( BLACK PR WIRE)CHICAGO, IL (August 27th, 2009)----The untimely death of legendary artist Michael Jackson was a shocking blow to the music and fashion industry. Monique Spence, Founder and Creative Fashion Director of Redefine The Tee (www.mjtributetee.com), was saddened by the events, but knew that there had to be a way to develop a fitting tribute for the King of Pop without sacrificing style or substance. That led to the creation of the exclusive “MJ” Tribute Tee from Redefine The Tee, a fashionable t-shirt highlighting the Gloved One’s number one music hits throughout the years while keeping his unique sense of fashion and style on the forefront.
The “MJ” Tribute Tee from Redefine The Tee is gaining national and international buzz among the music and entertainment community and has been seen on various high-profile celebrities including radio personality Doug Banks, singer Vivian Green, rapper Too Short and actress Drew Sidora. Spence also determined that the “MJ” Tribute Tee from Redefine The Tee should honor the musical background of Jackson by supporting school music programs in Gary, IN. Portions of the proceeds from all sales will be donated to the music program at Theodore Roosevelt High School, where the Jackson Brothers attended.
“As a business owner, it’s my responsibility to create jobs and opportunities for others,” said Spence. “Although this is a sad event for all of us, I wanted to create a way to memorialize one of our greatest artists while giving back to the community. At Redefine The Tee, we believe you can support your fellow man and look good at the same time. Help us give back through fashion!”
Just in time for the King Of Pop’s birthday on August 29th, the “MJ” Tribute Tee from Redefine The Tee is currently on sale at www.mjtributetee.com, Macy’s on State Street (Downtown Chicago), Macy's River Oaks (South Suburbs), and Macy's in Merriville, IN
