    Michael Jackson Flash Mob Hollywood

    The air was thick and overflowing with an unknown energy, yet no one knew what was about to hit them...
    At 2pm Pacific Time on Saturday, July 25th, the spirit of Michael Jackson took Hollywood by surprise. Over 200 dancers emerged from all over LA, as well as the world, to pay homage to MJ with an impromptu 'Beat It' tribute dance. Many tourists and spectators were caught off guard and pleasantly surprised.
    Although he has passed, MJ lives on, thriving in both spirit and in his memories. His fans fight to secure his place in pop culture history, by expressing their gratitude in many creative ways. Conroe Brooks decided to team up with Jennie Widegren, flash mob creator, to develop a truly memorable Hollywood experience.
    The crowd immediately gravitated towards both MJ's music and the dancers' rhythm, like a young child does with a death defying roller-coaster. They held on tight, screamed at the top of their lungs, and enjoyed the ride of a lifetime. Albeit short, the adrenaline rush as packed full of highs, lows, and plenty of cheers. Shortly thereafter, dancers' duties were done, as they walked back to their daily lives and decided to 'Beat It'.
