Forever the King of Pop: Michael Jackson, 1958 – 2009

Filed under: Flashback — Felicia @ 11:01 pm

It is ridiculously hard to find the words to express how much of an icon this world has lost. A man who has been such a great contributor of pop music from his childhood; a childhood he didn’t even get a moment to enjoy because he was forced and encouraged to work hard to reach and remain at the top. A man who has given his all to put on a great show; a man who has been such an inspiration to today’s pop idols. Michael Jackson has truly kept us entertained until the very end. At 50 years young, the world has lost the ultimate entertainer, idol, icon, legend. The king of pop title will forever and always belong to Michael.

With a career which spans from his childhood performing with the Jackson 5 which was comprised of his four older brothers, from a very young age he had the world at attention. He didn’t stop there as he was thrust into what would be a continuous and lengthy career as a worldwide pop icon. Michael could not go anywhere and be unrecognizable. He didn’t even have to speak a word; when he stepped on stage and his presence was shown, people would faint at the mere sight of him. Both women and men would lose their minds once they even got a glance of him.

Much is to be said about his legal woes whether we choose to believe them or not. But that does not negate his talent. Its so hard to continue writing at this moment. Although I wasn’t around during his years as a member of the Jackson 5, for as long as I could remember Michael’s music has always been played in our household. When the thought of a legendary pop icon comes to mind, Michael is always rightfully included in that category. 

Its hard to include in this post my favorite Michael Jackson records because there are far too many. I will add one of my favorite up-tempo records, “Wanna Be Starting Something”, and say this: Michael, you will be missed, you will always be loved and you will forever in my eyes be the King of Pop.
