Michael Jackson Has Died!!

michael-jackson Wow!! Are you serious?? I still can’t believe it.  I am driving home and I hear that Michael Jackson was admitted to the hospital with cardiac arrest.  Next thing I know I am getting text messages from my buddy “Lefty” saying that Michael Jackson was dead.  I was still driving and checking my phone to verify if this was the least bit true.  I checked Yahoo! and they said that he was in a coma.  I keep driving down the road and finally make it home.  Only to discover that Michael Jackson has died at the age of 50!

Now lets put aside the “alleged scandals” against Jackson and lets remember him for being one of the greatest musicians ever!  I know that growing up as a kid that I use to hear a Michael Jackson song.  Soon as you hear his music, it just makes you want to dance like Michael.  Who am I kidding, I find myself doing that today.  Michael Jackson has influenced many musicians today!  His music was loved by all people.  You could be in East Bum and still know who Michael Jackson is.  I remember growing up and listening to great songs like Billie Jean, Thriller, Wanna Be Startin Something, Bad, and I could go on and on.  Even before my time people were adoring Michael when he was with the Jackson 5.  I just can’t believe that he has died!  I have so many things racing in my mind that I would like to say.  But I can’t because I just am shocked and speechless.

I wanted to share some of his accolades as a musician.

So I ask my fellow readers to find a Michael Jackson song and put it on and remember his legacy.  I still can’t believe this.  This day will certainly go down in history!

R.I.P Michael “King of Pop” Jackson!

p.s. I would love to hear your favorite Michael Jackson moment and or song!

  1. Oh Michael I am so with you. I actually flew to Philadelphia just to go to his Victory Tour and then saw him again in Miami many, many years ago. My all time favorite is “Ben”. And I actually have an “album” (yes, an album) of the Jackson Five’s Christmas Album.. He was just a little boy.

    • hell yeah. i loved that ride. i watched michael jackson moonwalker last night. just ask my cousins and they will tell you how many hours we spent in los angeles watching that movie.

  2. Always loved Michael Jackson and was never afraid to admit it. I remember staying up late one night to watch the world premiere of the video for “Remember the Time.” It was an epic moment on television. To this day though, my favorite Jackson song and video is “Jam.”
