Today is a sad day. Not only did the renowned beauty Farrah Fawcett pass away after suffering for a long time with cancer, but the legendary music icon Michael Jackson suddenly passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest. Although Farrah Fawcet’s death is an unforutnate and sad event, it is a bit more reassuring that her loved ones were able to say their last goodbyes to her in these hard times. It is so heartbreaking that Michael Jackson’s death was unforeseen and unexpected.
I am so sad that Michael Jackson passed away this early on in his life. I have to say, that on the top of my life’s to do list before I die was to see a live Michael Jackson concert. Passing away only at the age of 50, he still had so much more to offer to the world.
In my opinion, he is the most talented musician, performer, dancer, and inspirational artist of the 20th and early 21st century. No one will, nor could, ever take his title of King of Pop. He truly is one of a kind- from his music to his life story, there is and only will be one Michael Jackson. My heart goes out to his children, his family, and his fans. RIP the King of Pop, Sir Michael Jackson.
Here’s a tribute to some of my favorite songs by him. LONG LIVE THE MOONWALK!
“Thriller”- Full Version
“Remember the Time”
“Earth Song”- my all time favorite. The message behind it is so empowering.
“Scream”- with sister Janet Jackson
“Who’s Loving You”- Jackson 5
“Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”
“They Don’t Care About Us”- another one of my all time favorites. Listen to the powerful words and the message behind it.
“Will You Be There”- featured in the movie Free Willy. I always get goosebumps from this one.
