Michael Jacksons Glove To Be Auctioned For Charity 2009: Original Sparkling

Michael Jacksons Glove To Be Auctioned For Charity

original sparkling glove will be auctioned off for charity at the annual Music Icons event at the Hard Rock Café in New York’s Times
Square in November. But this isn’t just one of the many gloves the singer wore over his lifetime, which were right hand gloves. This is the one-of-a-kind left hand glove Jackson wore when he unveiled the moonwalk during the “Motown 25” special in 1983. Jackson gifted the glove to Walter Orange, one of the founding members of the Commodores, and it is considered one of the most iconic pieces of Michael Jackson history. “Michael came up behind me and put his hand over my eyes and said, ‘Guess who’“ said Orange. “I knew who it was because I felt the one glove on his left hand and no glove on the other. When I once again asked him for his autograph, Michael gave me the glove he wore that night instead, still refusing to give me his autograph! He was always a real prankster, even as a little boy, so I asked him if he was serious about giving me the glove, and he assured me that he was.” Proceeds from the sale of the glove will go to , which provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. Its services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality. MusiCares also focuses the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues that directly impact the health and welfare of the music community.
