8 November: Annual Conference on Cultural Diplomacy 2014
where Jermaine is among the speakers of The Annual Conference on Cultural Diplomacy 2014 A World without Walls; Opportunities for Peace Building in a Time of Global Insecurity. The conference is hosted at a number of important political, historic, and cultural locations across the city of Berlin, November 7th - 10th, 2014. The Annual Conference on Cultural Diplomacy is the world’s leading event within its field and traditionally hosted and organized by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy and other leading organizations at the end of the calendar year. The 2014 conference brings together over 300 world leaders coming from the fields of politics and religious together with senior academics and celebrated artists traveling to Berlin from all corners of the world to promote global peace in our interdependent world. The 2014 Annual Conference on Cultural Diplomacy is held in the framework of the Berlin celebrations of the 25th Anniversary for the fall of the Berlin Wall. This year’s conference is titled “World Without Walls” to emphasize the great changes that took place in the wake of the fall of the Berlin Wall and to symbolize the many political, economic and cultural walls that still exist in today’s society. This year’s conference will focus on these boundaries and issues. The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was a historic catalyst that led to a change in the world’s political, economic and cultural landscape. In the tumultuous aftermath, Eastern Europe witnessed the emergence of dozens of states which led to today’s European Union. The events in Berlin also brought transformation to other parts of the world very far from the Berlin Wall, including regions as far afield as Africa and Asia, and also laid the groundwork for the world we experience today.

Joseph Jackson is turning 86 years old on 26th of July and in the ten days leading up to his birthday, the patriarch reflects on each member of his immediate family, sharing private memories and fun moments that stand out the most in my mind. On Day 5, Joseph reflects on Jermaine with beautiful and very true words:
"Jermaine is the type of Kid who is very sensitive and extremely good at playing the base guitar. I have not met anyone who can play the base better than him. He loved to play the base. He taught some of his kids to play the guitar too! Actually one of his kids a few years ago was playing the lead guitar with him on stage. I have always felt that no one can sing a ballad song better than Jermaine. He has a God given talent to sing ballads better than anyone in this world. I am not saying this simply because he is my son. I have been around the block and know quality when I hear it. I only wish he sang them more often than he does. "
After entering the hospitality business, Jermaine also entered the bottled water business. On May 16th 2014, Jermaine sat down with Kevin Frazier of The Insider to talk about giving back with his charity VITÁ water. On May 17, Jermaine and his mother Katherine were on hand at Whole Foods Tarzana to sign purchased bottles of VITÁ water. Jermaine explained to KCAL9′s Adrianna Weingold why he’s decided to venture into uncharted waters. He said his new product is all about giving back and philanthropy.
VITÁ water (pronounced Vee-ta) is helping bring clean water to countries in need. “We’re the only ones that’s building wells and really caring about providing water, clean water for people who don’t have it,” said Jermaine. Vita uses a percentage of profits to build wells in places around the world where there isn’t enough clean water. For every 31 bottles of spring water sold, Vita has pledged to provide clean drinking water to one person for 20 years. For Jermaine and his family, it’s a cause they say is close to their hearts “Water is life and so this is just a continuation of what we’ve been about all of our lives, the Jackson family,” he said. Shakira Niazi, the company’s founder and CEO, is a refugee from Afghanistan. She escaped the war-torn country at just 8 years old, and says she’s made it her mission to help others. “Their smiles, their simple joy of celebrating life through just access to water,” says Niazi, explaining what led her to water. After each well is built, Niazi says, it’s turned over to a women in the village to manage, empowering her, while giving thousands of people clean water for years to come. That is a cause Jermaine says he’s proud to be a part of. “The songs, the videos and everything that’s where it comes from, this is all representative of heal the world, we are the world, man in the mirror, this is all part of it and that’s why I’m here.” VITÁ water has 18 finished wells — 2 in Ethiopia and 16 in Afghanistan. They say they hope to have thousands more in the years to come.
