Michael posted on Facebook that it was one of the best week’s of his life.
He is just back from being a guest and performing at the very inspiring “Surviving and Thriving” leadership gathering on Richard Branson’s beautiful Necker Island, in the blue waters of the Caribbean.
Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away”, The Lumineer’s “Hey Ho”, Pearl Jam’s “Black, BeeGees “To Love Somebody” and Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” were just part of the fabulous array of tunes Michael treated the guests to. This must have been nothing short of spectacular!
Looks like Michael and fellow musician, Keith Harkin are playing the guitar together and having a blast!
Some thoughts from Richard Branson’s blog on the event and many thanks to him for the MJ photos.
I am always amazed by the incredible capacity of the human spirit in the face of adversity – physical, mental, emotional. For the last few days, my friends Glenn and Mindy Stearns have been on Necker Island working with Virgin Unite for a truly captivating Leadership Gathering themed “Surviving and Thriving”. We spoke about personal and professional struggles, but even more about what it takes to emerge from the darkness to continue fighting. Two amazing musicians, Keith Harkin and Michael Johns, joined the group to remind us that although these gatherings have been established to listen and learn, sometimes we just need to enjoy the company of others and dance.
The article is in itself inspiring and a must-read…also some fabulous photos. Please check out http://www.virgin.com/richard-branson/surviving-and-thriving
