Kenny Ortega, co-direttore del progetto This Is It, sul suo blog in questi giorni teneva in qualche modo aggiornati i fans sugli sviluppi, anche comunicando dei piccolissimi dettagli che parevano quasi insignificanti, ma che riuscivano a trasmettere l’atmosfera che si respirava "dietro le quinte" e contribuiva a dimostrare che i lavori andavano avanti ottimamente.

Verso le 21 di ieri (ora italiana) ha rilasciato un annuncio che dimostra la volontà di coronare in qualche modo il sogno di MJ di veder realizzato questo grande progetto.
Kenny Ortega ha dichiarato che si sta lavorando per realizzare almeno un tributo al suo ultimo progetto, il This Is It.

Sarà anche un modo per onorarne la memoria e omaggiare la sua eccezionale genialità artistica che lo contraddistingueva e che, almeno adesso, sembra gli venga riconosciuta abbastanza unanimemente.

Ecco i comunicati:

«As we close our eyes on this sad day, DREAM, BELIEVE, THIS IS NOT IT. In time, we will celebrate and honor his vision with you all.


You are not alone in the desire to see Michael celebrated with a Tribute that honors his final work TII We are working to make that real

«Chiudendo gli occhi su questo triste giorno, SOGNATE, CREDETE, NON E’ FINITO TUTTO. In tempo, celebreremo ed onoreremo la sua visione con tutti voi.

Non siete i soli a desiderare di vedere Michael celebrato con un tributo che onori il suo lavoro finale This Is It. Stiamo lavorando per renderlo reale»

Attendiamo i prossimi sviluppi, dunque.

Intanto, giusto per ricordare cosa stava accadendo fino ad esattamente due giorni fa, voglio riportare anche i vecchi, brevi aggiornamenti dal blog di Ortega.
