LAUREN’S INSPIRING MESSAGE OF HOPE FROM STAR JACKSON
Uri saves Michael!
Michael and Uri visit British parliament.
World famous Uri Geller the co-chairman of Exeter City had organized the event to include his friends Michael Jackson the King of Pop, David Blaine (known for his headline-making daring and death-defying feats of physical and emotional endurance) and also singer Patti Boulaye . During the journey on the train sick children were invited into Uri and Michaels compartment for a private audience, they emerged smiling and clutching autographs from the stars a short time after their arrival in Exeter; the stars gave the football club its biggest crowd in years as filling the stadium.
Michael Jackson- who had asked for his dressing room to be filled with flowers and kept at a temperature of exactly 74 degrees – arrived in a classic Bentley. Leaping from the vehicle, he paraded down a line of disabled children, gently placing his palm on their foreheads.
He then took to the stage and with a burst of giggles told the ‘wonderful people of Exeter’ how delighted he was to be there. Dressed in a black embroidered jacket, he told the crowd from the stage: “We are here to support children with Aids, to help the youngest of them affected by HIV. “We will help them build a better future, all of us working together for them, a future without prejudice for these children and their families. “We must learn to live and love each other before it is too late.” Jackson was accompanied by his close friend Uri Geller who had organised the charitable event and also number of children on the stage. After his appeal for world peace, he accepted an Exeter City football shirt and said he had confidence in a win for England against Denmark. Michael then made a farewell tour of the stadium in the classic Bentley after his 10-minute appearance.
