Michael Jackson is celebrated around the world today in what is believed to be an annual event. This year Michael Jackson’s birthday falls on the same day as the Emmy Awards will take place today, August 29.
Michael Jackson rose to fame with the “Jackson Five”, and later went on to create history as a solo artist with best selling albums like Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995). His trademark “Moonwalk”, which he debuted while performing his hit track “Billie Jean” had fans go into frenzy whenever he broke out into it. His music won him hundreds of awards, and his philanthropy and concern for the lives of people, won over the hearts of many. He is known to have supported 39 charities.
The King of Pop died on 25th June, 2009 just a few days short of his final “This is It” tour, and this was a very dark time for Jackson fans across the world. He is survived by his three children – Michael Jr.,Paris, and Prince.
As fans celebrate the life of this great musician, they have one belief in common – Though Micheal Jackson is dead, his music will live on forever.
