On this day, 25-years ago, 27th November 1995, Michael Jackson released ‘Earth Song’, his best-selling single in the UK, which went on to top the charts for 6-weeks and claim the Christmas number one.
Michael said of the song's creation: "I remember writing 'Earth Song' when I was in Austria, in a hotel. And I was feeling so much pain and so much suffering of the plight of the planet Earth. And for me, this is Earth's Song, because I think nature is trying so hard to compensate for man's mismanagement of the Earth. And with the ecological unbalance going on, and a lot of the problems in the environment, I think earth feels the pain, and she has wounds, and it's about some of the joys of the planet as well. But this is my chance to pretty much let people hear the voice of the planet. And this is 'Earth Song'. And that's what inspired it."
It is truly an inspirational song, which is even more relevant today with everything going on around our planet and climate change.
The cast of Thriller Live, who enjoyed performing it every night on stage, recorded a cover version during lockdown, and you can enjoy the full amazing rendition here:

Thank you to the Black British Theatre Awards for recognising our journey and honouring us with this year’s Best Musical Production accolade 🙏🏽
Thriller Live has broken West End records and toured around the world where it has been seen by over 5 million people, but this is the very first time we have won any awards 🏆
We share this award with every single company member and creative ever involved in the show - from when it was first created back in 2006, to our West End premiere in 2009, to our last UK & European tour which was sadly halted earlier this year due to the pandemic.
Thank you to Michael Jackson for the magic and allowing us to share your legacy around the world 💫

VOTE FOR THRILLER! ❤️
The Black British Theatre Awards recognises and raises the profile of Black Britons who have contributed to this country’s artistic legacy and the impact made on an international level.

Nominations close 11pm on 3rd August:
The live music industry added £4.5bn to the economy in 2019 and supported 210,000 jobs across the country. Now, up to 50% of the live music industry's workforce is facing unemployment.
Without government aid and a defined timeline, the industry will continue to struggle and jobs will continue to be lost, leading to a catastrophic loss of skills.

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.
