From the Frank DiLeo Michael Jackson Collection, this is Michael Jackson manager and famed record executive Frank DiLeo's personal Michael Jackson "Off The Wall" original Epic Records U.K. in-house multi-platinum record album award display that was presented to him. DiLeo, whose prolific career in the record business touched numerous artists, was best known for his work with Michael Jackson. After DiLeo had already taken the position of Vice President of National Promotion at Epic Records, Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was released by the company in 1982. Michael was so happy with Frank's innovative work in promoting the hugely successful album, he asked DiLeo to become his manager and he managed Michael 1984 to 1989, and partnered with Jackson again in 2009 for the “This Is It” concert series. DiLeo was the co-executive producer, along with Michael, for Michael's full-length movie “Moonwalker,” executive produced three of Michael's Pepsi-Cola commercials (including negotiating a landmark endorsement deal with Pepsi), and eight Michael Jackson music videos including the Michael’s Grammy winning video "Leave Me Alone". DiLeo oversaw Jackson's “Bad World Tour,” and the Jackson family's “Victory Tour.” DiLeo later partnered up with Jackson again in 2009 in preparation for Michael's sold-out "This Is It" concert tour that sadly never took place due to the singer's tragic death eighteen days prior to the start. This award measures 24.5 x 45. Very good condition with some wear. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity and a letter of provenance from the DiLeo family.
