THE CULT OF MICHAEL JACKSON announces plans to open its first chapel praising the life and teachings of Michael Jackson in Williamsburg Brooklyn, New York. Although originally planned around Jackson’s concerts, the group has decided that it will move forward with plans that have been in the works since early 2008. In light of recent tragic events, the chapel will be a place for fans to gather, pay their respects, and worship the artistry of Michael Jackson.

THE CULT was formed to translate Michael Jackson’s words and teachings into scripture and spread what they call “The Gospel” to bring the world together. Leaders of THE CULT state that they fully believe that the world would be a better place if everyone took Michael Jackson’s words to heart.

“Imagine the strife and wars we could solve if we just straightened up and boogied down,” said Rusel Parish, the artist who is now busily designing the chapel. “The Cult of Michael Jackson transcends thousands of years of hate, war, and spiritual prisons of other religions; and instead brings the world into a new order: one of love, soul, funk and pop. We could end the entire world’s suffering and we could literally blame it on the boogie.”

The chapel will open for during September and October as a place for believers to come, meditate and pay homage to the King of Pop. The opening will be at 6 p.m. on 9.11.09.

THE CULT recently anointed leader Rusel Parish as its leader and official spokesperson. Parish is the world’s preeminent Michael Jackson artist (www.iheartmj.com) and is creating the spiritual haven. He brings his years of experience and study of working in the image of Michael Jackson through paintings, drawings, and sculpture in building this ultimate shrine.
