Bittersweetness: Michael Jackson’s ATV Music Publishing

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.

His Divine Purpose: Michael Jackson

“I really
believe that God chooses people to do certain things, the way
Michelangelo or Leonardo da Vinci or Mozart or Muhammad Ali or Martin
Luther King is chosen. And that is their mission to do that thing. And
I think that I haven’t scratched the surface yet of what my real
purpose is for being here. I’m committed to my art. I believe that all
art has as its ultimate goal the union between the material and the
spiritual, the human and the divine. And I believe that that is the
very reason for the existence of art and what I do. And I feel
fortunate in being that instrument through which music flows….Deep
inside I feel that this world we live in is really a big, huge,
monumental symphonic orchestra. I believe that in its primordial form
all of creation is sound and that it’s not just random sound, that it’s
music.

 You’ve
heard the expression, music of the spheres? Well, that’s a very literal
phrase. In the Gospels, we read, “And the Lord God made man from the dust of the earth and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul.” That breath of life to me is the music of
life and it permeates every fiber of creation. In one of the pieces of
the Dangerous album, I say: “Life songs of ages, throbbing in my blood,
have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood.” This is a very literal
statement, because the same new miracle intervals and biological
rhythms that sound out the architecture of my DNA also governs the
movement of the stars. The same music governs the rhythm of the
seasons, the pulse of our heartbeats, the migration of birds, the ebb
and flow of ocean tides, the cycles of growth, evolution and
dissolution. It’s music, it’s rhythm.

And my goal in
life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy
of divine union through my music and my dance. It’s like, my purpose,
it’s what I’m here for.”

Michael Jackson, Ebony Magazine, May 1992
