NEW ART PROJECT LETS FANS TAKE PART IN
MICHAEL JACKSON MEMORIAL
Nick Cannon pays tribute to Michael Jackson in a memorial portrait that fans can take part in. Read on for details...
A new museum piece called "The Tribute Portrait" has been created to celebrate the legacy of Jackson's humanitarian efforts. The artwork is comprised of hand-drawn dots that come together to form the image of the late pop star. Each dot in the portrait represents a person whose life was impacted by the singer and wishes to carry forward his mission to "Heal the World."
"I'm truly honored to be part of the Michael Jackson tribute portrait," Nick says. "If it wasn't for Michael Jackson, I wouldn't be an entertainer, I wouldn't be who I am today. I was inspired [by him] at a very young age ... he's truly the greatest entertainer ever."
As each new person signs up to add their dot, the artwork progresses. Participation is free at www.michaeljacksontributeportrait.com.
Currently, the dots in the portrait represent more than 250,000 people in more than 180 countries.
Watch the video to see Nick meet the artist, David Ilan, and add his dot to the portrait.
