"Michael Jackson made culture accept a person of color. To say an 'icon' would only give these young people in Harlem a fraction of what he was. He was a historic figure that people will measure music and the industry by." said Rev. Al Shaprton in a statement.
I can not believe that the King of Pop would die this way. There have been so many false reports about his death in the past. I used to be a fan of Michael Jackson until I discovered those plastic surgery nose failures & child molestation. However, nobody can deny that he is an icon in the music industry, and I think always will be. This sudden tragic death shocks all music fans and there is outpouring of sympathy for the loss of Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson first rose to fame in the late 1960s as the lead singer of the Jackson 5. He was that boy who was with a lot of energy performing with his four older brothers. Their famous hits include “Ben” and “I’ll Be There” that has so many renditions from other artists.
The 1982 album “Thriller” is the best selling album of all time with more than 50 million copies sold worldwide. The much famed album includes top charters “Billie Jean,” “Beat It,” and the most recognizable song to the world, “Thriller.”
Michael Jackson was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1984, having a notable impact on music and culture throughout the world. However, his popularity started to decline in the 1990s, after a series of scandals and a disturbing family history.
Prior to his death, Jackson had been scheduled to perform sold-out concerts at London's O2 arena, July this year to March 2010.
I wonder why music icons die in such a young age. The King of Rock and Roll Elvis Prestley died at the age of 44. How old was Elvis when he died?
