Jackson expresses desire for a national children’s holiday in audio recording

When Michael Jackson died, he left behind an unparalleled musical legacy. But the pop icon, who died three years ago, was also known—for better or for worse—for his dedication to children’s causes. And it turns out he envisioned the whole country setting aside a day to honor young people, just as they do mothers, fathers, veterans, momentous dates in history, etc. In a recording obtained by E! News, Jackson can be heard discussing his wish for a national children’s day with confidante Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who is now running for congress in New Jersey on a platform that includes a proposal that, in his view, could help keep his late friend’s dream alive. “If there was a children’s day when I was little…do you know what that would have meant for me?” Jackson told Boteach. “That would have meant so much to me, Shmuley.”
