LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2009 – Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) has postponed its panel and showcase, “The Process,” in Los Angeles out of respect for the family, friends and colleagues of BMI Icon Michael Jackson. The event will be rescheduled at a later date. BMI mourns the loss of Michael Jackson.
BMI Statement on Michael Jackson:
“BMI mourns the passing of Michael Jackson. A BMI Icon, he was one of the greatest entertainers of our era. His songwriting skills, composing both music and lyrics, were as influential as his singing, dancing, personal style and humanitarianism. In an era in which most songs are composed by teams, Michael was the sole composer of dozens of songs that endeared him to audiences around the world. A BMI songwriter since 1976, his catalog contains more than 150 songs, more than 20 reaching multi-million performance status on American radio and television. Our hearts are with his family, especially his children, at this sad time. He will be missed by millions, but we can be comforted that he will live on, young and vibrant, in his music and videos.”-Del Bryant, President & CEO, Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI).
