'A Whisper from Behind the Curtain' - June 30, 2012

Read her "goodbye" blog post here.
Portrait Update - June 25, 2012
David has posted the most recent scan of the portrait here. As you can see from the scan, he's added much of Dangerous-Era MJ's hair, as well as a lot of detail to teen-aged Michael - check out younger MJ's t-shirt and neck! What you can't see from the latest scan is the incredible detail. One strand of hair can be thousands of dots! Check back to see future updates. Just as younger/teenager MJ has come a long way since the beginning, and the image continues to be filled in more and more, from face to T-shirt (and...hair!), so will Dangerous-Era MJ continue to develop on the canvas.
'Michael's Angels' Badges - June 8, 2012
Our current Michael’s Angels badges, the first of which has been active for more than 2 and a half years, will be retired at the end of this month (badges assigned to members will remain on their profiles). While the badges are being retired, the efforts to carry on Michael Jackson’s humanitarian legacy will not! We encourage you to continue to support the charities, programs and initiatives we’ve highlighted so far in our Michael’s Angels program. We encourage you to keep volunteering and supporting charities that speak to your heart. Keep helping others; keep protecting the planet; keep doing what you do to make the world a better place and being an example to others, encouraging them to help heal the world.
