This pic is the way I remembered Michael Jackson as a child and will always remember him. He’s the reason why I would sing or hum a tune in the shower every morning. He’s the reason why I still keep pairs of trousers that have outgrown me. He’s the reason why I body-pop whenever I’m in front of a mirror (alone). He’s the reason why I moonwalk whenever I’m on a slippery surface (again, alone). He’s the reason why most of the CDs in my car don’t get as much airplay on a daily basis. He’s the reason I’ve become a fan of Usher, Chris Brown, Ginuwine, Sisco and Justin Timberlake. He’s the reason I have a romantic, imaginative and sensitive side. He’s the reason I’m writing this impromptu post at 6am in the morning even though I should be getting ready for work. He’s probably the reason why it’s been raining non stop since 4am this morning…and perhaps the reason why it still looks dark outside. He’s the reason why the world is in mourning today. His performances were electrifying and his legacy is unprecedented. For this and generations to come he is a music legend, a dancing maestro, a philanthropist, an icon of our time. He is and will always be remembered as the KING OF POP. Michael, I salute you…I miss you…and I’ll see you Neverland… 🙁
R.I.P Michael J. Jackson (1958-2009)
May he rest in peace. He is great and never be forgotten.
I could feel the impact Michael had on you … I have goosebumps all over !!
Michael Jackson is a true legend in every sense … An iconic figure who influenced all those around him with his music .. some of the best artists of the last decade or so – are blatant copies of Michael .. and yet none have been able to capture the hearts of listeners as he has ..
I too shall meet my icon in Neverland as I wasn’t fortunate enough to ever have caught him live in concert
(sigh) I’ll be fine. I’ve got ‘Off the Wall’ in my car deck to keep me happy 🙂
