Over $20,000 at Auction

A black surgical mask that Michael Jackson allegedly wore the night before he died in 2009 has hit the auction block -- and the bids have already surpassed $20,000.

According to the auction house -- Nate D. Sanders Auctions -- MJ wore the mask (above) while rehearsing for his "This Is It" concert tour on June 24th, 2009 ... the singer's last ever rehearsal.

The auction house claims the mask  -- made of silk fabric, personally designed by the King of Pop -- contains visible traces of MJ's stage make-up along with a strand of his black hair.

One of MJ's former bodyguards was in possession of the mask, and swears by its authenticity. MJ famously wore surgical masks outdoors as a form of disguise.

"HIStory"


He got kicked in the back
He say that he needed that
He hot willed in the face
Keep daring to motivate
He say one day you will see
His place in world history
He dares to be recognized
The fires deep in his eyes

How many victims must there be
Slaughtered in vain across the land
And how many struggles must there be
Before we choose to live the prophet's plan
Everybody sing...

Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty

Don't let no one get you down
Keep movin' on higher ground
Keep flying until
You are the king of the hill
No force of nature can break
Your will to self motivate
She say this face that you see
Is destined for history

How many people have to cry
The song of pain and grief across the land
And how many children have to die
Before we stand to lend a healing hand
Everybody sing...

Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
Every day create your history
Every page you turn you're writing your legacy
Every hero dreams of chivalry
Every child should sing together in harmony

All nations sing
Let's harmonize all around the world

How many victims must there be
Slaughtered in vain across the land
And how many children must we see
Before we learn to live as brothers
And leave one family oh...

Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
Every day create your history
Every page you turn you're writing your legacy
Every hero dreams of chivalry
Every child should sing together in harmony

A soldier dies
A mother cries
The promised child shines in a baby's eyes
All nations sing
Let's harmonize all around the world

Michael Jackson will forever be the King of Pop...he gave to music his talent. He is, was and is one of the greatest musical artist of his time. That will never change. His talent is etched in the universe forever. It is unmatched. Thank you, Michael for the legacy you left for the world.

Beautiful Michael Jackson! What a horrendous shame what this world tried to do to this man...they tried to tear him down, he stood strong..

What he did; he gave more to charities then any other entertainer..EVER! Fed the hungry, gave money for education, help heal the sick, saved lives...all races. Saved the lives of so many children and yet...what this world and those horrible people tried to do to him; lying Sneddon who should have been thrown in prison for what he did (and we all know his lies, false evidence, it's in the court do***ents!). That lying GAVIN CLAN, all liars, every single one of them, they know it...may they rot in h@ll for what they tried to do to this man..it's all in the court do***ents, we who know the truth understand, Michael understood too. But, at some point, a person can only take so much. So, he broke...we took his heart and soul and just ripped it right out of him...broke him down for NO REASON. People saying he wanted to be white, it's now do***ented he had a horrible skin disease, it's in the autopsy. People saying all kinds of lies when the court case and legal do***ents revealed all the fales allegations were just that..LIES, LIES..LIES!

What...what did Michael try to do; well, he spent his entire life, since the tender age of 5 years old, singing and dancing..we loved him, the entire world could not get enough of him, this beautiful genius! He worked and crafted his art like no other..the best, the greatest. But he continued to do more...gave more money, tried to mend the racial gaps, spoke softly, unassuming...quietly giving money, more money, helping, healing.

What this world did to him..well, we should all be ashamed.

RIP, sweet sould Michael Jackson!

"We've Had Enough"


Love was taken from a young life
And no one told her why
Her direction has a dimelight
From one more violent crime

She innocently questioned why
Why her father had to die
She asked the men in blue
How is it that you get to choose
Who will live and who will die
Did God say that you could decide?
You saw he didn't run
And that my daddy had no gun

In the middle of a village
Way in a distant land
Lies a poor boy with his broken toy
Too young to understand

He's awaken, ground is shakin
His father grabs his hand
Screaming, crying, his wife's dying
Now he's left to explain

He innocently questioned why
Why his mother had to die
What did these soldiers come here for?
If they're for peace, why is there war?

Did God say that they could decide
Who will live and who will die?
All my mama ever did
Was try to take care of her kids

We're innocently standing by
Watching people lose their lives
It seems as if we have no voice
It's time for us to make a choice

Only God could decide
Who will live and who will die
There's nothing that can't be done
If we raise our voice as one

They've gotta hear it from me
They've gotta hear it from you
They've gotta hear it from us
We can't take it
We've already had enough

They've gotta hear it from me
They've gotta hear it from you
They've gotta hear it from us

We can't take it
We've already had enough

They've gotta hear it from me
They've gotta hear it from you
They've gotta hear it from you baby

We can't take it
We've already had enough

Deep in my soul baby

Deep in your soul and let God decide

Deep in my soul

It's up to me and I'm still alive

They've gotta hear it from us

We can't take it
We've already had enough

It's going down baby
Just let God decide,

It's going on baby
Just let God decide

Deep in my soul baby

We've already had enough

They've gotta hear it from me
They've gotta hear it from you
They've gotta hear it from us

We can't, we can't
We've already had enough.....
