The #Legend Continues…

Initially, the news broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes.
He worked so hard and suffered so much for it.
What a great investment it was.
He said he would never sell it…and HE never did. But he is no longer here.
So perhaps cashing out is for the best now, nearly seven years after his passing. His children will all be grownups soon and I can’t help but to think that he would not want them to have to carry the burden that goes along with being co-owners of the largest music publishing catalogue in the world; though it was one he proudly and bravely carried himself for various reasons, including as a business example to other artists.
Music History will forever have to acknowledge the fact that Sony/ATV came to be because of Michael Jackson, the investment and deal he was wise enough to make.
Rest easy Michael.
