During her speech at Michael Jackson’s Memorial today in Los Angeles, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) showed off a resolution honoring the life and work of Michael Jackson. According to OpenCongress, “It’s extremely long; about three or four times the length of a “typical” resolution, and focuses heavily on his role as a humanitarian.”

Such a resolution is not a surprise given the love of Jackson by people all over the world. In terms of giving, it’s also quite deserving. For their “Millenium” issue, the Guiness World Record book listed the music legend under Most Charities Supported By A Pop Star, with an incredible 39 international organizations. Since his giving was also sporadic and spontaneous, the true number of other organizations benefiting from Jackson’s generosity may never be known.

After a lengthy opening detailing some of Jackson’s charitable works, the resolution concludes:

Resolved, That the House of Representatives

(1) recognizes Michael Jackson as a global humanitarian and a noted leader in the fight against worldwide hunger and medical crises; and

(2) celebrates Michael Jackson as an accomplished contributor to the worlds of arts and entertainment, scientific advances in the treatment of HIV/AIDS, and global food security.
