There are some songs that occupy a permanent space in your brain and Michael Jackson's Black or White is one of them.

The track debuted at no. 35 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1991 and shot to the no. 1 position after three weeks. It stayed there comfortably for seven weeks.

Fast forward to 2016 and the song is back...

In a video conceptualised by Tobias Ellehammer of London-based AMCK Dance, dancers are seen shaking a leg to the track in front of global landmarks, including Dubai's Burj Khalifa. 

The video was first uploaded on 29 August with the following message...

Happy Birthday Michael Jackson.

Today we celebrate the king of pop and everything he did for us. Michael wanted to spread good in our world trying to change the bad and heal the world for some of its problems. Unfortunately the world is still in a troubling state. In these times many people look at various links on social media and unfortunately react with fear, hatred and immediately close their arms. Instead we should open up our arms and look to solve the problems together. There should be room for everyone in this world. No matter what you look like, what religion you have or where you come from. We are all one. That's the purpose of this video. To remind all of us how incredibly important love and freedom is and to put something good out into this world. Something that will unite people from all around the globe. The world is beautiful. We should all enjoy it together. 

Humanity should be our race. Love should be our religion.
