On November 7th, 2001, Michael took part in a signing event to promote his Invincible CD. The show was aired on MTV Live and 2 reporters of the same network were allowed to interview Michael before the event.
Fans could gain the entrance at the store while Michael was there, only buying the Invincible CD the previous day, and only a few hundreds were lucky enough to queue for hours and hours and obtain the Virgn Store lanyard pass that was the only way to access the store, as a security measure.
Michael stayed there for many hours and not only signed his new album but also took pictures with fans and children, eager to hug him and have a chat with him.
It was rumored that Michael wore a bullet proof vest under his blue shirt while he waved to the crowd outside in Times Square. This was due to security concerns as a result of the 9/11 attacks just a few weeks earlier.
It was the first time that Michael took part in a signing promotion as a solo artist and it became one of the most memorable events in history. Times Square was full of thousands and thousands of people and media covering that day, and traffic routinely honked horns and slowed down to wave and get a glimpse of Michael.
