Over the past six years since, he has worked to continue MJJ’s mission of love and healing the world by devoting his time and energy to producing the most accurate and true-to-life tribute to the King of Pop in SL.

In addition to his work for the fans, he has supported several charities, with his main focus being raising funds for the Francesca Rava Foundation N.P.H. ONLUS in Haiti.

Working together with Viviana Houston and CLE Productions he has produced virtual versions of many of MJJ’s music videos and concerts, as well as created new and innovative tribute shows to keep Michael’s spirit alive here in Second Life.  His crowning achievement however, is the beautiful and detailed recreation of Michael Jackson’s own NeverLand Ranch, which is open to the public year round. His work has ensured that this historical place will live on in this virtual environment.

MJF’s latest production is called MoonwalKING. It is an exciting and innovative tribute where the greatest hits of Michael Jackson’s career, take flight into outer space. Join us for a unique MJ experience that should not be missed!
