Last night after the high-pressure and sad task of reporting live on the passing of Michael Jackson with Angie Martinez and Funkmaster Flex, I went with Ang to celebrate the most powerful legacy of MJ…his music. Andre Harrell and Richie Akiva threw a Michael Jackson celebration with DJ Cassidy at 1Oak, and singer Robin Thicke and O’Neal McKnight added their spontaneous tributes…Credit the power of music, but we were there til 4am. Very cathartic.
(Thanks to Andre and Richie for taking such good care of us. And shoutout to Mr. Maurizio, in NYC via MIA…)
