A Tribute to The King of Pop: MJ

After reading about 20 facebook status updates on my phone about Micheal Jackson passing and walking in the door to my Dad saying "Did you hear the news?" I jumped to the nearest flat screen and tuned into CNN. Although, I was in disbelief, while hearing the news from facebook, the radio and family, CNN was my only trusted source. It was true, the King of Pop had taken his last breath of his life.

Growing up in the late 80's and early 90's, Micheal Jackson was the jig in my high-watered pants , the twitching of my hands, the bruises on my tip-toes, and the squeaking of my gym shoes, while attempting to do the moon-walk. From the hit jams Billie Jean, Thriller, Pretty Young Thang, Bad, Beat it, The Way You Make Me Feel, Scream, Rock With You & Butterflies, MJ has inspired so many music artists and touched millions for people across the world with his passion for music.

My deepest condolences goes out to his friends and family,MJ will be greatly missed.

As I reflect on the life of The King of POP,MJ, all the songs I adored began to play in my mind. Especially two of my most favorite songs and I wanted to share them with you. Not only are they songs, but songs with a powerful meaning...One, celebrating the diversity of culture around the world, without discriminating and two, the ability to make a difference in the world, starting with the person stirring at you in the mirror, YOURSELF!

Enjoy, the brilliance and legacy of the King of Pop, Micheal JACKSON (1958-2009)

That was such a good post. U r right. It is like an emptiness felt for art and culture. I never paid attention to how much MJ influenced the culture around me until he passed.
