- Michael Joseph Jackson (born August 29, 195 , commonly known as MJ as well as the "King of Pop," is an American musician, entertainer and pop icon, whose successful music career and controversial personal life have been a part of pop culture for the last quarter-century. He has three children: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. (known as 'Prince'), Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince Michael Joseph Jackson II (known as 'Blanket').
Michael Jackson is widely regarded as one of the greatest entertainers and most popular recording artists in human history, heralding and displaying complicated physical techniques, like the robot and the moonwalk, that have redefined mainstream entertainment. At his height, he was characterized as "an unstoppable juggernaut, possessed of all the tools to dominate the charts seemingly at will: an instantly identifiable voice, eye-popping dance moves, stunning musical versatility, and loads of sheer star power." His achievements in the music industry have included, among other things, a revolutionary transformation of music videos, epitomized by 1983's Thriller, often cited as the greatest music video of all time, establishing high-profile album releases and sales as a new trend for record companies to generate profits, dominating pop music during the 1980s, and becoming the first black entertainer to amass a strong following on MTV. Additionally, Michael Jackson has dabbled in various musical genres and collaborated with several other superstars in the music industry, occasionally also lending his talents to the work of other artists. His distinctive style, moves, and vocals have inspired, influenced, and spawned a whole generation of hip hop, pop, and R&B artists, including Mariah Carey, Usher, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Omarion, and Chris Brown, among others. In 1990, Vanity Fair magazine named him the "Most Popular Artist in the History of Show Business."
Jackson began his musical career at the age of seven as the lead singer of The Jackson 5 and released his first solo recording, Got to Be There, in 1971 while remaining a member of the group. He began a full-fledged solo career in 1979 and formally parted with his siblings in 1984. In his solo career, Jackson recorded and co-produced the best-selling album of all time, Thriller, which has worldwide sales exceeding 104 million. Michael Jackson has received thirteen Grammy awards and charted thirteen number-one singles in the United States, more than any other solo male artist in the Hot 100 era. In November 2006, Raymone Bain, Jackson's PR, announced that Michael Jackson has sold over 750 million units worldwide, making Jackson one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Throughout his four-decade career, Michael Jackson has been awarded numerous honors, including the World Music Award's Best-Selling Pop Male Artist of the Millennium, the American Music A

Michael Jackson was an icon to anyone who was lucky enough to see past his kooky exterior, and see the kind hearted, talented gentleman INSIDE. His body may no longer be here to wow us with the amazing dancing, singing and other things he could do, but his spirit will live on forever in his fans, friends and family. As for his music, that goes without saying that many people will be dancing to it for years to come.
He had a tough childhood, and this probably influenced the way he behaved in his later years. Michael's dream was to change the world we live in, and bring about equality between all races, ages, sexualities, genders and abilities. He wanted man to love man, and share the wonderful things we have to offer other people, stop war and take care of our environment. To a certain extent, he did this, but the thing that has had the strongest effect on people is his music.
His lyrics spoke the truth, and often set to a funky beat, had people singing along almost instantly. Michael, you were a musical legend to be remembered, and you will be for eternity.
Currently, we all just need to embrace one of Michael's most famous lines ever written: "You are not alone" We are not alone, Michael's music and soul with live on with us in our hearts forever. My deepest sympathy goes to him family right now.
I Love You Michael Jackson.
