Spike Lee Hosts Annual Michael Jackson Birthday Celebration

Brooklyn remembers the King of Pop on Aug. 29. Get the flyer.


Spike Lee is hosting the Second Annual "Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson Birthday Celebration." The event, which will be held Aug. 29 in the New York borough's Nethermead Field in Prospect Park, will feature the music of Michael Jackson in celebration of what would have been the King of Pop's 52nd birthday. A park full of people jamming to the sounds of Michael Jackson? Sounds like a good time to us.
