Twenty years after Michael Jackson recorded his iconic "They Don't Care About Us" in a favela in Rio de Janeiro, Tito Jackson, returns to the marvelous city to film an appearance in the music video of the charity song "Winning by Giving" (with Mart'nália and kids) which will be released as the anthem of the international news and charity network entitled "My Good Planet", to be launched in Rio de Janeiro in the summer. A statue of Michael Jackson has long stood as a prime tourist attraction atop the Santa Marta favela in Rio's South Zone, and now Tito Jackson makes a mark with his message. The project "Winniny By Giving" that is already established in Los Angeles, Ireland, and Germany, aims to bring sustainable gardens, clean water and communal safe places to disadvantaged, urban areas of Brazil. According Tito, the children of Santa Marta have long identified with the sentiment of Michael's anthem, so now it is time for a practical response showing that people do care.
"It is a great feeling to know that my brother was here 20 years ago and shared so much love and support for the people here and to know that Good Planet is continuing to carry on that spirit and that love in the ways they have done today. And I am so happy to be a part of it because it means so much to me to be among such beautiful people and it's very important. The Good Planet people say to teach young people how to grow fruit and vegetable, organic stuff, and how to have clean water, drinking water, clean up with water and things for the future of the children of Brazil," said Tito Jackson.
Tito Jackson is in Brazil to film a cameo appearance in the favela of Rio de Janeiro with locals kids and drummers for the music video "WINNING BY GIVING" by Brazilian artist Mart'nália. Tito was asked to be part of this charity song and video and he is excited to contribute and shoot his cameo appearance for the music video in the same favela where his brother Michael Jackson filmed his music video for "They Don't Care About Us" (1996) twenty years ago. It means a lot for Tito to visit that same Favela because his brother embraced Brazil and the people as well.
Mart'nália Mendonça Ferreira, known as Mart'nália (1965) is a Brazilian singer, songwriter and percussionist. She is the daughter of sambista Martinho da Vila and singer Analia Mendoncabegan and Mart'nália began her professional career at age 16. In 2015, her album Em Samba! Ao vivo was nominated for the 16th Latin Grammy Awards in the Best Samba/Pagode Album category.
In the spirit of bringing unity and peace all over the world, Tito is looking forward to receive The Olympic Torch along with the children of Bahia on May 19th during a meeting for and with the Pataxo Indian tribe and torch ritual.
