Michael Jackson and Akon’s ‘Hold My Hands’ Video Unleashed

The music video for Michael Jackson’s first official posthumous single “Hold My Hand” has premiered in its entirety. The clip, which features Akon, paints a collage with imagery of people celebrating the legacy of the late King of Pop, including dancing youngsters to the sick and elderly. The uplifting video for “Hold My Hand” celebrates Jackson at his very best — dancing and performing at the height of his career. “He wanted to put out music that was positive enough to bring the world together,” Akon recently told Billboard.com. “Hold My Hand” is lifted off Jackson’s upcoming album titled “Michael,” which also features Lenny Kravitz and 50 Cent. The video is directed by Mark Pellington and was filmed in California. “The video is a tribute to all that Michael stands for — life, in all its permutations…love, and its power…. A video of memory, healing and joy,” the director said in a statement. Michael Jackson’s ‘Michael’ will hit stores December 14 but fans can stream the album in full for free on MJ’s official site.
