MICHAEL JACKSON, "KING OF POP" PASSES AT AGE 50!

On the date of June 25, 2009, with the passing of Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson on the same day, this is a day in which the world of Pop Culture will forever live in infamy!

Listening to the radio about an hour ago, I received word that Michael Jackson, 50, died in a hospital in Los Angeles. A little after noon today, Jackson was at home when he stopped breathing and a staff member made the 911 call to come get him and bring him to the hospital. From what I've heard, he was dead on arrival. Michael Jackson was the biggest celebrity in the world, really needing no introduction, as everyone recognized him as the King of Pop. Michael Jackson was the black Elvis Presley!

On this evening, I am deeply saddened by this man's passing. He was a legend and his songs were inspirational. His sing voice, lyrics, and overall presence will always be remembered. There so many classic songs that he came out with: Billy Jean, Thriller, Beat it, You Are Not Alone, Man in the Mirror, Smooth Criminal, Wanna Be Starting Something, etc. So many songs to remember and so many hits. Michael Jackson's album Thriller clearly remains the best selling album of all times. It was indeed a legendary album of epic proportions. Jackson will always remain an icon who set the standard for pop culture.

Jackson is the man whom current stars such as R.Kelly, Usher, Justin Timberlake, and many others among them, have idolized for years as they rose to prominence in their careers as performers. This post is all for you, Michael Jackson, wherever your spirit may be. May you ascend to Heaven, after all of the freakishly troubling moments you faced in life. On the date of June 24, with the passing of Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson on the same day, this is a day in which the world of Pop Culture will forever live in infamy! May the spirit of the King of Pop rest in peace. Michael Jackson, you will forever be remembered....



A moment of silence and recollection....
