Safechuck, detailed in the HBO documentary 'Leaving Neverland', the show will still go on. Jackson's family has denied the allegations. The legendary pop sensation died at the age of 50 in 2009.
