Michael Jackson–The King Of Pop

The King Of Pop

Like most of the people who belong to my age group,i also started listening to english music or the first pop artist i came to hear about was Michael Jackson.I can say that i was kind of crazy about him when i was in my 9th and 10th grade.I even remember once when i was in school i emailed to a show called “Most Wanted” on MTV requesting an MJ song and guess what they played my request.I was amazed by his talent as a singer,dancer and above all a performer.I wonder about his ability to pull the crowd.The #1 entertainer in the history,the most succesfull entertainer of all time in the show business.He is trully the “King Of Pop”.I have no idea how many times i have tried to imitate his step called ‘the Moon Walk’.

His successfull career and personal life have been a part of pop culture for almost 40 years.Michael Jackson is widely regarded as one of the greatest entertainers and most popular recording artists in history, displaying complicated physical techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk, that have redefined mainstream dance and entertainment.He has been named the “Most Successful Entertainer of All Time” by Guinness World Records.Jackson began his musical career at the age of five with the Jackson Family vocal group.

In his solo career, Jackson recorded and co-produced the most selling album of all time Thriller , which has worldwide sales exceeding 104 million.After Thriller, Jackson continued to release internationally chart-topping albums like Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), HIStory (1995), and invincible (2001), his latest album of fully original material. Michael Jackson has received thirteen Grammy Awards and charted thirteen #1 singles in the US, more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era. In November 2006, the World Music Awards announced that Michael Jackson had sold over 750 million units worldwide and given $300 million to charity, making Jackson one of the best selling music artists and one of the most charitable humanitarians of all time, whose efforts on the latter front have been acknowledged with a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

Rumors of sleepover parties received negative media coverage after it was revealed that children frequently slept in his bed or bedroom. These first came to light when he was accused of child sexual abuse in 1993.Then later in 2005 Jackson was tried and acquitted of all charges.

My tastes in music has changed,i mean it has widened.But still MJ is unique,some of his songs never give me a repetetion feeling.

A song “Stranger in Moscow” is one of my all time fav. Then “Heal The World”, “Who Is It” ,”Billie Jean”,”Dangerous”………
