In 2010 six of our young MJ's and the cast of THRILLER LIVE recorded this tribute to Michael Jackson. We will never forget how everyone connected to the show felt that evening when we heard the news that the King of Pop had passed away.
The Lyric Theatre in the West End became a shrine to Michael's memory with fans all over the world leaving messages, flowers and pictures. And the show itself, born out of love for Michael in 2006, became an everlasting dedication to his genius on stage, as well as the love he spread of it.
11 years have now passed since Michael left us, but the music and magical memories live on...
We hope you enjoy this version of SPEECHLESS, and from the cast, crew and creatives at Thriller Live, we look forward to one day touring again and sharing Michael's legacy around the world.
