ForeverMissed
This week the entertainment world lost one of its most talented, beloved, and innovate artists. Michael Jackson, whose singing and dancing helped define a new art form – the music video – passed away at the age of 50 at his home in Los Angeles. During his 45-year career in music, his magic and charisma made him the most recognized performer in the world, and one of the most beloved. Today, one day after his death, devoted fans are gathering around the world to pay tribute to 'The King of Pop', bringing flowers, wearing the kinds of items that were his trademark, and sharing their sadness. In Gary, Indiana, his childhood home, residents of this city were conducting a vigil at the house where he and his brothers and sisters learned to sing, dance, play instruments, and become the most famous family act in American musical history. In New York, outside Harlem's Apollo Theater, devoted fans were remembering his first performance there, with The Jackson Five, in 1969. In Los Angeles, his fans and admirers were gathered at his home, and at his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Not since the passing of Elvis Presley and John Lennon has a death in our generation's musical family seen such an outpouring of emotion. Michael Jackson's unique contributions to the world of popular music will be studied, and imitated, but never reproduced – for he was truly one of a kind.

Michael, growing up I didn’t listen to your music much, and unfortunately the day you passed away is when I really became a fan of your music. It’s been years and I still to this day listen to your music and wish I could meet you. Rest easy. We all miss you so much.

You were a shining light in the world, put out too soon, but you left an indelible mark that can never be erased. For this, I and many more are forever grateful. From childhood memories of singing and dancing to "ABC," to college years of singing and dancing to every single track on your "Off the wall" album, feeling love when "We are the World" was a unifying song and the many great songs that followed, your songs, the lyrics and your voice never failed to bring love an joy. May you forever find rest in God's bosom.

Michael Joseph Jackson,

micheal you were a great singer and a great person, r.i.p.
Posted by Rosa Merritt/Bravo on January 6, 2012
Dearest Michael, you passed away just 23 days after my one and only dear mother Victoria I. Bravo had passed away, I hope that you two meet in heaven. I work nearby and pass the coroner's office that your body lied to rest and be studied after your passing. Your oldest sister Latoya was right from the moment she oppened her mouth about your death. May your children grow happy like you.

Bad: The Harsh Realities of Superstardom

Shared by Damon Gitelman on June 29, 2009
The excitement that Michael Jackson generated on stage and in his videos continued to push him into a dimension of celebrity status few others had known. And with this new status came many difficulties. Among them were physical injuries that affected his health and challenged his abilities. A fall from a stage during a performance was one injury that befell Michael Jackson. Then, he suffered serious burns in an accident while filming a television commercial in the early 1980s. One result of these and other injuries and physical problems was his admitted dependence on medication for pain control. And, as the circumstances surrounding his death are being investigated, and details are slowly beginning to emerge, evidence suggests that the heart failure that ended his life on June 26 were in some way related to his reliance upon prescription medications.

Thrills and Chills: Thriller

Shared by Damon Gitelman on June 29, 2009
When "Thriller" was released in 1982, the album – also produced by master composer and arranger Quincy Jones – a new media genre took shape: the music video. MTV and other music video channels were already showing performances by artists, but the creativity, intense attention to fine details, and overall look and feel ("production values", as they are called in Hollywood) of the "Thriller" videos set new standards. No longer would entertainers be content to stand in front of a camera, and simply sing and play. Michael Jackson's new way of demonstrating his art would revolutionize the way music and video worked together. "Thriller" went on to become be biggest-selling album in music history, and some argument persists regarding just how many million copies were sold. And of course: it is still selling today.

A Solo Career Breaks Through: Off the Wall

Shared by Damon Gitelman on June 29, 2009
Many of the greatest jazz, R&B, and other pop music producers welcomed the chance to work with Michael Jackson – so admired and respected was this singer and stage performer. Quincy Jones, one of the greatest names in American music, produced Michael's first solo album, "Off the Wall", and the news was out: a new talent had established himself and a permanent presence on the American popular music landscape. Around the world, this album would be a dance-floor favorite, and a fixture of the international discotheque sound-track.
