New Jackson music video unveiled
Michael Jackson appears in a new music video previewing on the internet ahead of the launch of a posthumous Jackson album.
It showcases Jackson's duet with Akon, Hold My Hand, recorded before the superstar death in 2009.
The hyperkinetic, four-and-a-half-minute video shows Jackson in concert, Akon singing and dancing, sentimental scenes of children, families and old people holding hands and a woman weeping.
The song opens with the prescient line, "This life don't last forever... So tell me what we're waiting for... Hold my hand."
The video debuts at midnight Eastern time on Thursday on worldwide websites, including MichaelJackson.com, said Jackson estate co-administrator John Branca.
It is the first single release from the 10-song CD, Michael, which is released on December 14.
