So he took special medication to treat his skin.The medication changed some features of his face. In 1987, Micheal released and album called: Bad. This album wasn't as famous as Thriller, but it did really good.The album sold world wide and won a award for Favorite Soul Genre Single. After, the Bad Tour had begun.

He released his eighth album, Dangerous, in 1991. Micheal founded the Heal the World Foundation in 1992. The charity organization brought underprivileged children to Micheal's ranch to enjoy theme park rides that Micheal had built on the property. He called the place he built Neverland.The foundation also sent millions of dollars around the globe to help children threatened by war, poverty, and disease. In the same year Micheal published his second book, the bestselling collection of poetry, Dancing the Dream. In January 1993, Micheal made a memorable appearance at the halftime show at Super Bowl XXVII. NFL wanted to hire someone memorable because a lot of people did not watch the Super Bowl a lot before this Super Bowl. . In 1994, Micheal got married to Lisa Marie Presley in the Dominican Republic.

The tour ended in October 15th 1997. Micheal released another HIStory album and it was number one almost everywhere. Between 200 and 2001, Micheal made an album called Invincible. The album was just as good as HIStory. In 1999, Debbie and Micheal got divorced. In March 2006, Neverland closed. People said it closed because Micheal was having financial problems and he didn't have enough money to run it. In 2007, Micheal was working on a album during that time, but it was never completed.

His Final Years
The most tragic thing happened to the world. Micheal Jackson had died. He died on June 25th 2009. Conrad Murray was giving him drugs for his vitilio. Micheal had too much of these drugs and died. Many fans were shocked at this news. After Micheal died, Television Channels aired songs of his. But he became 2009's Best Selling Album Artist. A lot of people loved Micheal because of his work. He has done so much to the Earth, like showing empathy to the poor. He was a really good artist and person.
In 1965, Micheal and Marlon joined a band called the Jackson Brothers. This band was started by Tito, Jermaine, and Joseph Jackson. All the Jackson brothers (including Micheal and Marlon) played the congas or the tambourine as backup musicians. They played Rhythm and blues, soul, disco, bubblegum pop & rock music. Later, Jermaine and Micheal were sharing the lead vocals. When this happened, the name was changed to Jackson 5. The Jackson 5 won a bunch of talent shows, such as the Apollo Theater Talent Show in 1967. After all these talent show wins, they had got famous and started touring in the Midwest and East. In 1968, the Jackson 5 started recording many songs, such as Big Boy. They also started signing with Motown Records. Rolling Stone Magazine started writing good things about Micheal. They said he had "Musical Gifts". The band then started to produce albums, such as I Want You Back. Between 1972 to 1975, Micheal produced four solo studios with Motown as the Jackson 5 franchise. The group's sales began declining in 1973, and the band members chafed under Motown's strict refusal to allow them creative control or input. In 1975, The Jackson 5 left Motown.In June 1975, the Jackson 5 signed with Epic Records, and renamed themselves the Jacksons. Randy Jackson joined the band around this time, while Jermaine chose to stay with Motown and went for a solo career. They continued to tour internationally, releasing six more albums between 1976 and 1984. This was when Micheal was the lead song writer. In 1982, Micheal contributed the song "Someone In the Dark" to the storybook for the film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial; the record won a Grammy for Best Recording for Children in 1984. In the same year he won another seven Grammys and eight American Music Awards (including the Award of Merit, the youngest artist to win it), making him the most awarded artist in one night for both award shows. These awards were thanks to the Thriller album, released in late 1982, which was 1983's best-selling album worldwide and became the best-selling album of all time in the United States. Micheal also sold 350,000 copies of The Making of Micheal Jackson's Thriller in a few months. In 1985, The Making of Micheal Jackson's Thriller won a Grammy. On March 25, 1983, Michael and his brothers were on a show called Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever, a television special. The show aired on May 16, 1983, to an audience of 47 million viewers. Micheal had showed his signature move, the moonwalk. On January 27, 1984, Michael and other members of the Jacksons filmed a Pepsi Cola commercial. Micheal also co-wrote a song with Lionel Richie which was released world wide to help aid the poor in the U.S. and Africa. Later, the song got four Grammys later.On May 14, 1984, Jackson was invited to the White House to receive an award from President Ronald Reagan for his support of charities that helped people overcome alcohol and drug abuse. Micheal won eight awards during the Grammys that year. Unlike later albums, Thriller did not have an official tour to promote it, but the 1984 Victory Tour, headlined by The Jacksons, showcased much of Jackson's new solo material to more than two million Americans. He donated all the funds (around $8 million) raised from the Victory Tour to charity. After the Victory Tour, Micheal Jackson left the The Jacksons.
