Michael Jackson fans were never truly shocked to hear the King of Pop had written and released a brand new hit overnight. The star was forever releasing unbelievable music which has since gone down in history. However, he also did a lot of humanitarian work over the years, especially working to improve the lives of impoverished or sick children.
Throughout his long career Jackson spent a lot of time working on making the lives of children better using his incredible power and wealth.
This included welcoming them to his Neverland ranch, donating money, and doing publicity visits to raise awareness for various causes.
Eventually, in 1990 Jackson was praised by the Boy Scouts of America for his work.
And because of this, he was awarded the first award with a brand new name, titled in honour of the star himself.

September 14, 1990, saw Jackson being given the first ever "Michael Jackson Good Scout Humanitarian Award".
This award, given to him by the Boy Scouts, was created, named, and awarded for Jackson in recognition of his numerous humanitarian efforts over the years prior.
At the ceremony Jackson was given the award by Disney CEO Michael Eisner, an associate of Jackson at the time.
Chairman of the board of Los Angeles Area Council Boy Scouts of America Ray Martin also commented on the help the star had provided.
