CES 2016 Monster Retailer Awards & Concert Will Feature A Special Musical Tribute To Michael Jackson
On Thursday, January 7th, Monster will present "Heal the World, A Tribute to Michael Jackson," a star-studded gala featuring some of the biggest talents in music today, including several of the Jacksons themselves. The performers, whose names will be announced on January 1st, will be backed by a 30-piece orchestra arranged and conducted by Grammy award-winning producer and engineer Vassal Benford. The concert will include some of MJ's most popular songs, including the night's theme song, "Heal the World," Michael's poignant 1992 anthem, co-produced by Bruce Swedien, who will be among the evening's special guests.
More than 5,000 CE professionals are expected to attend the invitation-only Monster Retailer Awards and Concert at the AXIS Theater Powered by Monster, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino's 7,000-seat state-of-the-art live concert venue. At the event, attendees will also learn who will be honored with the prestigious Monster Retailer Awards. Winners will be chosen in a variety of categories including the top award, the Gold, for "Most Monsterous Retailer of the Year." Attendees will also learn about Monster's bold moves for 2016 and beyond, including expanded relationships with existing partners, as well as new partners and new fitness, lifestyle and gaming headphones, additions to the critically-acclaimed SuperStar line of bluetooth speakers, and a new mobile line to keep music loving road warriors connected and charged.
Head Monster Noel Lee noted: "Our CES concert series has always been about sharing Monster's heart and soul, our love for great music and for an authentic live music experience. Over the years, it's been our great honor and privilege to present so many iconic artists to CES attendees. This year's tribute to Michael Jackson is truly fitting. His song 'Heal the World' truly speaks to the needs of today's times and Monster feels that it's part of our obligation as corporate citizens to bring social consciousness to CES to help fight terror, violence, and to clean up the environment for future generations."
